Huge congratulations for Philip Chen on signing registration forms for Portsmouth FC. All at the ETC are so pleased for Phil and to have played a small part in his development alongside his grassroots team.

With the support of Southampton FC, we recently faced a touring side from the USA. The games enabled over 60 players to gain game time and provided a platform for some competitive matches.
The Elite Training Centre hosted three festivals for U9 – U13 players. This provided a great opportunity for over 170m players to get lots of game time and showcase their talents. Thank you to Portsmouth FC, Norwich FC and Eastleigh Academy for contributing towards some competitive games.
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.
