Manchester City Football Club
EduKick academy players turning professional!

Quinn Bredin, Canadav

Quinn has gone on to success back home after being selected for Vancouver whitecaps programme and being part of the Canadian National youth programme.

Quinn was invited to a Whitecaps camp Jan5 - 17th, 2015 and the trials went well and he was offered a place in their U18 Residency program. Quinn progressed well in the first few months the coaching staff feeding back that Quinn was excelling at a rapid pace and that he had become their strongest CB. Quinn’s father commented “Being away from home so long and being a lot more mature than the typical 18 year old is helping the coaches see a long term strategy for Quinn”

In June Quinn was invited back for another year in 2016 and has been identified for the Vancouver pro-pathway program. He has more minutes than any other player since January and the coaches say he is the hardest working player according to their fitness monitoring and bleep tests. By April 2016 Quinn will know if there is a full professional contract offered for him to join first team in MLS or the second team who play in USL team.

Quinn has been listed as part of the Canada U-20 squad training to work towards the U-20 world cup in World Cup Korea Republic 2017

Eric Behrens, Germany

Eric signed for Championship club Derby County FC. Eric showed great potential in Manchester and first came to the attention of scouts at Platt lane complex, former home of the Manchester City youth academy. During September 2012, his first month on the programme with us Eric impressed the goalkeeper coaches of Manchester City that much that they invited him in to train with the club's academy goalkeepers on a regular basis. During this time Eric received some top class coaching from the city goalkeeper coaches in addition to training daily with the Edukick Manchester team and being our No 1 in matches. During the course of the programme Eric earned himself several opportunities going on trial with Aston Villa, before visiting Derby County FC. Derby straight away took to Eric with head of recruitment Craig Short saying he had come into the team and performed brilliantly. Eric spend several weeks travelling to Derby to join the team at weekends for matches, which in itself was a great experience for a 16 year old young player. After a few weeks of discussions Eric was offered a scholarship at the club and put pen to paper.

Carlos Mora, Spain

Carlos secured a trial with Premier League club Everton FC while with us here in Manchester. Carlos was performing well in EduKick training and matches and for his age was a massive 6 foot 1 in height which was an advantage for his goalkeeping position. Carlos held his own in the games against the older colleges and teams and was very consistent. Opposition team managers and coaches commented on the ability of Carlos and his first UK football trials session a few clubs were asking questions about him. It wasn't until the second trials session that Everton FC approached Edukick Manchester for details of Carlos and invited him for a trial. Unfortunately at that stage Carlos had sustained an ankle injury, which kept him from training for a few weeks, however he was determined to get back to full fitness as soon as possible and patient enough to ensure he recovered fully. After recovery Carlos attended first session at Finch Farm the training ground of Everton FC. He worked with the goalkeeper coach and the development group at the training ground and performed well, so much so he's been back several times for the coaching staff to keep an eye on his development.

Chafik Naceri, Algeria

Chafik graduated from EduKick Manchester and immediately signed a contract with Spanish side Alcorcon AD of the Spanish second division.

Chafik joined the EduKick Manchester team in January 2015 on the half year programme. His desire and drive was quickly seen by the coaches at EduKick and at the UK football trials. In the UK Chafik didn’t get his break, however during the last few weeks of the programme in Manchester he got the call to head to Spain for trials where he impressed the coaches and team so much they signed him. During his trial period in Spain he played in friendly fixtures against Real Madrid and Getafe, which was a great experience for the young player. After signing Chafik contacted us here at EduKick to tell us all about it and thank the EduKick team for everything, saying they have helped him on his path to his dream.

Danny Turgeon, USA

Lawrence Hanna, Australia

Robert Otieno, Kenya

Jethro Pang, Hong Kongv

Accrington Stanley FC a partner club of Edukick Manchester recently requested 4 of our players head in for trials following the ASFC head of recruitment Dave Bailey keeping a watchful eye on their progress after standing out at the UK football trials events. For Lawrence it was not his first invitation, as a follow up to his initial trial after being asked along to the academy when Head of Recruitment spotted him in the Edukick V Accrington Stanley Target fixture. For Danny, head of recruitment Dave Bailey has kept an eye on him since first seeing him in training sessions back in 2014. Following that Dave worked with Danny to encourage him to progress and return to the UK with the Edukick programme, where he feels he has come on a great deal and now wanted to take a closer look with Accrington Stanley.Both Jethro and Robert were spotted by one of Dave’s scouts at the UK football trials, an event that Edukick Manchester attends regularly with the players to give opportunities in the game. From here these two were picked out to go along to the next stage of trials with the club.

So for all four, it’s a great opportunity to show their ability to the Accrington coaches, experience what a UK football academy is like and get extra coaching along the way.

Miguel Hamutenya, Namibia

Miguel currently plays professionally for Norwegian first division club Hönefoss BK. Since leaving the EduKick program Miguel signed a professional contract with Bnei Sakhnin of the Israel Premier League. After a successful season with Bnei Sakhnin Miguel then signed a contract subject to a successful work permit application with Glasgow Rangers of the Scottish premier division but unfortunately the work permit application was turned down so he could not continue with the then Scottish Champions so tried his luck in Norway where he established himself as a key member of the championship chasing Strommen FC team before securing a mom to his current club.

Ismail Zaan, Maldives

Zaan joined Edukick Manchester at the start of the 2014/2015 season, and as one of the youngest players on the program he really impressed. Zaan is a complete professional, both on the pitch and off the pitch, working hard in every aspect of the programme and being totally focused on success. During his year at EduKick Manchester, Zaan caught the eye of a few of the coaches during the PFA sessions at Blackburn Rovers, and the attention of the scouts during the UK football trials. Zaan's development during his first program was fantastic due to his ability to learn, take on board feedback and work hard to improve. All the work rewarded Zaan with the Young Player Of The Year award for 2014/2015 and then his efforts were rewarded during his summer break with him being selected for his National U16's side. During August 2015 Zaan travelled to the SAFF U16's Championships in Bangladesh where he represented and captained the Maldives.

In their warm up games, they have been doing well, with a 5-1 victory and Zaan getting on the score sheet.

Cristian Cantero, Puerto Rico

Christian was recently selected for his full men’s national side, Puerto Rico in a friendly V Canada.Christian proved he was one of our most committed players over the two year period he was with us working hard and developing tremendously along the way. At the end of his time with EduKick whilst Christian hadn’t secured a UK football contract he had achieved outstandingly in his academics and looked to progress returning to the UK the following year with our partner college Myerscough to complete a foundation degree in sports coaching. Whilst doing this Christian continued with his football, playing a little with a local non-league side Bamber Bridge and keep up with his training.All that hard work finally paid off when Christian returned home and received his call up. A great achievement for Christian, representing his country at the game he loves.

Carlos Acuna, Venezuela

Carlos is currently part of Trujillanos FC U20 squad. Trujillanos FC are a professional club in the Primera División in Venezuela. Carlos attended the EduKick Manchester and was a valuable part of the of the Edukick team. His performances in training and games were always top level and he showed that he had ability in every training session. During his time in Manchester Carlos studies English and became very proficient and fluent. After leaving the Edukick program for the Christmas break to head back home to Venezuela Carlos had trials with several clubs near his home town and decided to accept Trujillanos’s offer instead of returning to the UK and now he is living his dream.

    Soccer Academies
    EduKick Manchester England Soccer Players.
    Training sessions are focused and tailored to develop each player both individually and all players collectively as a team technically and tactically targeting competitive fixtures. In the initial weeks of a program players will be tested and given feedback on areas for improvement. These tests will be repeated with targets set for each player on a regular basis. Players will be involved in football specific fitness work to improve stamina, strength and core stability which are vitally required attributes in the professional game. Players will learn about their own responsibilities in play along with team work shape and different systems of play. Players may experience different positions and coaches will try to find the optimum position and role in the games for players.

    Exposure to professional clubs is provided on a constant basis throughout the duration of our Edukick Manchester Academy programs in the following 3 key ways

    Soccer Academies Training Available:

    Regular competitive friendly games against a variety of levels of opponent from local colleges to professional academies

    Competitive Friendly matches – Games will be scheduled based upon the EduKick MANCHESTER squad's ability level to allow them to put into practice what they have worked on during the daily training sessions. These games are also an opportunity for our players to showcase their talent to the opponent coaches or watching scouts. Many of the opposing coaches from colleges also work part time in professional academies, therefore players can easily be noticed from these games and invited to attend individual trials. In addition to the regular weekly matches throughout the season we will schedule ‘target’ fixtures where we will play against academies or youth teams from the professional clubs. Past examples of fixtures played are against Preston North End, Accrington Stanley, Bury FC, Manchester United Foundation team, Manchester City Shadow squad, Curzon Ashton, Barrow FC, Altringham FC along with many colleges and visiting touring teams in the Manchester area.

    As a group the players meet to go through the weeks training and events typically on a Friday. During this session they review the game or games that have taken place watching video footage. The majority of the fixtures are filmed by us with our own SportsMast filming equipment, this allows high level filming of games and sessions (6 m high) for use in match analysis. The footage of every game is made available to all participants for enhancement of their own personal soccer/football resumes/cv’s.

    Guest coaching sessions with professional football clubs/coaches in the northwest giving you an opportunity to showcase your talent (ADDITIONAL PURCHASE OPTION)

    During the program we invite ex professional players, current club coaches and highly experienced coaches from the UK to our training ground to conduct training sessions. These are a great opportunity not only to showcase a player’s talent to the pros, but to see first-hand how the professional club coaches work and what they expect. Previous guest coaches include coaches from Blackburn Rovers, Burnley FC, ex-players from Preston, Manchester city and Manchester United along with current players and coaches from a variety of clubs on the PFA sessions. During the 2014/2015 season the players were coached by Manchester United star Michael Carrick.

    Entry into the UK football Trials in Manchester twice per 22 week course (ADDITIONAL PURCHASE OPTION)

    You will be able to showcase your talent in front of invited scouts from clubs at all levels of the football structure in the UK and playing alongside some top quality players in the trials. This is a real target for all players to get noticed. At UK football trials on average they have 12 – 15 different club scouts in attendance, all looking for players. When attending through us players also have the advantage of more information going to the scouts and the UK football trials placement officer. We submit player’s information with notes on their progress throughout their time with us and previous achievements sometimes with links to their own player profile on our website. This information is provided to all scouts in attendance. Attending the trials twice gives our participants an initial opportunity to test out the trials and familiarise themselves with the environment and nature of the event then use the knowledge and feedback gained to build, prepare and focus on the second session. In recent history we have had EduKick players selected at the events for further club trials with Crewe Alexandra FC, Bury FC, Accrington Stanley FC, Everton FC and Witton Albion.

    Regular talent exposure through our link with the Professional Football Association (PFA) (ADDITIONAL PURCHASE OPTION)

    Working with the PFA we are involved in regular sessions where coaches and players from clubs use our players to coach and learn more about the game. These sessions are a great opportunity for our players to not only attend some of the best training facilities in the world, but get to be seen, coached and interact with some of the top coaches and players in the UK. In recent seasons our players have been lucky enough to be coached by Michael Carrick current England & Manchester United star, ex Newcastle & Blackburn player Darren Peacock, ex Blackpool & Leicester player Gary Taylor-Fletcher and ex QPR, West Ham, Manchester City and England international star Trevor Sinclair as well as ex-players Nicky Hunt, Danny Pugh, Paul Rahubka, Freddy Kanuote, and Michael Raynes.

    Guest speakers from the world of football & Sport (ADDITIONAL PURCHASE OPTION)

    Throughout the course we invite guests to come into the academy to talk to players about their experiences, give advice or talk simply about how football and sport works in the UK. Along with this we invite guest speakers who could offer further opportunities to progress in soccer in the US on scholarships. These are a great insight into the game as a whole and are valuable learning tools for our participants. Previous guest speakers include heads of recruitment from Blackburn Rovers, Accrington Stanley & Everton, ex-players such as Jon Macken and Roberto Navajas, Colin Champers - professional scout, nutritionists who have worked with top players in the UK and USA scholarship programmes.

    Six weekly Reports & Feedback

    Each player and parent will receive a written six weekly report with information on their footballing progression, academic progression (if applicable) and attendance. These are vital for players to be able to assess where they currently stand and assess their goals and targets.

    Online player profile/CV

    Every player no matter the duration of their stay with us can have an online player profile which gives as much or as little information about them as they would like. These are the pages that the program newsletters get linked to if there is a particular news article on a player, they score a goal or they are player of the month. We have the ability to upload player highlights to these pages too. Through the season we have various social media pages to which information about the program and progress/success of players is posted daily. These social media pages are followed by thousands of people, shared by man including talent ID scouts, club recruitment officers and coaches. It is a great way to promote yourself so we encourage all players ot particpate and continually keep their information updated.
