The development of young players in this country is of the utmost importance right from grassroots level through to professional academies. Unique Football Academy prioritises the development of each young player within their set-up. They are passionate about the progression of their young players. The bottom line is any young player who joins the Unique academy will become a better player and I would highly recommend attending”.

“I worked with Jamie at Crystal Palace and took so much personally from working alongside him. His attention to detail and determination to improve every single player was a privilege to see. 

Jamie’s programme at Unique FA is exactly what young players need to improve technically and tactically, a programme I would recommend to any young player who has a desire to improve. 

It is great to see Jamie and his programme doing well, with lots of players being signed by professional academies. I wish him all the best going forward. Good luck mate”.

“I first met Jamie when we worked together at Crystal Palace's Academy and in recent years have crossed paths with Jamie many times given his role with the Premier League and mine with the FA. Jamie is an outstanding coach, he has excellent attention to detail and an engaging style that footballers can relate to.

Having seen Unique FA academy at close hand Jamie and his team continue to develop young players, its one of the leading independent academies in the industry with a fantastic reputation for unearthing and developing talent.Unique FA is always forward thinking and leads the way introducing genuine performance analysis into their training programmes. Players that attend Unique FA will, i have no doubt develop and improve in an environment that rivals many professional football club academies in my opinion”.

Trevor Bumstead - Arsenal FC U16s Head Coach


“Having worked with Jamie Waller for nearly 2 years when I was the Lead Youth Development Phase Coach at the West ham United Academy, Jamie proved to be an enthusiastic, forward thinking coach who had an holistic approach to developing each player he worked with. Jamie’s sessions were always well organised, progressive and fun which is why I am happy promoting the Unique FA Academy.

More recently i have worked with Jamie to secure three Unique Academy players scholarships in the USA offering them the chance to continue their playing career whilst combining further education. As Head coach of the U16s at Arsenal FC I look forward to maintaining a relationship with Unique FA in the future and commend them on the standards they maintain and players they continue to develop”.
