The JPL puts players needs first because they want to develop players first and foremost.

Bridging the gap between grassroots and professional academy football it enables clubs to develop their own local players who can realistically progress all the way to their first team.

The JPL is often at the forefront of change in the youth football landscape of this country. it embraces the EPPP (Elite Player Performance Plan), encouraging new ideas and welcoming change.

To help develop players the JPL plays league matches over 4 periods to allow for maximum caching input and timely substitutions.

The JPL will help Fairford Town Academy attract the best players in the area to join, giving them the opportunity to play against like minded clubs in the Junior Premier League.

The JPL promotes a safe, friendly environment in which every player can enjoy their football.

Our goal is to develop elite players, teams and coaches:

By providing an organisation of the best people and giving them the facilities, resources and opportunities to perform at the highest levels in all aspects of the game.
