Edukick Players Train With Oldham Athletic
Following on from one of the Edukick Showcase events four players were invited to train with Oldham Athletic.
Oldham Athletic are a league one side in the English football league. The current manager at the league one side is Former Edukick coach Richie Wellens. Richie was in attendance at the August showcase event with one of the chief scouts from the club who spotted 4 of the players to invite in.
Training at A Higher Level
Sudesh MARNER, Buhle Buka, Benjamin Hjun Woong Seol and Kingsley OKAGU were all selected for and invitation to the pro clubs training. The four players attended the Oldham training ground to train with their well established youth team. These sessions gave the players a great insight into the world of professional football and the level at which players of their age are playing at.
Once again it was a great opportunity for the boys to showcase their ability and they didn’t let the academy down. The coaches at Edukick received great feedback from the Oldham athletic staff.
This is just another example of the programme giving young players opportunities and experience in the UK game. Training with a pro club is a ‘money can’t buy’ experience which will stay with these young players for the rest of their career. They will have learnt a lot about pro football and about their game from the time with Oldham, something to build on for the future.
Well done to the boys.
