The day has arrived and the latest @EliteTrainingCe adventure begins – day 1 of hosting our first residential has included a tour of Southampton FC training ground and fixtures. Incredible hospitality from @Sparsholt_Coll. Day two kicks off with the development festival.
The ETC are pleased to announce the signing of former graduate, Tommy Block, to Hibernian FC. Following a successful campaign at Bognor Regis, the 18 year old was invited to trail with he Scottish giants and has now made a permanent move. Everyone at the ETC is delighted that Tommy has finally been given the opportunity his incredible attitude and ability deserves – good luck Tommy!
Huge congratulations to Jack R on signing registration forms with Southampton FC Academy. Jack has shown incredible resilience to earn this opportunity. It has been a pleasure to work with Jack, all of us @EliteTrainingCe look forward to hearing how he progresses with the Saints!
Fantastic to see 3 former @EliteTrainingCe boys in action for Portsmouth FC tonight. Good luck Freddie, Matt and Dan
Amazing evening in the dome at the University of Chichester tonight. Three games going on simultaneously as ETC played against Southampton FC Academy. Loads of play, loads of goals, loads of energy and loads of smiles!
The good news continues! Huge congratulations to Toby L who has recently signed registration forms with Southampton FC Academy. It has been fantastic to play a small part in Toby’s journey to date. Toby was an outstanding performer playing up a year when ETC participated in the Academy Foundation Cup at Staplewood earlier this year. All of us at ETC wish him the best of luck for his time with the Saints!
Huge congratulations to Ben B on signing registration forms with Yeovil Town Academy. It has been fantastic to coach Ben alongside his grassroots team over the past couple of years. He has always risen to the challenge of academy games and fully deserves this opportunity. All at the ETC wish Ben the very best of luck for his time at Yeovil.
On 25th November, we were invited by Southampton FC Academy to play in the Foundation Phase Cup at Staplewood; another fantastic event for the ETC players to take part in. Well done to all involved.
A huge well done to Anya who has recently signed registration forms with Southampton Girls. All of us at ETC are delighted to have played a small part in Anya’s journey. We are incredibly proud of this young ladies achievement. We are sure she will be an inspiration to many other young girls playing the game. Anya has always been a pleasure to work with and more than competed with the boys, we are sure they will all vouch for this! Anya was a credit to ETC when she represented us in Academy fixtures and we wish her the best of luck for the future #thisgirlcan
In October, we welcomed Juventus First Team coach Aldo Dolcetti to our St George’s ETC centre. After observing and discussing all things coaching, Aldo kindly took time to talk to the players about his experiences with Juve and in particular Ronaldo. A great insight into arguably the world’s greatest player. Incredible take home messages for the boys.
