Football Academy Player Testimonials

Football Academy


2009-11 seasons

"I learnt a tremendous amount whilst at the Football Academy and the coaches there helped to make me the player I am today. I will always look on fondly at my time there and I can't thank them enough for what they taught me. I am delighted to sign an 18 month contract with Hull, this is a great opportunity for me, at a club with excellent facilities. I will be working as hard as ever to strive and progress my way towards the first team."

2010-12 seasons

“The Football Academy helped me in a lot of ways, preparing me for a senior professional environment and giving me a better understanding of football, no matter where I go in the world."

Football Academy


2012-13 season

“It is a dream come true for me to have been offered a place at Northampton Town and I intend to give it my all when I start in July. I owe everyone at FootballCV Academy a huge thank you as I would not have had this opportunity without their help and guidance.”

Karl Sagstetter, father of Ian Sagstetter

“I believe that our son Ian has benefited tremendously from his time at FootballCV both from a football and personal perspective. The level of training and competition has raised his level of play to new heights and will definitely benefit him in his future playing years. From a personal perspective I think the time on his own has helped him mature and grow into a young man. FootballCV was the right fit for our son and he’s surely grown as a footballer and person. I’ve been truly impressed by the overall setup of FootballCV from the off the field activities, overall care, education, and of course the football."

Will McAlindon, father of Jamie McAlindon

"Jamie joined Football CV in September 2011 and within 3 months has played against professional teams on a weekly basis, has participated with Wayne Rooney in a training video and is currently on trial at Leicester City. All these opportunities would not have been possible without the intervention of FootballCV. We would strongly recommend any parent to make use of FootballCV’s services in order to give their child the very best chance and opportunities."

Sarah Pope, mother of Zachary Farr

“I would like to say a big thank you for all the help and support you have given our son Zachary Farr since he joined the FootballCV Academy in September 2009. The tuition and coaching has been outstanding and has developed Zachary's skills and performance. He came to the academy straight from school and he has matured and grown into a hardworking and motivated young man. Danny the coach, has encouraged Zachary and has been a very positive role model for him to aspire to. Furthermore, for a 16 year old living away from home for the first time, I couldn't have asked for a more stable and nurturing environment. Zachary settled in well with all the lads and Ann, the residential manager, has provided a much needed motherly and caring role for him.”

Abi Oyeleke, mother of Emmanuel Oyeleke

"I am writing to you to express my gratitude and appreciation for your relentless efforts in helping my son, Manny, to secure a two year scholarship with Brentford FC. Sending Manny to FCV was the best decision we've ever made. FCV provides the perfect opportunity for playing football and studying and at the same time, the discipline needed to focus and work hard to achieve his goals. Your belief in him gave him the confidence that was lacking before he joined your academy. All the coaching and residential staff helped Manny to develop to his full potentials physically, emotionally and academically. He will undoubtedly always remember all the life skills and experiences he had during his short stay at the academy. Once again, thank you for never giving up on Manny and for helping him to begin to realise his dreams."

How to find the Football Academy

Finding us is very straightforward - we are on High Street, St. Martin's, which is part of the main north/south road through Stamford. The Garden House Hotel is located at the south edge of town adjacent to the A43 junction. Entry to the car park (inside the walled gardens) is from Pinfold Lane off the A43 at the rear of the hotel.
