English youth team visits MV8 Football Academy

The U13s youth team from Deddington Town FC in England has visited the MV8 Football Academy for a week long short stay programme.

Accompanied by trip organiser UEFA B Licenced coach Adam Bradley, the 14 strong English squad undertook five mornings of Technical coaching with Massimo Valenziano and the MV8 staff. The team also had the great fortune to spend a morning session with visiting coach Michele Stivaletta, who has coached at Juventus.

The boys from Deddington Town also had plenty of time to soak up the food, culture, sights and the fantastic weather of Seville during their trip. A full programme saw them also taking in the outlet stores, a Real Betis stadium tour and plenty of swimming and sightseeing.

Commenting on the trip, organiser Adam Bradley stated “This was my first trip to MV8 as the sole organiser and will hopefully be the first of many more to come. The boys have come away with so much to take back to England. It was a joy to see them engaging with this level of coaching and all in the ‘MV8 style’. I have only been back a few days and have already received many comments from parents and players saying how much they enjoyed it and would love to go back!”

“It was a pleasure to have the Deddington squad here,” stated Massimo Valenziano. “I sincerely hope that they continue to improve as much as they did in the short time they were at our Academy. We play a different technical style of football than in England and so they will hopefully return with a great advantage after their time here.”
