About Coach - Ali Mustafa
Head Football Coach
Ali is a UEFA qualified coach who also plays semi-professionally. Ali looks after the whole Academy, regularly coaching the U9’s right through to the 16’s. When talking, he compares himself to Pep Guardiola (only better looking) and you’ll regularly hear him blowing his whistle to stop the session whenever one of his players decides to go long. He’s great at building good relationships with his players and believes all footballers, regardless of position, should learn to be comfortable on the ball with both feet. He suffered a major knee injury last year which has allowed him to focus on his coaching.

Middle Elite Phase 2 (6 – 10 years)
Phase 2 is where the coaches focus on teaching and fine tuning the technical attributes of the players and where those selected can start playing for the development teams here. The players will start to learn more about whats needed to become a well rounded footballer, with the coaches focusing on balance, control and skill. All players spend the majority of each session with their own football, maximising their touches on the ball. Development will be seen quickly and those selected will be given the chance to play in tournaments/games against high level opposition, giving them every opportunity to shine. If they are willing to learn, your child will be in an environment that allows them to flourish and be on their way to fulfilling their potential. They will also have their social and personal skills developed, with friendships being built along the way.
