The York City FC Academy has been an integral part of the club’s development culture since the 1960s. Combining high quality coaching, the latest technology and clear pathways to the professional game, the Academy is here to foster footballing talent across York and North Yorkshire. Working with local schools, York College, York St John’s University and the York City FC Foundation, we identify and nurture talent to give young people the opportunity to progress in the game.
Our success stories over the years include Jonathan Greening (who was part of the Manchester United squad that won the treble in 1998/99), Marco Gabbiadini, and Richard Cresswell. Ben Godfrey (Everton & England) also played for City in the early part of his career after being a product of the York youth system.
We have a rich history of developing youth talent, with over 100 professional players coming through our system.
