WHO AM I?

Name: Stuart Jones

Position: Head of Academy - Blackburn Rovers F.C.

"We’re really excited to be able to get over to that side of the world and put Blackburn Rovers on the map

We will share the resources we have in our programme, our sessions, our coaching philosophy and how we work. It’s a case of giving them some ideas and them sharing their experiences with us.

Ultimately, it’s about growing the brand of the football club in another part of the world, with an organisation like the British Football Academy, who have a fantastic youth system for developing players."

THE PARTNERSHIP

What does this partnership bring to BFA Singapore

BFA are proud to announce our international partnership with former English Premier League Champions Blackburn Rovers.

The partnership will see BFA staff work closely with Stuart Jones, Head of Academy, and his staff in developing a playing philosophy and syllabus that resembles that of the category 1 academy used at Blackburn.

This will allow BFA to be at the forefront of youth development in Singapore by having our players train the way the elite academy players in England do. Throughout the partnership we will be sharing coaching sessions and philosophies with the BRFC staff to improve what is delivered by BFA staff as well as educating our players about the importance of nutrition, psychology and sports science via BRFC expert staff with our players having access to their player / parent workshops and podcasts. 

THE ELITE PROGRAMME

PROUDLY IN PARTNERSHIIP WITH BLACKBURN ROVERS F.C.

BFA are proud to announce the launch of our Boys and Girls Elite programmes starting next season, August 2020. We have worked closely with our international partners Blackburn Rovers FC to provide an elite level training programme that is age specific and child centred which will be the best Football Development programme in Singapore. 

 

We have recently partnered with AM Sports Tours and our aim is to bring the best young players in the country (Singapore) together to develop and give unique pathways and exclusive overseas opportunities. These opportunities will include representing Singapore at the Heart of Midlothian tournament in Scotland that is attended by the likes of Juventus, Liverpool & Borussia Dortmund to name just a few. BFA have been given exclusivity by AM Sports Tours to put together a team from Singapore to enter this outstanding tournament: https://vimeo.com/335147918 

 

BFA will also be giving the players a chance to visit Blackburn Rovers’ world class training ground, be trained by their coaches and to play matches against their academy teams. You will also get the opportunity to play other professional academies in a mini tournament, including Manchester United, Manchester City, Wigan, Leeds, Everton and many more. This trip will give the players a great opportunities to be scouted by the various clubs in attendance.

 

Working closely with the Blackburn Rovers Academy Manager Stuart Jones and Head of Recruitment Simon Cooper to provide Blackburn with regular updates on players who are excelling on the Elite programme. The children will be given detailed termly reports and a training programme designed around the BRFC syllabus. Any BFA Elite programme players who are talented enough to play in the UK are ready to jump straight into a familiar way of training at BRFC. 

 

BFA are not limited by only giving the Elite players an opportunity in the UK, with our many partnerships and links we can offer opportunities at clubs in Europe, USA, Asia and South America.
