5 Principles




Move ,



GBFA have an unique programme that is committed to development from 2-23 year olds. We teach players to play football the right way


No matter how hard a situation, players are taught to play their way out of trouble and retain possession. We realise players develop at different stages and are fully committed to the Long Term Athlete Development plan.
Welcome to a brand new concept in football-GB Football Academy. GB Football Academy is an organisation that promises to get every child playing at the right level and no matter their age or ability. Whether that`s JFC, Development, District/County, Centre Of Excellence, Academy or just Recreational.
GB Football Academy is based all over Stockport and works alongside the fastest growing and top ten Trusts in the country (Stockport Sports Trust). As a result of this we also work with schools in priority areas and coach children that may or may not have access to professional UEFA coaches as well as helping JFC`s in the evenings by supplying free coaching as and when needed. We also run the cheapest and best Summer/ half term camps in the North West which includes Street Striker! and run weekly Development Centres-first session absolutely FREE!

Our Aim

Established to address the gap between professional academies and grassroots football. “To provide strong foundations in football, transform players into athletes and provide the highest level of education possible to fulfil each players ambitions”
