BURTON Central are to join the new Solihull Moors youth structure from the start of the forthcoming season.
Burton Central has been a Development Club for Burton Albion FC based at the Henley-in-Arden Centre of Warwickshire College.
It runs teams for Under 12s, 13s, 14s, 15s and 16s, and all age groups play in the Junior Premier League South, one of the best next levels to professional academy leagues.
The league was conceived by larger clubs from the Midlands, South England & Wales who were interested in developing players through better coaching and better quality matches.
This will present greater opportunities for players who are not already in a professional club academy - a chance to play and train at a higher level and so, increase their chances of gaining exposure to the highest level of football possible.
The move, lead by Burton Central’s Paul Molesworth (head of youth) and Chris Keight (general manager) will see all their staff and players under the Solihull Moors banner next season.
