Former National and International footballers, David Norton and Mark Draper, are set to launch this grass-roots Academy to deliver Apprenticeships to 16-18 year olds and offer players a unique entry route to a sports education pathway or a professional career in football. Through relationships with professional league and non-league clubs and a Major League Soccer team, graduates of DNF could find themselves realizing their dreams of being a pro footballer here in the UK or oversees. Priding themselves on equal opportunities the programme will be free of any charges and instead will pay players a national apprenticeship wage whilst gifting them with a complete Macron training kit.
