EduKick Manchester v Platinum

The Edukick Manchester squad took part in training game against Platinum last Friday down at the Salford Sports facility. The game was played to allow Ex professional David Mannix to step in and coach both teams through out the first half, as part of his assessment for his A license. David who is a product of Liverpool’s football academy was one of the youngest ever players to play for Liverpool reserves. He also went on to make appearances for Accrington Stanley (13), Chester City (13), Vauxhall Motors (67) and Warrington Town (87). Mannix also made several appearances in the English youth team.

It was an opportunity for the lads to be coached by someone who has a wide range of both playing and coaching experience who also has many connections with both professional and semi-professional clubs.

The first 45 minutes were played like a training session with David stepping in and providing coaching to both sets of players on both technical and tactical aspects of the game. We took the lead through a well taken goal by Ibrahim after some quick play and a great through ball from Naldo. As head coach it was great to see David using the lead up to the goal to advise all the players on how to exploit the opposition quickly. The game was played in great spirit with high energy levels from both teams, unfortunately we tired towards the end and the result ended 3-1 to Platinum. The lads benefitted greatly from the session as both positive and negative points were recognised immediately which is difficult to do in a normal game situation.

Final Score EduKick Manchester 1- 3 Platinum
