Shoreham FC Academy

Shoreham Football Academy (SFA) has been launched by Shoreham Football to bring young players through the ranks of youth football and give potential players the pathway to a high level opportunity of non-league football and beyond.

Go to for full details and how your child can get involved.

SAF is a football coaching division of Shoreham FC which provides a safe and friendly environment where children of ages 5-16 can learn and develop from high-level and experienced coaches such as Ian Gilmour (Head of the Academy)

Ian Gilmour has delivered professional level coaching which has helped over 40 players be accepted into professional clubs e.g. Arsenal, Chelsea, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Charlton, Stoke and other clubs

We will help to install the discipline which has seen Ian Gilmour’s past teams win the league and cup over consecutive seasons, we will encourage the winning mentality that has also seen Ian’s teams win over 50 tournamants.
We feel that there are parents who are keen for their children to progress as players, yet aren’t necessarily getting the chance to improve, as good coaching is hard to find. We intend to look at all aspects of the players game and report back on the areas that we feel need to be improved

We also believe there is a wealth of talent throughout the ages of players in our area. Sometimes the players haven’t had the opportunity to play with the best boys or learn new training ideas, yet given the opportunity they will play to their full potential.

Our Goal

To introduce young children as young as 5 years of age to football and all the positives it brings. To provide a pathway to a final destination of playing adult football at the highest non-league level and beyond. You can start at 5 years old and potentially progress through our footballing programme to playing for our senior side in the isthmian league and FA Cup

The club also has 2 teams (an U14s and an U16s) into the Junior Premier League.

We now want to offer local players the same opportunity.

Age groups:
5’s 6’s 7’s 8’s, 9s, 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s
