2016-17 Season – so Far

We are now coming up to the Christmas break in a couple of weeks with a third of our Season (Sept-Dec) nearly complete.

Yet again, we have some highlight we wish to share

· Standard of coaching has been excellent and revised coaching syllabus has been a great success
· Players excelling with the help of additional SAQ sessions on top of technical program
· Recruitment going very well as we continue to attract good players who are keen to push themselves and develop
· Over 200 boys attending NW Elite Academy / NW Pre Academy
· Introduction of U7s at the Pre Academy – currently recruiting also
· Games program going well with more than 30 matches played so far in 1st third of Season – eg. Man City / Blackburn Rovers / Everton / Blackpool / Fleetwood /Crewe Alex / Bury…… mention a few
· Plenty more games programmed in for the New Year – to go on fixtures list shortly
· We have had 10 “GRADUATES” since Sept 2016 who have signed contracts with clubs such as:- Blackburn Rovers / Wrexham / Tranmere / Fleetwood / Chester…….. to mention a few

So as you can see 2016-17, our 5th Season as NW Elite Academy is going extremely well and we are all looking forward to the coming months.
