FC Halifax Town Host Family

FC Halifax Town are looking to recruit a host family to support a young professional player aged 17 years.  They currently have a small number of Academy graduates who are now members of the first team squad.  The club are seeking one host family to support an individual player allowing him to take the opportunity of full time training at the club.

A full agreement would be reached with the family (including payment).  Provisionally a host family would be required to provide a room and some meals depending on the training schedule for four-six nights per week as well as providing a suitable and safe environment.

It would be advantageous if your home is close to the Club’s primary training ground of; Weetwood Sports Park, Leeds University, Otley Road, Leeds.

If you are interested in applying to provide a caring “home away from home” please email Steve Nichol;

As part of the recruitment process the Club would complete visits to determine the suitability of location and to ensure that the home meets the requirements for hosting a young player with the Football Club.  A satisfactory DBS Enhanced Criminal Record Check will be required.

A fee is payable to the host family for the duration of the placement.
