Cash from sale of former St Ives Town player Conor Washington to kick-start scholasrship scheme

When Conor Washington was sold by Newport County to Peterborough, it meant there was a sell on clause windfall for St Ives Town.

He joined the club at 16, but left in October 2012 for League football at Newport. But it was when the South Wales club sold him to Posh during January’s transfer window that a sell-on clause came into play, benefiting St Ives.

The BTEC Level 3 Football programme, run in conjunction with St Ivo Outdoor Centre, will be overseen by Jack Cassidy, who joined St Ives as first team assistant manager in the summer when Ricky Marheineke was appointed manager, and will become the youth team manager when the team is set up.

The programme is going to be in place for current year 11’s when making their post year 11 education selection. We want local players who are currently competing in the under 16 leagues to develop both as footballers and as people to prepare them for football either professionally, semi-professional or university and employment. 

We have a trial coming up which you can see through the website and all you need to do is apply via this link:
