Academy Director speaks to us

On Tuesday 15th May, M.R.F.A., took a selection of U9 players to play against Leyton Orient’s Academy. A lovely Spring evening that had plenty of excitement and goals from both sides.

To add to the excitement the fixture was played inside the East London clubs first team stadium. A great experience for all involved. We decided to catch up with Academy Director, Michael, as he gave us his thoughts on the fixture and an insight in to why games like these are important.

Watch the full video over on our YouTube channel.
