Soccer Elite FA are delighted to announce we will be running a brand new academy at the fantastic new facilities at Chatham Town FC!

SEFA are an independent football academy based in Kent, offering professional training and expert coaching with individual player development at the forefront of our vision. Our sessions run alongside a player’s club commitments, where our aim is to compliment and develop players to improve their performance on the weekend for their club teams.

We will be running a FREE trial session for players aged between U12 – U16 in the 2019/20 season as we look to build elite training groups for the season ahead. We would like to invite all players from the KYL to come and taste what it’s like to participate in a SEFA academy session, and work with some of the leading coaches in the South East.

Coaches on the day will be:

Kieran Culleton (SEFA Head of Academies & current Charlton Athletic coach)

Rich Radbourne (SEFA Managing Director & Crystal Palace)

Jay Saunders (ex Maidstone United manager & current Margate manager)

Carl Laraman (ex Arsenal coach for over 25 years)

Details for the trial session are:

DATE: Friday 30th August 2019

VENUE: Bauvill Stadium, Maidstone Road, Chatham, ME4 6ES

TIME: 10.00am – 12.00pm
