To introduce players to the Northern Knights Football Club – Region Academy.

To introduce and implement a structured skill development program.

To focus on continual individual improvement.

To provide a healthy, disciplined Squad atmosphere.

To identify players who may be included in future Northern Knights Squads.


It is anticipated that the aim will be achieved by the following methods:

By selecting the perceived best players, through consultation with Northern Knights Talent ID Staff and naming them in our Keith Burns Squad (this list can be added to, or deleted from as the need arises).

By conducting a training program that will culminate in the Northern Knights Keith Burns Squad playing Trial Games against other TAC Cup Regions with a view of making selections of suitably talented players to be invited to summer training with 2017 Northern Knights U16 Max Richardson Squad.

By introducing and exposing players to basic fundamental football skills and  disciplines, that they might well be expected to undertake if they were successful in being selected in future Northern Knights Squads.

2016 U15 Keith Burns Squad

Congratulations to all players invited to join the 2017 U15 Keith Burns Squad.
