Arsenal, Israel and you in 2013!

Spend 3 months in Israel, learning from one of the biggest football clubs in the world for the costs of only about $900 (not incl. airfares).Sounds too good to be true?

Well that is what is on offer to any budding footballers in year 12 or completing year 12.

In the words of the promoter “The programme is run under the auspices of Arsenal in the Community which is headed up by Alan Sefton.”

“It is heavily subsidised and generally only involves a nominal amount equivalent to GBP500 plus airfares. Accommodation and training costs are all included. The application process is very rigorous with only a few selected places from each country.”

“Alan will be [in Australia] in December preceded by an Arsenal Gap Programme trainer. Depending on the numbers of applications received, it is intended to have a block of training in Melbourne during the course of December with the “Gappers” placements in Israel to be in January and February. Interested persons will need to fill out and lodge an application form, and then be interviewed by me to make the shortlist. The final selection will be made by Alan and/or one of his colleagues.”

Sounds like the offer of a life time!
