The North East Tour The North East Tour is well known as one of our most successful and beneficial tours for players provided by Elite Development Centres. On each tour the advanced development centres from around the United Kingdom come together for the opportunity to play teams from further afield coming up against different styles of football as well as the very highest standard of players from Premiership Academies through to the Football League and Conference setups. The tours not only offer experiences that are not available to players at their development centres but help investigate life skills in particular greater independence and responsibility. This year the North East Tour will be priced at
£399 per person and is
inclusive of travel, accommodation, food, coaching and insurances.

The bank is for all players to place their week’s spending money into a specific member of staff to look after. This avoids players losing money, overspending or running out of money. The money is then budgeted for players so that they are able to have spending money each day. The bank is available to players in the mornings and evenings
