This story is incredible! Thank you to Elliott’s parents for sharing this with us last week!
“Over summer, Elliott took part in a lengthy trial with Chelsea Foundation for a place in their 2021-2022 Advanced Centre U9 squad.
Over 700 players trialled for this and Elliott has been offered one of the 120 spaces across the 8 age range squads in the U9s! He performed so well in the trial, and we are so proud of him as due to his learning difficulties, nothing comes easy to him.
This will be a great experience for him as he will be taking part in numerous formal JPL fixtures against other Premier League and Football League clubs.
Working with the M.R.F.A. since last season has definitely improved Elliott, and we’re so excited training has resumed. He had an outstanding year with his Sunday team too, so he’s absolutely buzzing at the moment!”️
Incredible effort and what an achievement, Elliott! Massive well done!
