The National League have granted 22 clubs an academy licence for the inaugural National League Football Academy season.


Starting on September 11, the 2019-2020 campaign will be formed of two regional divisions — 12 clubs in the South and 10 in the North — and clubs will participate in an additional cup competition later in the season.

The National League's head of player development Gary Owers, said: "The National League and National League Youth Alliance is committed to youth development.

"As part of our ongoing strategic approach we have implemented a scheme for clubs to demonstrate their own commitment to raising and maintaining standards in this area.

"The licencing process involved clubs meeting required criteria set by The National League.

"The aim of a National League Football Academy is to provide an environment and player pathway which allows cubs to develop and produce more and better homegrown players."
