Our Testimonials

My son absolutely loves going here and in a short space of time we have already seen a great improvement in his game. Would highly recommend these sessions.


My son absolutely loves playing at FC Academy. He’s improved so much and has had amazing opportunities which he will remember forever.


I can’t rate FC Acadamy highly enough my son joined back June and has come on so much. He looks forward to going every week and loves playing in the matches. Ian and the team of coaches are amazing they encourage everyone no matter what their skills are and constantly praising all the children, and it shows through the kids energy and efforts.


Great set up, have really seen the improvement in my son over the last few months due to the structure of the sessions and the way the coaches interact with the children. Would recommend to anyone who would like their children to improve their football skills.


I can’t recommend FC Academy enough. Been there from day one and never had a bad session, both my children enjoy the coaching and how different it is from week to week and I have seen the improvement from both of them. It doesn’t matter what standard of player you are its all about encouragement, having fun and developing skills for the individual child. And although they are an Academy and not a team they still get to go to places like QPR and Maidstone. Nieve and Sam have always come off the pitch with a smile on their faces which is a true testament to Ian and all the coaches.


I can highly recommended FC Academy. Ted absolutely loves his sessions there every week. He has done both the football and goalkeeper sessions and comes home buzzing and happy every week. He has improved a lot since attending FC Academy and he has learnt so much from Ian and the guys there. He has also had the opportunity to play matches against Gillingham and Maidstone and both times really enjoyed himself. Thank you!


My son has recently joined and absolutely loves it. Proper football training.


My son loves FC Academy! Ian & the other coaches are fantastic and all provide a high standard of coaching in a really positive environment. They are constantly encouraging and every child has a smile on their face while they train. I love the fact that Jude is developing as a player but also having fun! He really enjoys the sessions, and has had the opportunity to play matches against Gillingham and Charlton etc which he’s loved. We’ve recommended FC Academy to lots of friends since Jude started, and will continue to do so.


I would highly recommend FC Academy. Both of my boys love their Friday sessions, look forward to FC every week and always come out buzzing. They have been given amazing opportunities to play against Westham, Brighton and Charlton, making memories that will last a lifetime. Ian and the other coaches are brilliant.
