TSC are to run their first ever Scholars programme from September 2015 in partnership with the Ursuline College in Westgate. The scholarship programmes provides the opportunity for players to enter a full time football programme to train with the TSC coaches all week alongside their academic studies. This gives players from our current academy setup and from outside our academy to take part in a coaching programme the same as players at any professional club set up. The aim of the scholarship programme is to provide high quality opportunities for participants to perform at their highest level in both academic and football endeavours. Players/Coaches will train throughout the week with TSC whilst studying at the Ursuline College, they will then represent TSC/Ursuline in the Academies League and The Schools National Cup. The programme will also involve TSC working throughout the school with all year groups to provide high quality football training to all Ursuline College students.

TSC will provide a highly structured and professional coaching programme developed for talented and passionate players who wish to progress seamlessly onto either University to play at a higher standard or to play at semi-professional or professional level.

We have two separate scholarship programmes, students have the choice of the Playing Scholarship or Coaching Scholarship.


Players will train full time with the TSC coaching staff and will be trained as a professional club would be. Every player in the scholarship programme will receive:
• Regular coaching sessions with highly qualified, experienced and professional football coaches.
• Training on individual technical ability and tactical understanding to prepare them for a potential future in the game.
• Position specific training for individuals.
• A full fitness programme including SAQ work, strength and conditioning work and individual programmes and structured, periodical fitness testing.
• Specialist Goalkeeper coaching sessions with Just 4 Keepers
• Players will represent Ursuline College & TSC in KSFA league and Cup competitions, ESFA Cup Competitions as well as the opportunity to compete in additional tournaments.
• The opportunity to participate in fixtures against professional, semi-professional and University football teams.
• Players will benefit from TSC’s extensive links within the semi-professional and professional game.
• Opportunity to take coaching badges and earn a qualification which can lead to a career in coaching or other areas of sport
• The opportunity to represent TSC in European competitions
• Players will receive a full personalised Nike kit package


For those students who would prefer to train as a coach rather than as a player, TSC delivers a Coaching Scholarship programme. These coaches will work alongside and be mentored by the TSC coaches. There will be opportunities to coach a variety of age groups and gain extensive experience as well as coaching qualifications:
• Entry on to FA Level 1 (year 1) and FA Level 2 (Year 2) coaching badges free of charge

• Potential for future employment with TSC.



All scholars will attend the Ursuline College Sixth Form for their academic studies. The Ursuline College, which has vast experience of combining scholar’s high aspirations in both academic studies and football studies, will provide the education element of the programme. The Ursuline has a specialist sports status which allows them to meet the needs of talented sports players and TSC will also be involved in coaching every age group throughout Ursuline College.
