Graduates & Students Contribute to NMFC League Title Win

We’re thrilled to announce that 10 of our students/graduates played an integral role across the season in helping Needham Market FC clinch the Pitching In Southern League Premier Central title this past Saturday. 

Needham Market secured the title with a remarkable 3-1 victory over Royston Town at home, marking a significant achievement for the club. Among the squad that secured this historic victory were five players who have progressed through the ranks of Needham Market Academy, with one of them currently enrolled as a student. Their contribution to the team's success exemplifies the commitment to excellence and talent development fostered within the academy.

Needham Market Academy takes immense pride in nurturing young football talent and providing a comprehensive football and education programme. The academy's dedication to producing skilled players is evident in the significant impact its students and graduates have made on the success of Needham Market FC.

As we celebrate this remarkable accomplishment, Needham Market Academy extends an invitation to all Year 11 students interested in pursuing their passion for football while continuing their education. An open event is scheduled for April 22nd, offering prospective students the opportunity to participate in an academy session on our state-of-the-art 3G pitch, led by our experienced coaching staff.

During the open event, students will not only experience the academy's training environment but also learn about the academic opportunities and support available. Additionally, students may have the chance to represent Needham Market Football Club in national competitions, competing alongside both our men's and women's senior teams.
