The Exeter City Academy

Exeter City Academy, based at the club’s Cliff Hill training ground, has a growing reputation for not only producing talented footballers but more importantly, well-rounded young men. 

The Academy’s ethos is to look after the best interests of every young player in our care and to strive to have as many of our young players as possible become professional football players.

We place a young man’s personal development above his football development and demand that our young players perform well at school, behave properly at all times and learn respect to ensure they can maximise their potential, on and off the pitch. 

Scholars in our under-18 team compete in the Youth Alliance League and the FA Youth Cup. Our under-16s play in an EFL competitive league programme, along with friendlies which mirror the under-18s fixture list. 

Our under-9s up to the under-14s combine regular training with a games programme against other clubs.
