Once again the Edukick Manchester players have attended the UK football trials in Manchester. As part of the Edukick development programme we are committed to finding opportunities for players to showcase their ability and progress on in the game, ad UK football trials is just one of the way that the players can do this at Edukick Manchester.
This week the players on the full programme and those who are with us for just the summer package got a chance to showcase their ability in the Manchester trial. All the players went together, with head coach Nigel, and along with around 40 other top class players, received coaching and were put through their paces in a match situation by so high level, and very influential coaching on the UK football trials. At the session there was a host of clubs represented from premier league to non-league, all looking for the next Jamie Vardy, that undiscovered talent who could be the next big signing.
The Edukick lads did us proud. In the sessions they were focused and receptive of all the information, showing their work rate and commitment from the last few weeks on the programme. In the match situation they showed their team ability, with some great link up play and some commanding performances. Off the pitch we received great feedback on the conduct of the players and professionalism, which is great to hear.
Now it’s a waiting game. We will now see if any of the scouts, the club representatives or the UK football Trials officials spotted anything in the EduKick players and want to call them back for club trials. Good luck to all the lads.
Edukick Manchester and UK football trials have been working together for some time to deliver this opportunity to our overseas players. Over the past few years, one of the directors of UK football trials, Harry Price, has visited the school on a number of occasions to talk to the players about what clubs are looking for. Take a look at what he has had to say to the players in the past, so great information for budding young players to take in.Read more
