Talent Pathway (Female, 16-19) Expression of Interest
As part of our Talent Pathway for female players Boston United Football Club are excited to announce an elite, full-time, 16-19 football and education programme, starting in the summer of 2024.
Female players, who may currently be in 2023/24 School Years 11-13, will train and play U19 fixtures Monday to Friday and will have the opportunity of joining and strengthening our Senior Women’s Team.
Academically players can study a range of courses form Level 2 and Level 3 Sport or Business, Personal Training and HE degrees in Sport or Business.
This exciting new venture will add to the existing programme run for our male youth teams and will involve a training programme, an exciting games programme – running parallel to our outstanding education provision run through partners SCL and Loughborough College.
Of the development, Head of Football, Ray Power, said: “This is something I am really excited about. We have an opportunity to build a programme from the ground up. It is our intent – from the very beginning – to source, train, educate and develop the very best female players within travelling distance from Boston, whilst continuing their education. Up until now, top level teenage players would have to travel for high-level training and games at big clubs. Now they won’t have to”.
If you are interested in this opportunity, and would like to be informed directly about our upcoming trial and education open day dates, please complete the Expression of Interest form below:

We are delighted to announce that Boston United Community Foundation has been named a finalist in the Outstanding Service to Sport & Physical Activity category for the Lincolnshire Sport & Physical Activity Awards 2023.
This is a fantastic accolade for our sports charity and we are incredibly proud as this year, Active Lincolnshire received the largest number of nominations to date.
Judges were particularly interested in diverse projects, activities and achievements that reveal inspirational work and moving personal stories, as well as those who are committed and dedicated to supporting people in Lincolnshire to be active.
We are incredibly proud of the diverse work we do in our local communities to help people be active, and to be recognised for the outstanding work our coaches carry out day to day is amazing.
There are eleven categories at the awards in total, with three finalises for each. Boston United Community Foundation has been named a finalist alongside Mrs Ghada Mohamed from the Lincoln Muslim Sister Forum, and Paul Fowler from 100% Swimming.
Winners for each category will be announced on the awards celebration evening on Thursday 9 November so we will release an update following the evening.

Our Under 8 Black youth football team have set themselves a target of walking, cycling or running 114 miles each (so a total of 1368 miles) to help raise money for two charities – Boston United Community Foundation and United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust.
The team have chosen to travel 114 miles each as this is the distance from Boston United to Wembley stadium – the home of English football. The team thought this was a good choice of challenge as Euro 2020 were due to be this year and so the players and coaches wanted to complete a challenge which reminds them of our national football team.

Coaches Kian and Tommy, along with their 10 talented players will use apps such as the Nike running app to help them track their distances and how far they are away from our goal to being achieved! The team can either achieve their miles in the garden at home or out on their daily exercise.
The team have just eight weeks to complete their challenge, from 19th May to 12th July. Why 12th July? The team chose this date as this is when the Euro 2020 finals would have been played and we would have hopefully seen our national team there winning the trophy – so instead on that day the team can now cheer and celebrate their own team achievement by reaching their goal.
With only eight weeks to achieve their goal, the two coaches and 10 players aged between 7 and 8 years old need your support and help to encourage them to keep pushing and achieve their end goal.
You can do this by making a donation to their chosen charities – they have set a target of £500.00 for both, so a total of £1000.00.
We will be posting regular updates on our social media pages:
