The NF Football Academy supports and develops our top players by providing the highest level of coaching and player development.
Elite fixtures are played against the top Academies from across the region, including our link club, Premier League AFC Bournemouth Academy.
The NF Academy does not impact on players continuing to play for their Sunday grass-roots team or attending any other courses with us. We prepare our players for elite level Academy performance working to the AFC Bournemouth ID Centre syllabus during each term.

18 of our Academy players have progressed to AFC Bournemouth over the past 2 seasons!
We are one of only three Academies from across the South with an official link with AFC Bournemouth Academy, offering the following benefits to our players:
- Sharing the same coaching syllabus with AFC Bournemouth ID Centres.
- Coach Jesse & Coach Hugh from the NF Academy perform a scouting role for AFC Bournemouth and liaise regularly with their Head of Academy recruitment, Carl Robson.
- NF Academy teams are invited to attend the AFC Bournemouth festivals held at their Academy training ground during the School Holidays.
- Compete regularly in fixtures against AFC Bournemouth ID Centre/Academy and other elite Academies.
