THE Greenock Wanderers Academy is preparing for its sixth year start in September.

The Academy manager will be working with youth coaches over the next month to make selections for this year's intake.

Academy director John McDougall said: "It is a great achievement to be continuing into its sixth year.

"A lot of time and effort is put into raising the funds and running the Academy, but it is worthwhile when you see the improvements made to all the individual players."
