Daily Football Training

Training sessions are focused and tailored by UEFA Qualified Coaches to develop each player individually and all players collectively as a team, technically and tactically targeting competitive fixtures. In the initial weeks of a program, players will be tested and given feedback on areas for improvement. These tests will be repeated with targets set for each player on a regular basis.

Players will be involved in football-specific fitness work to improve stamina, strength and core stability, which are vital attributes in the professional game. Players will learn about their own responsibilities in play, along with team work shape and different systems of play.

Talent Exposure

Working with the Professional Football Association (PFA), we are involved in regular sessions where coaches and players from clubs use our players to coach and learn more about the game. These sessions are a great opportunity for our players to not only attend some of the best training facilities in the world, but to get seen, coached, and to interact with some of the top coaches and players in the UK.

In recent seasons our players have been lucky enough to be coached by Michael Carrick current England & Manchester United star, ex Newcastle & Blackburn player Darren Peacock, ex Blackpool & Leicester player Gary Taylor-Fletcher and ex QPR, West Ham, Manchester City and England international star Trevor Sinclair as well as ex-players Nicky Hunt, Danny Pugh, Paul Rahubka, Freddy Kanuote, and Michael Raynes.
