Academy – NEW Signing – Jake Barker

We are delighted to announce the new signing of Academy prospect Jake Barker to the Bedworth Utd Academy ranks for September 2024. Jake can play as an out and out striker or in a wide position and is blessed with pace and an eye for goal. Jake has played for Coventry Copeswood since the age of five and has a fantastic scoring record over the past three seasons, netting over 30 goals in all competitions. Jake has attracted the attention of several Academies over the last few seasons, most recently  Northampton Town, where he was on trial. Jake, who along with his dad, are avid Everton Fans, is currently taking his GCSE exams at Caludon Castle School in Coventry and is excited at the prospect of starting at Bedworth Utd Academy.

Welcome to the football club Jake, we are looking forward to having you with us.
