Cambridge City appoint Paul Cherry as new head of academy football

Cambridge City have confirmed the appointment of Paul Cherry as the club’s new head of academy football.

The Lilywhites are currently embarking on the early stages of launching an academy as they look to further enhance the youth pathway throughout the club.

In Cherry, who is expected to take up the role in September 2025, City have recruited someone with experience of the education sector – specialising in sports science – and he previously played an instrumental role within that particular sector at Sky Bet League One club Port Vale’s academy.

The Sawston resident is also a founding trustee of the football charity Pro Level Vision, which offers elite academy style coaching from current professional footballers and UEFA A coaches.

Cherry said: “I am honoured to join Cambridge City FC and spearhead the academy's footballing initiatives. The club's rich history of talent cultivation excites me, and I look forward to contributing to the continued growth and success of its youth program.

“The overall purpose of our academy is to foster holistic development, empowering individuals to excel not only as athletes but as well-rounded individuals with the tools to thrive in both their sporting and personal lives.”

Meanwhile, club chairman Kevin Satchell added: “We warmly welcome Paul to the Cambridge City family. His appointment signifies our ongoing dedication to providing outstanding opportunities for young individuals to flourish and realize their potential. With Paul leading the way, we are confident that our academy will thrive.”
