Academy seeking digs

22 January 2014

Find a youth player

The Rotherham United FC Academy is in urgent need of host families (digs) for its apprentices for the 2014/15 season. If you think you would like to host a young apprentice professional footballer on his journey into the game please contact

We are looking for families with a spare bedroom, who can provide a stable environment, to assist the transition for young players who are moving away from home for the first time. Suitable families would be interviewed by the club and would receive a CRB check, in line with current regulations. Players would be with the host families from the beginning of July through to the following May, generally from Sunday evening through to Saturday mornings (dependant on fixtures) with short breaks at Easter and Christmas/New Year.

If you think you can assist in this area please email or write to:
