Are you looking to do three A-Levels and play at the highest level of youth football outside the professional game? If so, Luton Town FC Cedars is the place for you.

Having previously completed their Recruitment for the 2018-19 Season, due to circumstances beyond the control of the Programme, Luton Town Cedars 'A' Level Football Development Programme are now actively searching to recruit the following players:

  • One Goalkeeper
  • Two Outfield Players

This exciting Cedars Upper School and Luton Town FC partnership allows students to study for three A-Levels whilst having the opportunity to play for the club in the National League Under 19 Alliance; the highest ranked league outside of the professional game for this age group in the United Kingdom and the Southern Counties Floodlit Youth League.

This gives players the opportunity to progress into the professional game as well as preparing them to move onto university. The scheme is open to students in Year 11 from September 2017 at schools all around the region.

The Cedars / Luton Town Elite Football Programme is designed for lads who want to take three A-Level qualifications whilst receiving a full-time football training programme. The squad will work on a daily basis with two full-time Luton Town FC UEFA 'A' Licence Coaches - one is also the Scheme's Head Coach and the other is a former Luton Town Under-16 Academy Coach, who is also currently Coaching within the National League South.

Cedars Upper School had an A-Level pass rate of just below 100% in 2017, this showing the school continues to justify its great academic reputation.

The Programme provides the possibility of exit routes, dependent on players ability in to all levels of Football from The Spartan South Midlands League through to the Premier League.

Academically to be able to undertake the three A-Levels within this Elite Football and Education Development Programme, the successful applicant will need to have reached the Sixth Form five GCSE passes at 9 - 4 entry level requirement,

The three chosen A-Level subjects the applicant wishes to study must have GCSE passes at minimum 5 or above. If you are unable to undertake three A-Levels you will not be accepted. Final grades are not a guarantee of acceptance; because of the additional pressures we may require students to have higher than 9 – 4 entry requirement. Cedars Upper School will ultimately have the discretion whether to accept or decline any individual application.

Decisions on whether an applicant is of the necessary standard as a footballer will be made by the Programme's two full-time UEFA 'A' Licence coaches, either through a trial or through participation in a coaching session with the current group.

The pre-season programme is in full swing so as soon as the successful applicant is formally offered a place they will be able to participate in the sessions full-time.
