Academy sessions return

Soccer Elite FA’s Academy sessions returned on Wednesday at the Bauvill Stadium, Chatham.

Training resumed at our Medway centre following the end of lockdown on the morning of December 2.

We now look forward to the resumption of our Elite tier sessions on Friday at the Bauvill and our Maidstone – based sessions on Monday at K Sports Cobdown.

Head of Academies Kieran Culleton said after Wednesday’s session: “It was great to return and we now look forward to providing our players with a few weeks of sessions heading into Christmas.

“It was really pleasing to see the players train at the same level we saw prior to this lockdown, with excellent energy and application show throughout the sessions.

“Lastly, a massive thank-you goes to our parents for being so co-operative with the new safety measures that have been put in place.”
