To be the best, you have to play with the best


Stoke RTC

Welcome the Junior Premier League’s Stoke Regional Talent Centre

The aim of the Stoke Regional Talent Centre is to provide progression, opportunity and challenge to all players and coaches. We have created a unique opportunity for players to experience an academy like system in a fun and holistic manner.

We aim to be the best by training and playing with the best.

The Stoke RTC train and play at Ormistion Sir Stanley Matthews Academy, Stoke-On-Trent a superb school facility and a great hub for the community. The Centre itself is ran by the Regional Talent Centre Director and Stoke City National Scout, Gareth Hamer. This centre can truly be a great pathway to Stoke City FC’s academy as Gareth and other colleagues of his will be at the centre on a weekly and monthly basis.

The Regional Talent Centre’s aim to create an environment where the children develop their footballing talent as well as developing as an individual. There is a large focus on developing the technical ability and tactical awareness of players through the training and games programme. Furthermore, using the latest software from HUDL players will be able to analyse and assess their performances during games and training.

Coupled with the Performance Analysis, players will be exposed to sport science, sport psychology and a Bio-Banding Assessment.

If you would like to challenge yourself and would relish the opportunity to be part of an outstanding coaching environment please contact Gareth Hamer on:
