Our Academy Director and UEFA B licensed Coach, Marce Collington, came up through one of the most successful academies in modern football, West Ham Utd. Aptly nicknamed the Academy of Football, West Hams Youth Academy produced the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Jermaine Defoe and Frank Lampard, to name only a few. As well as sharing the field with world class players, Marce's professional career saw him managed under the greats such as Tony Carr and Alan Pardew.
"I was scouted by West Ham Utd aged 11 whilst playing at Enfield FC and my life changed instantly. I was living my dream. Following eight incredible years coming through one of the most successful academies in modern football, I went on to play at a few other pro clubs before injuries meant that my playing career was definitely over.
My intention in starting this Academy is to prepare our students to reach their pinnacle and equip them with the knowledge, skills and confidence to do so. On our training programme, committed students have and will continue to succeed and make exceptional and enjoyable careers for themselves in the Football and Sports Industry.
We are pleased to be providing a clear pathway into pro and semi-pro football for youngsters and our commitment is to deliver the highest quality coaching and development for the duration of their time with us building them up to be the absolute best at their craft.” MARCE COLLINGTON, ACADEMY DIRECTOR.
