It’s the start for an exciting new era for the Crystal Palace FC Foundation Academy. Northampton College is thrilled to be the Academy’s new education provider and we will be fielding two teams in then 2018/19 National Youth Football League – travelling up and down the country to play fellow Foundation Academies from some of the Premier League’s biggest names. Head coach, former professional footballer and Republic of Ireland international Eddie McGoldrick, has put together a squad of talented first and second year scholars who will be training full-time and continuing their studies at Booth Lane.

The first game of the season saw CPFC take on Burnley.
