Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame showcases the New Forest Football Academy players that have recently progressed into Professional Premier League Football Academies by receiving an Academy Contract. The age groups listed are during the 2021/22 season with 60 former New Forest Football Academy players progressing into Professional Academies at the highest level.
In 2022, we were excited to confirm that one of two of our former players achieved Professional Football Contracts! Professional Footballer Eddie Beach signed his first contract with Chelsea FC after he was brought in by the club for an undisclosed fee and became the first signing in Chelsea's history under new ownership. Professional Footballer Harry Thomas signed a Two-year contract with Peterborough United FC.
In addition to our Hall of Fame, since 2016 over 150 New Forest Football Academy players have progressed into Premier League Academy training centres such as AFC Bournemouth JTC, Southampton FC Development Centres or receiving trial periods with offer Professional Academies. Massive well done to all of our New Forest Football Academy players for their hard work, willingness to learn and commitment throughout each season! Also, special thanks to the support given by parents and our local grassroots clubs for all their great work!
