To all the team who’ve helped with the football camp at Herts & Essex over the last two days – thank you!

Tom has had a great time, made new friends and hasn’t stopped talking about it. You made his day by presenting him with the Mark Noble shirt (especially as he’s a West Ham season ticket holder) – and when the coach said he would go a long way and has to be scouted Tom was made up. See attached photo where Tom’s smile says it all.

Please tell James we hope to bump into him in Stortford sometime to grab a photo and hear his advice for how best to get scouted!

Have a relaxing weekend and thanks again.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your academy this week and everyone involved in organising it.
Holly has a fantastic time, and everything you did was much appreciated! Especially your special guest on Thursday! 😉
She will definitely be going to any future camps you have planned!

Thanks again

Dear James and team

Thank you so much for the football camp days that Jack and Joe attended recently alongside their friends Thomas and Toby.  I came in from work on Wednesday and they were absolutely buzzing from the days and these boys are hard task masters.  They said the coaching was way better than anything they’d had before and they loved the selfies and boot signings.  Thank you so much.  I would definitely book again.  They also mentioned that there were boys in Thomas and Theo’s reception class and how patient the coaches were with the small people and said I should send their brothers along!

Kind Regard

Hi James

I wanted to take the time to say a HUGE THANK you to you and all the coaches at Leventhorpe School last week (half term) Jack rarely attends any venue where he doesn’t know anyone, I was fortunate to have won the competition on facebook and never thought in my wildest dreams I would win this amazing experience for Jack, as soon as he knew it was your academy, his fears of not knowing anyone went out the window and his confidence was beaming, for that I thank you very much for. I thought the organisation of the camp was superb, especially with the barcode wrist bands.

Jack has come away with new skills, to which he reminds everyday what he can now achieve. The most amazing experience for him to not only meet you, but to meet one of his idols in Declan Rice – something he will never forget. You should be proud of yourself and whole team (I know we are)

Thanks again so much – looking forward to the next time.

Many thanks

Zoe (Jack Winchesters Mum)
