Jason Roberts Football Academy Launch
The London launch of the Jason Roberts Independent Football Academy will take place at The Pavilion, Stonebridge Recreation Ground in Brent on Thursday 24th February.
The Jason Roberts IFA will play against Norwich City FC Academy in 3 different age groups: U10’s, U12’s and U14’s – the first match will kick off at 11 am.
The aim of the Academy is to provide youngsters with quality coaching, international experiences and life skills, whilst bridging the gap between Sunday league clubs and professional youth set ups.
Following the successful inaugural launch of the Jason Roberts Independent Football Academy at Silsoe Global Sports Village in Bedfordshire in January, the young players will again showcase their footballing skills at their home ground of Stonebridge.
The new Academy is led by head coach, Eugene Dwaah, former head of recruitment at Fulham FC.
The event will be attended by former Norwich City stars Damien Francis and Ade Akinbiyi and sponsors and partners of the Jason Roberts Foundation: Invest in Brazil – who have kindly donated the training kits for the Academy players; Wallace Cameron – who have donated the first aid kits for the team and Herbalife – who will be on hand to supply the players with healthy snacks and drinks.
The Jason Roberts Independent Football Academy is also holding open trials for its next intake of potential elite young football players on Friday 25th February for the under 12, 13, 14 and 15’s and on Saturday 26th February for the under 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11’s. Registration is between 9 – 9.45 am and the trials start at 10 am. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The trials will be held at Stonebridge Recreation Ground, Harlesden NW10 8LW nearest tube: Harlesden or Stonebridge Park, Bakerloo line.
