We’ve just finished installing a range of new modular buildings to give Brentford Football Club’s youth team a kick start. It’s amazing what a difference a warm, bright environment can make to the training of a group of young people.
These facilities were rightly highlighted as a vital requirement by the Premiership when the club wanted to establish a level 2 academy of young players and now they have the latest state-of-the-art facilities for their under 18’s including portable changing rooms, gyms, offices and mobile classrooms.
So many youngsters have a burning ambition to play for their football club and it is so important that this desire is nurtured and that those with the right talent get the chance to develop into the stars of tomorrow.
19 year-old Jake Reeves is a prime example of the effectiveness of the programme. Lewisham born, Jake, aspired to play for the club from an early age and successfully completed the rigorous training before finally achieving his football ambition of playing midfield for Brentford FC.
Now, the Brentford Youth Development programme caters for approximately 140 young players between the ages of 7 -21 and gives each one the best possible chance to prove their talent out on the field. During each stage, an age appropriate programme is delivered to cater for the technical, tactical, physical and psychological needs of the individual players.
One of the most satisfying aspects of our work is seeing first-hand the difference that new enhanced facilities can make to people’s lives. In this case, they are providing an ideal platform to develop the skills of tomorrow’s football stars.
