In partnership with Shelton Athletic FC Unique FA are proud to offer the opportunity for players aged U16 to compete in the Surrey Premier League for season 2017/18.
The players will represent local grassroots club Shelton Athletic FC every Sunday in the Surrey Premier U16 League.
Unique FA will host all squad members for training every Wednesday evening in Shirley, Croydon.
The squad will train again on Saturday mornings with team manager Barry Boxall at Shelton Athletic's home ground Warbank Sports.
The Pre-Scholarship programme has been formed to create a pathway for talented U16 players to work with our UEFA A & B Licence coaches for one year giving them a greater chance of gaining a place on our popular 2 year U19s scholarship programme with Unique FA the following season, based in Sutton.
