YOUNGSTERS from in and around Royston could have the chance to sample the life of a full-time footballer with Histon FC's Community Project.

In partnership with leading colleges of FE, the club is offering youngsters between 16-19 a one-year full-time course that will allow successful applicants to train and play for the under-19 squad as well as gaining nationally recognised sport and leisure qualifications.

These include an industry-recognised NVQ, an FA Level 1 certificate in football coaching, and awards in exercise and fitness.

While on the course, youngsters will also get the chance to take their FA Level 2 certificate, FA Disabled Coaching course, and the FA Level 1 Futsal Course.
