For Moorside Rangers F.C. and your child it means things at this fantastic club just got better. We are one of only a few select clubs to be in Partnership with a Premier League club and we expect this to attract more players to our strongly growing club.
Coaching at our club is already at a very high standard but with this new partnership we know will be able to improve on that standard.
Because of our partnership our coaches will be allowed access to Bolton Wanders F.C. Academy and Shadow Academy training sessions and training days to observe and also take sessions.
Bolton Wanderers FC Academy will also be arranging special training days for our coaches, as well as the coaching education you would expect there will also be sports injury courses run by Bolton Wanderers F.C. Academy physiotherapists.
Exceptional players from Moorside Rangers F.C. will have direct access to the Bolton Wanderers F.C. Academy system as there is a direct referral from our club to Academy/Shadow Academy. Any players released from the Bolton Wanderers F.C. Academy system will be referred to partner clubs so their progress can be monitored. Teams from our club will also be available for games against Bolton Wanderers F.C. Academy and Shadow Academy teams which will be a good test for our teams.
Our club will also benefit from the expertise of other Bolton Wanderers F.C. Academy departments, any players from our club suffering long term injuries can be referred to academy physiotherapist for assessments and given treatment plans to help their rehabilitation.
There are many other benefits to this partnership and hopefully we will start to see them in the very near future.
