Our Elite Youth Development Programme

Stirling Albion’s Youth Development section competes at the Advanced Youth level of SFA Club Academy Scotland.  The section is led by Niall Marshall, Head of Youth Development.

U16 and U18 fixtures are ordinarily played on Sundays with training taking place on Tuesdays and Thursdays while the U20 squad train Mondays and Wednesdays with matches on a Friday night.  The U20s compete in the Lowland Development League.

Our Goalkeeper’s train as a group on a Monday with all three age groups training together, then they have a second night of training with their individual squads.

The Youth Development section is supported by a number of excellent coaching staff, as detailed below, and has recently secured the support of Sports Science, Sports Psychology, Sports Analysis and Nutrition specialists to further aid the development of our young players.
