Why not come down and find out for yourself?



Our Goal

Our goal at The Simon Francis Football Academy is to offer the children academy standard training for both boys and girls at any age, for affordable rates. We ensure with the right blend of enjoyment and guidance to take them to the next level. We are partnered with Ashdown Leisure Centre and have access to the South Coasts premier facilities.


Our AFC Bournemouth Link

We are privileged to announce an exciting feeder link with AFC Bournemouth Academy. This gives the players an opportunity to get on the player pathway, and are pleased to announce already two players making their way into AFC Bournemouth ID Centres. The link equally allows players to come back down from Academy/ID Centre's into the Simon Francis Football Academy to be monitored further.
