The Academy Board is a subsidiary of the Club Board and its role is to oversee all Academy and player development matters, including the delivery of the Club’s “Player Development Strategy”.
It drives the performance of the Academy through the use of a comprehensive suite of performance metrics defined both for the Academy itself and for its departments tasked with delivering the target outcomes.
Members of the Academy Board include executive and non-executive members of the Club board alongside senior management of the Football Department and Academy. Other members who can bring particular skills are co-opted by invitation.
The Academy Board meets monthly.
