Our brand new gym is now available for use and will play an important role in the football academy training syllabus for next season. This will aid player’s physical development and individual player programmes will be developed by Ben Blatchford our fitness coach.
The training pitch area preparation for the new season is also well underway with new visual branding, reseeding of the pitch and new training goals ordered. Work is being carried out and maintained by Ruskins our landscaping partner.
It has been a busy period for Havering College Football Academy recruitment staff searching for the most talented players in Havering to join the team next season.
As well as organising trial days, the recruitment staff have visited partnered secondary schools, local under-16s football teams and delivered coaching sessions alongside a presentation outlining the details of the course.
We are looking forward to seeing some of the players we have identified at our next trial date.
Saturday 26th March saw the first trial date for our brand new college football scheme partnered with Cambridge United FC.
Over 40 players attended the trial which took place at Redbridge Football Club. The day consisted of 7-a-side games and a presentation outlining the details of the course.
The coaches were impressed with the standard of players and the trial was also attended by Jordan Collins, Head of Academy Recruitment at Cambridge United.
