About our Academy
Having recently achieved the silver quality mark award from the SFA, highlights the remarkable progress that our academy has made since its inception in 2016 with just a single team. The academy now boasts teams at almost every age group including amateur sides, which amounts to more than 200 children and young people playing their part in Clydebank’s vast history. With top class facilities in the form of the recently developed holm park, all of these teams have been able to develop not just as footballers but as people.
The academy’s main aim is to build a strong sense of community within the town and it plans to do this through Vision 2023. This vision aligns itself with the Bankies senior team playing junior and semi-professional football for the past 20 years, this anniversary will be in 2023. The main objectives for the academy to achieve by then are :
Having achieved the silver quality mark status the aim is for the academy to progress to gold and platinum awards.
- To use Clydebank FC as a positive institution by creating and implementing initiatives that will benefit the local community.
- Develop a successful pathway for talented, ambitious players from the academy to the first team.
