Christmas Win

Our newly formed U7 pre-Academy squad put in a brilliant display of football today to win EMC Academy’s Christmas tournament. This was the first time they have entered a tournament as a collective group. They played some exquisite free-flowing football that particularly pleased Volenti’s technical director Bobby Bowry.

“Today was one of my most enjoyable days as a coach. It was great seeing these young players play in such an open and free-flowing manner. They are only U7s and already comfortable switching play and even playing disguised reverse passes. Undoubtedly, it was the style of play that won the tournament today and that is the most pleasing thing for me”
