Dorchester Town Football Club Academy

Who Are We? ​

Dorchester Town FC Academy offer all 16 to 18-year-olds who are in a full-time education programme the opportunity to play in The National League U19 Alliance League and The FA Youth Cup.

Formed by former Academy Manager Mark Robinson in 2019, the Academy side participated in Division E of the National League Youth Alliance for the 2019/2020 season.

Now, under the guidance of Dorchester Town FC Club Captain Franklyn Clarke, the Academy look to build upon the success of last season, which saw a number of Academy players involved in the First Team squad.
