Making it to the last 16 of the National EFL Cup and playing at a high standard with my friends.
Have you improved as a player during your time with us? If so why? What have you learnt?
I’ve improved a lot technically. I have seen major improvements in my finishing, my first touch and decision making.
Has this experience given you the platform & confidence to progress to the next stage of your academic/playing career?
My confidence has improved, and my overall footballing ability has enhanced. I have the belief that I can now push on to higher levels both on and off the pitch.

The relaxed environment you are in, and the fact that the coach’s and tutors don’t feel like teachers but more like friends.
