An Exciting New Project!
An Exciting New Project!
Edukick Manchester international football academy has never stood still. The well-established academy’s continuous innovations are leading to more and more exciting pro club show case / try outs than ever before. This in turn is leading to more student players gaining extended pro club trials. 14 year old Blaiz Hall from Bermuda will soon begin an extended 6 week trial with English Championship club, Blackburn Rovers FC’s youth academy.
It is against this background that EduKick Manchester announce a brand new football education pathway for international players aged between 14 and 21 years.
EduKick Manchester has teamed up with the successful Hulme Hall Grammar School, based in leafy Cheadle Hulme, just south of Manchester. This popular UK independent school will provide the daily education for all of EduKick’s student players aged between 14 and 16 years. This offers these young footballers the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the genuine English high school experience whilst joining the EduKick Manchester professional academy for training and match play three afternoons per week. Students enrolling aged 14 and 15 years will follow the UK national curriculum and prepare for the 16+ national GCSE examinations in Maths, English and Science.
Hulme Hall Grammar School was the school of choice for Kasper Schmeichael, son of Peter Shmeichael and goalkeeper for Premier League club Leicester City and the Danish national team. Kasper was enrolled at the school when his father was goalkeeper for Manchester United.
“This academic year we have continued to work with the PFA to allow our players to enjoy regular guest coaching sessions led by Quinton Fortune, who played for Manchester United for seven years under Sir Alex Ferguson. These same quality coaching and exposure opportunities will now also be available to our younger players, too.” Pointed out Director, Pete Hayes.
Academic English language teaching and support will be provided by the International House Manchester study centre embedded within the school campus. This will also enable student footballers to take English language classes and prepare for recognised English language examinations, like Cambridge and IELTS, whilst also participating fully in the professional football coaching offered by the academy.
“We’re so excited about this opportunity because now it allows even younger international players to experience a British education whilst taking advantage of every pro soccer opportunity offered by EduKick Manchester Academy!” enthused Director of Football, Mick Brennan.
“As our roll of honour continues to grow and more of our international young players achieve that coveted first pro club trial, it is clear why EduKick Manchester is the only choice for the serious international hopeful.”
