My son Charlie has been at this academy for 5 years now and has come on so much. He has gained confidence not just in football but making friends aswell. This academy is very friendly and very supportive to all. Charlie is always happy when he is there. They offer a great half term camp and Charlie attends them all. It is well run and very organised they help alot and start from basic football to skills and getting into teams.
I would recommend this academy to anyone who is interested in their son or daughter who wants to play football.
I look forward to my training sessions every week and I am learning so much with my coach. I have met new friends and really enjoy learning all the skills.Samuel, aged 9
