''I have spent time working with Declan and Adam within a professional environment, their enthusiasm and attention to detail allows sessions to be fun, challenging and appropriate to the needs of the players. 

The Academy allows for players to have an opportunity to be coached good techniques and skills at a key development age by highly qualified and age appropriate coaches, offering each player the platform to progress their football potential within a safe and fun training and games environment''.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to Declan for the 1 to 1 goal keeping coaching he has been giving my son, after an arm injury my son had he wasn't feeling confident about going back in goal but now he is currently doing weekly sessions and is coming on amazingly well. Without these sessions I don't think my son would have got back into goal keeping. He also attends the holiday courses with Declan, Adam and their staff and enjoys every minute of being there, not only do they provide excellent football coaching they have also taught my son to tie his shoe laces which he has learnt in just one session by watching a coaches method. I cant thank them all enough"
