Weston-super-Mare AFC are on the lookout for a new Academy Manager after some new restructuring of their academy staffing.

The appointed candidate will oversee the quality of the academy at the football club from under 8s all the way up to post-16 football, and the education programme which has been running for over 20 years.

The Seagulls have a history of developing local players into First team players, moving them on to professional clubs, and developing players into quality coaches.

Ex-Club Captain Dayle Grubb, who departed Weston this summer after making over 400 appearances, came through the club’s academy.

He said: “I had a great experience at Weston Academy, I was at Weston-super-Mare AFC from the age of 16 and played in the Under 18s and 19s before breaking into the 1st team in 2009, when I was 18 years old.

Brad Ash also came through the Academy before going on to play for League One side Barnsley FC.

He said: “My time at my local club Weston-super-Mare AFC is a definite highlight of my career, to have been able to progress through the junior and academy structure, into the first team, shows the standard of coaching available at the Club.”
