Entrance to the English FA's new training centre, Needwood, Staffordshire.
Entrance to the English FA's new training centre, Needwood, Staffordshire.
The English FA's new training centre has been built on the former parkland of Byrkley Lodge, near Needwood. It has been modelled on the French equivalent at Clairfontaine and comprises of eleven training pitches. However, over the past couple of years, it has been beset by financial problems and wrangles at Lancaster Gate and so at present, it is a scaled down version of the original plan. The pitches are in place; however, it still lacks the planned buildings, particularly accommodation. It has yet to be used by the England football team but Burton Albion FC, the local Conference League side make full use of its facilities for daily training sessions.
