Local And National Provision For Football

thousand boys play football, for either a school or club team, at each

thousand play between the ages of nine to 16. Only 0.6% of those five
hundred thousand young footballers register in football academies, and
a further 1.2% in centres of excellence. I am one of many who play
football and I am going to find out what the associations are doing
