What a week here at Pro Elite, from playing two professional academies, some amazing moments created for our youngest superstars and our teams doing us proudly with their performances at the weekend! Another week where we showed why we are the best football academy in the UK and we can’t wait to keep growing our amazing Pro Elite family!
We played Stevenage and Luton’s Academies!
This week we took two squads of fantastic young footballers to play against two professional academies! We played against Luton Town and Stevenage Borough FC! It was a great experience both times, we managed to beat Stevenage an incredible 15-3!!! It was an amazing performance and once certainly to be proud of. Then on Thursday evening, we went to play premier league academy, Luton Town, where we were very unlucky to concede in the last second to lose 5-4. Yet another amazing performance and a great opportunity to play against some of the country’s great young talent. Well done to you all!
This weekend at our indoor sessions was incredible. We had our youngest superstars working on their co-ordination and scoring goals, then our oldest indoor groups were learning how to compete with one another in a game scenario.
At our indoor sessions, we have one aim, to ensure that each child that walks in leaves with a smile on their face and a better overall person and footballer. Fun is such an important factor of our sessions as at such a young age, our coaches want to ensure everyone at the sessions has a great time! Every weekend we get feedback about how our little superstars talk about football all week and how excited they are! This is why we do it and why we love every second of it!
Development centre, our pathway from our indoor sessions to our teams. We have two development centres with a third one opening up in mid-November are very important to us. We want to ensure everyone who attends is prepared to be able to move into our teams when spaces become available. These sessions are in place to teach our superstars to compete, love the football and overall become better people and footballers. We love seeing so many superstars progressing from indoor sessions to development, then into the teams, it shows a real pathway for each child.
Gameweek 2, and what a weekend of football it was! In both our internal league age groups there was so many amazing moments during the games that were all very competitive! Check out the games of the week below!
GAME OF THE WEEK: Pro Elite Blazers 1-1 Pro Elite Panthers
This game was not one full of goals, but it was definitely full of quality! Both goalkeepers had games to remember making some incredible saves throughout. The game was very tight and came down to some moments of magic to get the goals. Our coaches who were watching were very impressed with what they saw and are implementing what they are learning in training!
GAME OF THE WEEK: Pro Elite Heat 2-3 Pro Elite Thunder
Another action-packed game which saw the Thunder get their first win of the season. An end-to-end game which came down to the wire. Coach Francis, the Thunder’s coach, told us about the fantastic volley that put the Thunder ahead in the game, he was very impressed. The Heat had many chances but just didn’t have their shooting boots on. What a game and we will be looking forward to this game in a few weeks.
Our Elite Teams yet again putting in superb performances in the WFL. Winning 8 games and in some cases scoring over 15 goals! We have started the season on fire and we will look to continue that throughout the season, hopefully ending up with some silverware! Check out the game of the week below!
Game Of The Week!
Pro Elite U16 3-2 Belsize U16
This was a game that had drama literally until the very last second. Our U16s managed by Coach Ali this weekend, got off to a great start taking an early 1-0 lead. We were playing very well but just couldn’t finish our chances, then before you know it we were 2-1 down. When it came to the last 10 minutes, we were putting them under so much pressure. Then we win a penalty late on to make it 2-2 and we score! Then momentum kicked in and we managed to score with the very last kick of the game! SCENES. Well done to the boys to continue their good start to the season!
Check out one of our U16s mic’d up at a training session recently here!
We can’t wait for another fantastic week here at Pro Elite! We hope to see you over the course of the week!
