Southampton Football Club is searching for host families who could help look after the Academy’s potential stars of the future.

The club is particularly keen to hear from people who live in the Totton, Hythe, Marchwood or Dibden areas and have a spare room to accommodate young players aged 12 to 21.

Placements vary from short-term to long-term, as well as specialist placements for trialists or as cover for other host families.

If you are interested in applying, please be aware that this position is subject to a satisfactory, enhanced DBS criminal records check.

All applicants will also be required to undergo a full assessment with our club staff before determining their suitability. Those intending to host children under the age of 16 will be required to work within the requirements of Private Fostering Regulations.

A monthly fee is payable to the host family for the duration of the placement.

If you'd like further information on this opportunity then please email Emma Walker on
