Our link with Guiseley FC has grown year on year as we offer the talented footballers, scouted by Guiseley, the opportunity to match their footballing talents with qualifications; be they the BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport or A Levels. Throughout, we aim to tailor the sixth form experience around the students’ training and playing commitments with extra support in place alongside some careful timetabling. We work closely with Dave Currie (Academy Director) and the club themselves to mean that after the two years, players have as many options academically as they do through sport.
The players will train on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon with Guiseley and have the opportunity to play games on a Wednesday either for the Academy or Sixth Form representative side.
The link between Guiseley and Benton is already paying dividends with Benton Park becoming the ESFA Under 17 National Champions in April 2016.
