Player Development Plan

Manorcroft United Junior Football Club is committed to maximising a players potential whilst at the football club with the aim of giving each player a strong base from which to progress. Through our player development plan the club aims to help players develop across the four corner module in line with FA coaching practices.

The ultimate purpose of the MPDP is to provide each player with a development history which can ultimately be shown to elite clubs with a view to players entering the elite game via an academy.

Below we detail how the MPDP will work;

Weeks 1-8/12

  • Players assessed by the clubs Youth development team over a rolling 8 week period.
  • Each player given a development score in each of the attributes relating to the four corner module

  • Week 8/12
  • Managers to discuss player assessments prior to Player meetings with youth development team.

Weeks 9-12

  • Each player & parent invited to a development review with the youth development team within a training session (Players only from u13's on) within a 4 week period from the assessment.

 Players scoring over a set score will be highlighted to known elite club scouts via club link.
