This august three „Football Academy School of Excellence” (FASE) players went to the UK for 5 day training visit.
Szymon Emche, Borys Sobstyl-Jałoszyński (both born in 2001) and Kryspin Leśniak (born in 2003) were training throughout the week with Bolton Wanderers and Crewe Alexandra academy. Our boys were given a chance to visit some of the england’s famous stadiums including „Anfield” and „Old Trafford”. FASE players were also learning about english football history almost every day.
Despite Bolton Wanderers and Crewe Alexandra are not competing in the Premier League, both of these academies are recognised as one of the best in England (category 2 and category 1).
In spring this year BWFC academy was clasified 4th in england for „producing players”, which is transfering youngsters from the academy to the first team in the last 3 years. Meanwhile Crewe Alexandra made a history when in april 2013 the whole starting eleven of the 1st team in a league game, was formed by the players from the club’s academy. This has happened first time in the modern history of english football.
FASE players were given an opportunty to visit UK as a reward for their hard work in training and commitment on and off the pitch last season. It was a great opportunity to challenge them and compare their skills in a different yet very competetive enviroment.
This visit is an offcial start of „Football Academy Management”, our players management agency and also a rebuilt of a long term partnership from the past between Football Academy and Bolton Wanderers.
We would like to thank both BWFC and Crewe Alexandra for their great hospitality and time spent with our players.
