The Sports Gateway footballing Academy was launched in April 2015. The academy was set up with a very clear objective; to be the best we can be. In partnership with Notts County we soon became the number one choice for young people across the East Midlands wanting to give themselves the best opportunity at fulfilling their footballing potential while achieving a truly high quality sports education. 
In August 2016 we expanded further and joined forces with Alfreton Town. This exciting partnership gives both aspiring young footballers the best of both worlds, a progression in to both professional and top end non-league football. 
Training takes place three days a week, with matches taking place on Wednesday afternoons and some evenings. Across our Academy, we currently offer the following leagues and competitions:  
Sports Gateway Elite Representative Squad 
FA Youth Cup 
National Young Alliance U19 League  
National Young Alliance U19 Cup 
SCL U19 Development League 
SCL U19 Development Cup 
Notts Youth U19 Midweek League 
Notts Youth U19 Midweek Development Cup 
AOC League  
Sports Gateway work in proud partnership with Alfreton Town FC & Notts County FC. 
The result of both partnerships has seen Sports Gateway become the biggest single site sports education provider in the UK as well as seeing a number of players trial with not only Notts County but many other professional football clubs, as well as many players making the match day 16 for Alfreton Town in the Vanarama National League Pyramid. 
Our first class facilities at Rolls Royce Leisure, Hucknall include three 11v11 grass football pitches, 3g pitch, state of the art gym, four purpose built classrooms, large academy dinning hall and fulltime academy chef.
