Well it looks as though I have missed the chance to get a scholarship in an acadmey on a 2 year contract but can i join a year later? or is it now impossible to get a scholarship after 16?

Most academy players if good enough will be offered their first pro deal that will take affect on their 17th birthday. I believe scholarships stop at age 16 because the next step would be a pro contract.
