BRFC Academy Teams Attend 25th Oakham Football Festival.
The following teams were scheduled to attend the Oakham Football Festival along with Bristol Rovers.
FC Dallas, Leicester City, Birmingham City, Barnsley, Dunfermline Athletic,
Colchester United, Nottingham Forest, Crewe Alexandra & Sheffield United.
Each year in early August, there is an Under 12 and Under 14 Festival for professional club Academies.
The Festival is based at Oakham School in Rutland, near Leicestershire.
It is aimed at established organisations with teams playing at a high standard.
The emphasis is on player and coach development.
Whilst all teams play to win, this is not a tournament.
Academies who have attended the Festival in the past include:
Manchester United, Leicester City, FC Dallas (USA), Crewe Alexandra and Bristol Rovers.
A few images from the August 2016 tournament are included below.
