A Pro Direct Academy player takes on a Manchester City Academy player


Players were selected from across all of our UK Pro:Direct Academy centres and brought together to join with lads from our Pro:Direct Academy Birmingham centre train at their base, ahead of their time on a big stage. Under the direction of UEFA A Licensed Head Coach Tom Hart, the lads focused on a massive test, to exceed their own expectations at one of the most famous clubs in the world. On the day of reckoning they enjoyed a tour of the prestigious Etihad Stadium and completed a thorough pre-match routine on the premium surface. They laced up in the very latest Nike boots and taking to the field ultimately put in a remarkable display to earn a draw - impressive, given that like an international squad they don't get to traing together every week. A proud day for Pro:Direct Academy.

We thank Manchester city for hosting us - a truly unforgettable experience for our U19s players at one of the most high profile stadiums in the world and a chance to test the ultimate in Nike boot technology. More about our 16-18 year olds Education Programmes and our Elite London Squad here
