About James Collins Football Academy
James Collins Football Academy is a new and exciting school that provides professional football coaching for grassroots and elite players. The Academy was started by Premier League player James Collins who played for West Ham Utd, Aston Villa and was a Welsh International.
James started his career at the age of 16 at Cardiff City FC in November 2000 before joining Premier League side West Ham Utd. Whilst there he played with the likes of Teddy Sheringham, Mark Noble and Joe Cole before joining Aston Villa. James also played for Wales where he earned 51 caps and enjoyed playing alongside the likes of Ryan Giggs, Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale and against some stunning internationals such as Ronaldo, Manuel Neuer and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Now, having played in the Premier League and at International level James is looking to pass on his considerable knowledge of the game within his football academy. His aim is to provide a fun environment that caters for all playing abilities where girls and boys can enjoy the beautiful game and also improve. We offer fun, football based, holiday camps, Futsal and GK sessions. For those who are looking to take that next step and follow in the footsteps of James Collins we can offer 1-2-1 coaching with the possibilities of trials for semi-pro and pro clubs.
Our camps run during the holidays and there is the chance to win fantastic prizes such as tickets to League games, signed shirts and you will also have the chance to meet some great professional footballers as well.
