Alex and George Tranter are two young brothers that have been coming to the Nottingham Forest Official Soccer Schools for nearly two years now. The boys have come on leaps and bounds since their very first session with Nottingham Forest Community Trust and our coaches are incredibly proud to see the noticeable differences in both their footballing abilities and personalities. We decided to sit down with the boys along with their mum to see just why they keep coming back.

Alex and George

Why do you keep bringing the boys back to the Nottingham Forest Official Soccer Schools?
The boys love football and really enjoy coming and The Forest Sports Zone is a great facility, really close to us and is good value for money.

Has their confidence improved since they first joined?
Definitely! George really struggled with the older boys to begin with and both were quite shy but now they are absolutely fine. It’s really nice to see.

100%

Would you recommend the Nottingham Forest Official Soccer Schools to other parents?
I already have and will continue to do so.

Do the boys talk about their day when they get home?
Yes, that’s all they talk about. Beating each other in the games, who won the tournaments, everything!
