2 more Elites players go on trial with professional Academies!

NCF Elites are delighted to announce that following last week’s signing of Rhys on a two year contract to QPR U13s, two more of our NCF Elite players are going on trial with pro Academies.

  1. U13s player James Unwin is undergoing trials with Norwich FC. James an uncompromising centre back, strong in the tackle, pacey, reads the game well and can play out from the back. James has a great attitude towards learning and we wish him all the best with his trial period.
  2. U14s player William Hadley is having trials with Charlton Athletic. William is a tenacious left footed player, good on the ball with a great range of passing with the ability to score goals. William has a burning desire to keep on developing and deserves this opportunity with Norwich City. Good luck.

NCF Elites manager Nick Cook said ‘ I am delighted for both these boys, they continue to work extremley hard at their game and have been duely rewarded with their opportunities’.

NCFootball in the last 8 years have had 36 players sign for Academies and two more now on trial our success story just keeps growing.

Elites Player Rhys signs for QPR

NCF Elites U13s player Rhys Quilley tonight received a two year Academy contract from Queens Park Rangers. Rhys who recently returned from the NCF Elites tour to the Welsh International Cup where he was instrumental in helping the Elites squad to reach the final only to be beaten by Columbian side Alcetta 1 nil in the final.


On Rhys’s return he continued his trial period with QPR and we are delighted that they have offered him a contract. Rhys possess great ability on the ball with a good range of passing and great engine to get up and down the pitch.


NCF Elites Manaager Nick Cook said ‘I am delighted for Rhys, he’s a talented player, a smashing  lad with a real appetite for learning and developing his game and we wish him all the best in his time with QPR.’

NCFDC update

Can I thank you all for the clapping and cheering at the couple of mini presentations we done at the NCFDC last week, this was for those players who were away on our final session before Christmas.
Another exciting week at the NCFDC saw the normal thrills and spills of goal mouth action, last ditch tackles and questions to whether goal line technology should be brought in to the NCFDC!!
This week I have to mention the two girls within the group, Esher & Ellee, both quick & athletic and show no fear in mixing it up with the boys on the pitch, fearless in the tackle and both showing real good qualities on the ball! Well done girls keep it going!
Another impressive week by Connor in only his second week, showing a good understanding of the game and technically looking very assured for his age ……… just one of the great addition to the NCFDC squad in the January transfer window!
Second session we focused a little on the dynamics of a side foot pass during the training and allowed a longer match to enable the group to bring this in to their match play and encourage & develop their understanding of team play. At times some fantastic moves by the group involving four and five passes! As your all aware the balance is getting the group to play as a team without losing that individual flair and with our very own little Messi (Theo) on the pitch that’s never going to happen, as the football saying goes ‘he lifts bums of seats’ with his weaving runs …… great to see! Really pleasing to see James’s confidence continually growing and proved to be a natural in the passing work which he also took out in to the match play! I will apologise in advance because if the NCFDC players continue to entertain us by playing with this amount of skill, determination & development I will have to charge an admission fee as the players fan base is growing on a weekly basis!! <wlEmoticon-winkingsmile[1].png>
We look forward to seeing you all next week!
