ITFC ACADEMY ASSOCIATION

At Ipswich Town Football Club we develop young players through our Academy. The route for our home grown players has a proven track record of success over many years. We continually strive to create the best environment, welfare, facilities, and coaches to ensure that every Academy Schoolboy has the chance to develop their skills whilst they are in our system.

As well as their day-to-day training, all Academy Schoolboys & Scholars have to take part in educational lessons. The weekly lessons form part of their all-round development and outside tutors are employed to deliver the topics to the players.

We currently have over 140 players and 10 Teams within the ITFC Academy from U9s to U23s.

Academy Association Friends & Sponsors play a vital role in helping us to ensure that all of the young footballers in our Academy thrive and are given the best possible chance to follow the likes of players gone by including Kieron Dyer, Titus Brambell and Tommy Smith, plus more recently, Teddy Bishop, Josh Emmanuel, Myles Kenlock, Tristan Nydam, Andre Dozzell, Flynn Downes, Jack Lankester, Idris El Mizouni and many more in breaking into the ITFC first-team.
