Welcome to NPL Football Academy (Warrington Town FC)


"We are proud to be leading the way again with the backing of the FA and the expertise of the guys behind the scheme. There are many academies and numerous youth leagues but the NPL Football Academy is the first to combine both.

"The NPL Football Academy will create a pool of player talent for clubs to draw upon and benefit from directly as well offering young people a fantastic path into the sporting industry through the qualifications and the real experience our clubs will be delivering.

"Not every student will go on to a career as a player and together with greater community engagement for the clubs, they'll also be playing a vital role in introducing the next generation of administrators and volunteers into sport and we hope, Non-League football."

About us

The NPL Football Academy in conjunction with the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League is the first in English football to launch a youth league and academy combining football with further education.

An initial pilot programme that begins in 2014/15 will see students aged 16-18 at five clubs - Burscough, Leek Town, Mickleover Sports, Radcliffe Borough and Romulus - before expanding to 12 teams in 2015/16, studying for a BTEC Level 3 in Sport on two year courses as well as working with FA/UEFA licensed coaches on a daily basis and competing in the Evo-Stik NPL Youth League and national competitions led by the FA Youth Cup.

The programme will run alongside existing youth set-ups at participating clubs, offering the best of each year’s intake the chance to play senior Non-League football at a level that has a fantastic reputation throughout football.

The initiative which will double in size the following 2015/16 season, will be regionalised and crucially, will also generate a welcome new income stream for clubs with students learning and training on site for 18-20 hours per week.

    • The 12/13 season saw the club go through a major transitional change on and off the field as the club went through some 62 players, off the grass Managing Director Toby Macormac brought some new sponsors on board who bought into the potential the club was showing in a town deserving of league football. However the season petered out to an 11th place finish but showed real signs of change towards the end as Reid looked to have brought in some quality.

      Those changes rang further true when Macormac stepped up to take over as Chairman for the 13/14 season and although we lost the first two matches the team went on a 19 match unbeaten run and remained at the summit for 17 matches. It was many seasons past when the crowds has something to shout about as the club reached the playoffs for the first time in its history and broke some long standing records. Unfortunately we lost the playoff semi-final to Bamber Bridge but at last has plenty to be proud off.

      In a deja-vu type scenario the team lost the exact same two opening fixtures of the 14/15 season to the same two teams as last season! but what followed no one could ever have imagined.It started with a 7-1 Prelim Round win over Barton Town Old Boys followed by.
