"I recently hosted a goalkeeping residential Training Camp at the Garden House in December 2015. The facilities, food and accommodation were excellent. The residential staff were very accommodating and extremely professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Garden House.

Mark Hanrahan, Commercial Director

"FourFourTwo have worked with FootballCV for several years now in particular with 'Weekend Wonders' where they organised for the winners to play at grounds like Upton Park. They are the market leaders in running trials for aspiring footballers and the full-time academy they operate provides a marvellous opportunity for players to fulfil their dreams of becoming a pro player. We are delighted to be the Football Academy shirt sponsors for the season. We have also had the opportunity for the 442 team to play at pro clubs in corporate matches and believe our relationship will continue to go from strength to strength."
