      My 17 year old son was told that he would have been signed by a League 1 Category 4 academy if he was 16 but because he is 3 months older than 16 he is not eligible. Can anyone explain how the academy system work, would the same apply to category 1 and 2 academies? Thanks.

      Hi Hanno,

      Thanks for your comment.

      All football academies within the Elite Player Performance Plan cater to ages U9 to U21. Can i ask who told you your son he was told old? Perhaps this person was a scout or manager for the u16’s age group, meaning your son would be to old for his team?
