Rotherham United Community Trust (RUCT) is proud to announce the progression of six exceptional young talents from our Future Stars programme to professional football academies. These players have demonstrated remarkable skill, dedication, and growth, earning them spots at the Rotherham United F.C. (RUFC) Academy and Sheffield Wednesday Academy.

Freddie, Felix, Oli-Scott, Hugo, and Fin have all signed with the RUFC Academy, marking a significant milestone in their football journeys. Each of these young athletes entered the Future Stars program at different stages, with Fin joining as early as age five. Their advancement is a testament to their hard work and the 5-star training provided by our dedicated coaches.

Fin, who has been with us the longest, has shown us nothing but perseverance and growth. His journey from a young boy with a passion for football to a promising academy player is truly inspiring.

In addition to our RUFC Academy signees, we are thrilled to celebrate Oscar, who has successfully signed with the Sheffield Wednesday Academy. Oscar’s journey through Future Stars highlights the diverse paths our program can pave for young athletes.
