“This year has been a really good experience. The school, coaching, staff, facilities and now the new personal specification model have all been excellent. We are supported by both teachers and coaches educationally and on the football front which gives us a good balance as young men career-seeking. If someone is serious about their football this is the place to be. Having been involved with many other ‘clubs’ it is clear to me that the standard of coaching at Unique FA is head and shoulders above many of them”
