Great experience for the young ETC players last night who travelled to Chelsea FC’s training ground. Lots to take away from the games and look to develop upon in the coming courses.
The ETC is delighted to announce that Mite has recently signed papers with Portsmouth FC. It has been a pleasure to work with such a talented young boy who always demonstrates such a love for the game. We are certainly he will thrive in the Academy environment and wish his every success going forwards.
11 years on and the ETC is still going strong! As they say, you’re only as good as your team. Thank you to everyone who has supported and shared the journey with us so far.
Following a multi-million pound investment by Hampshire FC, Stoneham Lane Sports Complex opened for ETC business on Monday 16th September. The state of the art facility will now be the regular home of our HP centre for ages 7 and up.
Our second residential course, this time held in the summer, with another roaring success at Sparsholt College. With small sided games, seminars, fixtures and evening entertainment on offer, the children in attendance had a fantastic experience and the feedback was amazingly positive.
The ETC had a great away game experience at Chelsea FC, topping off a fantastic week of action. An added bonus saw Chelsea first team finishing at the same time with many Premier league stars met.
The sun beat down as the annual ETC summer course got underway. A variety of small sided games lay in wait with multiple sports being used to develop skills and understanding.
Fantastic to have former ETC and current Portsmouth FC player, Matt Casey, visit our Cowplain centre last night. The children asked some great questions and took some sound advice on board from Matt. All of us wish Matt continued success at PFC.
Fletcher has just joined Brighton FC after impressing during his trial period. Fletcher has continuously demonstrated an attitude and desire to develop and has gone from strength to strength throughout his time with us. We have no doubt that he will continue to excel in the Academy environment.
Huge congratulations to Tom Stuckey, who has recently signed registration papers with AFC Bournemouth Academy. He is one of the most competitive and determined young boys we have had the pleasure to work with. All at the ETC wish Tom the very best of luck and hope he enjoys the experience fantastic Academy football has to offer.
