Jamie Carragher is set to build his first football academy outside of Liverpool.
Permission has been applied for to build an academy in Preston. If permission is granted the academy will be built, which will include a 3G sports pitch and gymnasium.
The Academies specialise in 16-19 year olds who wish to combine progression into football or coaching with the dynamic area of physical education, sports coaching and sports development. The students look to leave the Academy with a BTEC Diploma.
We will keep you updated on the progress of this project.
