We have launched an exciting new programme with U19s coach Darren Murray at the Hearts Football Academy, Riccarton. 

Darren has a proven track record developing players such as Lee Wallace, Christophe Berra, Andrew Driver, Scott Robinson, Gary Glen and Gordon Smith who have all made an impact in the first team in recent seasons.

Sessions take place every Friday from 4pm-5.30pm during the school term and are open to young players aged 8-12 years who are currently playing club football. Session themes include ball control, possession, patterns of play, shape and finishing. Each session concludes with small sided games.

Darren and the coaching staff provide each player with regular feedback on their development.

Darren said: "This programme aims to progress players through a weekly programme with their development and progression key throughout.  Players will be continually monitored and we aim to develop each players technique to their highest possible level."

Cost: £35.00 per month (includes Academy training kit).
