To mark this year’s World Mental Health Day, League Football Education is signing up to the Mental Health Charter for Sport and Recreation. The initiative has been launched by the Sport and Recreation Alliance, the Professional Players Federation and EFL’s charity partner Mind.
League Football Education continues to provide past Apprentices with the opportunity to earn a route back into full-time football through the Erasmus+ Player Placement programme, which sends players out to Sweden for three months.
Fourteen former apprentices have been handed the opportunity to earn a route back into professional football after being recruited for a League Football Education (LFE) representative team that will play against Jamie Vardy’s V9 Academy.
LFE’s Assessment Trials get underway today, with a large number of apprentices hoping to impress in front of scouts from professional and semi-professional clubs, as well as Universities from the UK and abroad.
