Joseph Starbuck & Arun Jones are the latest successful pair to sign for the Lincoln City FC Centre of Excellence. It now brings the total to eleven players who have been successful in gaining a contract with the youth department at LCFC.
Advance Centre coach Lee Rostron was extremely pleased as they have come through the Player Development Centres and spent this season at the Advance Centre. Both players have worked extremely hard to reach the top level, and have impressed the Centre of Excellence coaches in their fixtures. The Advance Centre plays regular games against the Centre of Excellence throughout the season in order for their coaches to view our players, and after proving themselves on numerous occasions, both were offered a six week trial which finished last week. Joseph and Arun will now join up with the U11’s for pre-season training in July. Each have taken their own route through the centres, Arun attended the Lincoln PDC Fridays 5-7pm at the University and Joseph attended Market Rasen PDC Thursdays 5-7pm at De Aston Sports Centre. After impressing the PDC coaches they were invited to join the Advance Centre on Mondays, where they have honed their skills for their next challenge. We would like to wish them both the best of luck in their new team next year and look forwards to their continued development as young footballers. Well done lads!

Max Gowshall & Eduardo Tansley are the latest Advance Player Development Centre players to sign for the Centre of Excellence.
Advance Centre coach Lee Rostron said “This is great news for these two; both have attended the Player Development Centres and progressed right through the youth development ranks to reach the elite level at this football Club. It also shows the player Development pathway structure works and is producing players that hopefully could go on and, eventually who knows one day, play for the club.“
Max & Eduardo have worked extremely hard, in the Advance Player Development Centre on Monday nights, to get this far. They have impressed with their performances in matches against Nottingham Forest Grass Roots, Arsenal Soccer School and The Centre of Excellence sides. These performances earned them a six week trail with U11’s, which resulted in both of them signing for the Imps.
With these two progressing on from the Advance Centre, it has now brought the total to eight players who have signed for the Centre of Excellence since the start of the PDC’s back in September 2010, with more set to go on trial in the coming months. The PDC’s have been a fantastic success whether for players wishing to reach the top level, or who just enjoy playing and making friends. If would like to attend any of the Development Centres please give us a call on (01522) 563792 or visit our PDC page.
