The Rotherham United Academy is looking for host families (digs) for its apprentices/ young professionals.

If you think you would like to host a young 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.

Of course, at present these dates are subject to change depending on the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.

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

Richard Hairyes,

Academy Manager,

New York Stadium,

New York Way,


S60 1AH.
