We pride ourselves on developing players in a safe structured environment, working to a coaching syllabus which has given us the capability to help both talented boys and girls reach their full potential.
The current St Neots Town FC Academy was established in 2012 under the guidance of the Clubs Director of Football and Academy manager Iain Parr.

Director of Football/Academy Manager – Iain Parr
“At SNTFC Academy, we have a minimum of 2 coaches in each age group and a lead coach to oversee u8’s-u11, u12-14’s & u15-18’s. My Job as Academy Manager is to create a stable, structured, safe environment for young players to develop and fore-fill their potential. The player’s individual development comes before winning football matches unlike lots of other grassroots clubs, but if we get the squad balance right, players and parents buy into the philosophy, the team will be competitive and players will progress.
All coaching staff follow an annual coaching syllabus and players have IDP (individual development plan) to complete to aid development.
All teams train twice a week and play Saturday fixtures, currently out u8’s-12’s play in the Cambs leagues and the u13-16’s play JPL (Junior Premier League), our Elite boys U18’s compete in the Thurlow Nunn mid- week floodlight league and our Elite U18’s girls compete in the S-Tech girls league on a Saturday morning. We push and challenge players and every group will have players that play up a year when showing the correct attitude to do so.

Our development pathway has seen many young SNTFC Academy players move into pro clubs and this is something we actively promote. We have an incredibly strong relationship with Cambridge Utd FC, our 1st team manager is a full time member of staff with CUFC, we will be watching some of their brightest young players grace the main stadium pitch at St Neots Town FC this season, the CUFC Academy train on the GESS 3G Arena and Rowley Park is also the home of Cambridge Utd Women. We also have good relationships with Peterborough Utd, MK Dons, Stevenage, Luton Town & Norwich City. These links help’s our players showcase their talents and hopefully get a shot at the next level”
