Academy Recommendations

(Charlie Leonard, Paul Leonard)

“Charlie started attending The No.1 Football Academy when he was 4 years old and went to camps during school holidays as well as having regular 1-1 coaching. For me the academy offers the right amount of technical coaching as well as keeping football fun for the kids. Meaks 1-1 sessions develops individual player progression, whether they just want to enjoy football and get better, or progress to pro club academy level. At 8 Charlie trialled with Bristol City Academy before eventually signing a contract with Bristol Rovers Academy the following year. I would thoroughly recommend The No.1 Football Academy.“

(Ben Carpenter, Lucy Carpenter)

“Ben has been training and learning at The No.1 Football Academy for two years. The level of coaching has been excellent, not only has his football ability improved no end, his fitness, discipline and confidence has gone from strength to strength. Definitely our best decision choosing this academy! I would highly recommend, regardless of the childs ability, attending The No.1 Football Academy.“

(Martha Haines, Dr.Russell Haines)

"The No.1 Football Academy provides a fantastic opportunity to all aspiring football players. My daughter has been at the academy for a number of years and developed a real passion for football. I have watched her develop her skills and fitness and gain in confidence, both on the football pitch and also as an individual. Michael and the coaching staff have an infectious enthusiasm and communicate in a language the kids respond to. For me the standard of coaching is nothing less than superb”

(Donavon Jefferies, Sarah Rosenburg)

“Donavon (age 8) first joined the football tots scheme when he was 3 ½ years old and thoroughly enjoyed it. He has now progressed to playing in the academy set up as well as having smaller group sessions with the coaches. All the coaches have successfully found a really good balance between fun and discipline and there has been a considerable improvement in his skill and confidence. Michael, Karl and Connall have made a real difference to how Donavon approaches not just football, but all sport. Their substantial knowledge , encouragement and regular personal feedback to Donavan has allowed him to make noticeable progress with a clear understanding of his next steps for improvement. He is now no longer just a young boy who enjoys playing football with his friends as a member of his local club, but someone who is more confident, determined, disciplined and skillful. His fitness has become important to him and above all he really enjoys the sessions-whether they are academy sessions (where he gets to play with children of various ages and abilities), more individual sessions (which focus more on skills and fitness) or the holiday football camps (which cover it all).

Thank you very much The No.1 Football Academy for all that you do!“
