SEFA Maidstone Academy to return to Maplesden Noakes

Soccer Elite FA is over the moon to announce that our Monday Night Maidstone Academy Centre will return to its spiritual home, the Maplesden Noakes School, at the end of this month.

The move 3 miles up the A20 from K Sports to Maplesden Noakes has finally been confirmed after the final touches were put on the brand new artificial pitch at Maplesden Noakes.

Maplesden Noakes, based on Buckland Road, just a couple of minutes from Maidstone town centre, was previously SEFA’s home in the county town from 2012 to 2020. During this prolific period a number of future professional footballers came through the ‘Mapes’ doors, with countless others moving into the semi pro game.

Meanwhile our Maplesden Noakes Education Programme – which provides sixth form courses and daily football training for post-16 students – is currently in its tenth season. By returning our Monday night training sessions to the school, we are in a position to once again strengthen the link between our Academy and Education Programme, providing a viable footballing and academic pathway for all of our young players.

We have extremely limited spaces available for players in school years R-9 to join our Maplesden Noakes Academy centre. To secure your free no-obligation taster session, please fill in the form here.
