Academy fixtures and results

Academy Vision

The Mission of Forest Green Rovers FC Academy is to develop game intelligent players who can add value to our first team squad. We aim to develop our players to be Global Citizens that contribute positively to their communities and help make our planet more equal, fair and sustainable. We strive to be honest, open and ethical and provide opportunities for each player to achieve their potential.

Category 3 status

Forest Green Rovers FC are a Category 3 Academy with teams from U8-U18. Our U8-U16 players are on part time programmes and therefore their training programmes are delivered on evenings and weekends. The U18 squad are full time at the club and therefore they train daily alongside their education programme.

All Forest Green Rovers FC Academy teams take part in the EFL games programmes with the U18 also playing in the FA Youth Cup. Alongside this we play additional fixtures against a range of clubs to provide a varied games programme for our players. Forest Green Rovers FC Academy provides a safe and positive environment to develop young players. If you have any questions about the Academy, please contact academy@fgr.co.uk
