Learning Points

We take pride in our holistic view of football training and strongly believe that becoming a valuable and versatile player goes far beyond the skills you possess on the pitch. We aim to raise not just remarkable players, but outstanding individuals who will go on to achieve great things throughout their lives.

Player Centred

Each footballer is reviewed on the technical, social, physical and psychological so we can aim their learnings in the best direction.

“Behind every kick of the ball there has to be a thought.”

Dennis Bergkamp

Fostering Wisdom

Game understanding is key, from learning the different moments of play, the principles that rule it and the specific positional role.

“Football is played with your head. Your feet are just the tools.”

Andrea Pirlo

Building Character

The ways in which we carry ourselves both inside and outside the pitch should always resonate to the way we do it for the rest of our lives. 

“I learned all about life with a football at my feet”

Our Happy Parents!

"My son joined about 4 years ago, and it is fair to say that his life now revolves around EFA!
The coaches are dedicated and nurturing, and their support, and emphasis on sportsmanship and mutual respect - both on and off the pitch - is especially important to me...
His teammates have become his best friends, and the EFA like family, and I highly recommend them to anyone who has a child with an interest in football."

"I have been very impressed with how approachable all the coaches are. They think of players as individuals and the club is big enough to offer opportunities matching the level of ambition and work ethic each child has.EFA offered my son everything he needed during a critical period in his development as a player. This summer he was spotted by the coaches at Fulham FC and was invited to join their pre - Academy programme. This opportunity would not have been possible without the fantastic support offered by EFA. We are very grateful and will always cheer for our friends at EFA!"

"My son joined EFA 4 years ago. He participates in training sessions and matches in addition to his school team... The EFA coaches are serious but welcoming and supportive. They reflect good values and sportsmanship. Training sessions are intense, but with a sense of camaraderie and team play. My son has definitely improved his skills by playing with EFA. It has also exposed him to different styles of play. I would recommend the EFA to anyone looking for a high quality of play in a supportive atmosphere."
