training ground guru | TGG Live: Youth Development Webinar


Written by Training Ground Guru – October 24, 2021

OUR youth development event is back to provide insight into working practices at top clubs.

The inaugural event took place at Manchester’s AJ Bell Stadium in 2019, with attendees from dozens of clubs and federations (including Manchester United defender Phil Jones).

This year’s event is online, at Tuesday, November 30, and will include:

  • Nick Cox: Academy Director at Manchester United.
  • Michael hamilton: Head of the Academy To AFC Wimbledon.
  • Gregg Broughton Director of the Academy in Bodø / Glimt.
  • Ged Roddy MBE: Technical Director at Charlton / Modern System Architect at the Academy.
  • By Mertesacker: Director of the Academy at Arsenal.
  • Russell Earnshaw: Player Developer with PostPro.

During the webinar, we will also unveil the results of our exclusive Academy Productivity Rankings, compiled by TGG’s Josh Schneider-Weiler. The rankings, which we also published in 2017/18 and 2016/17, are the only publicly available resource of their kind.

They will rank category academies 1 to 3 based on the number of professional players they produced in 2020/21.
