Hemel Hempstead Town FC is now accepting applications for next season’s U18 Youth Academy squad.

Applications will be considered from talented Year 11 students who are leaving school in May 2014.

The academy is designed to help U18 players make the transition into the Hemel first team, or even into the realms of pro football.

Ben Pattie is the most successful academy graduate to date, with the youngster having been snapped up by Championship high-flyers QPR earlier this season.
