Head Coach, Deon Burton..... "We try to find that piece of the puzzle that’s missing from your game, be it on or off the pitch. Sometimes it takes a little change/adjustment to make the biggest difference. The Academy replicates what you would expect from an elite level football Academy. At Rochdale Mids the UEFA A & UEFA B Licence coaches will all put in 100% effort every day, all we ask is you do the same in return".
