Harrogate Town to host football development sessions at Rossett Sports Centre
Sep 28, 2023

Harrogate Town is set to host player development sessions at Rossett Sports Centre.

The club has announced the centre has become official partner of Town’s player development centre.

It means pupils will have the opportunity to be coached by PDC coaches including first team captain Josh Falkingham, former Bradford City defender and now the club’s professional development phase coach Rory McArdle and academy manager Josh Law.

The player development scheme aims to enhance the talents of young footballers in the local community. 

As part of the partnership, regular football sessions will now be held at the school.

Tim Milburn, Rossett headteacher, said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Rossett School to work alongside Harrogate Town, a professional sports team, to develop young players while we also work hard to develop our young people as well within the school. 

“This partnership also gives our children to work with some fantastic role models from the club while our staff also play a key role in the development of the young people who pass through.”

Sarah Barry, Harrogate Town chief executive, said:

“We are really excited to be partnering with Rossett Sports Centre and Rossett School moving forward. As institutions both parties are known for their dedication to educational and sporting excellence as well as their fantastic community engagement.

“This partnership will help us provide a platform for young people to develop their skills, build confidence and enjoy playing football with a team of highly qualified and experienced coaches, including professional athletes.”
