The overall visiion of the Academy is:

Principles of Play
The Academy's six Principles of Play define the style of football our teams play and provide the backdrop for our coaching programme throughout all age groups.
|In possession||Out of possession|
|High tempo possession based football||Making play predictable|
|Playing out from the back||Pressing from the front|
|Transition: counter attack||Transition: 5 second regains|
The Academy never stands still and we are always looking to improve our player development programme with the support of open minded, professional and driven members of staff.
