March 26th, 2019 will surely go down as an unforgettable day for everyone involved.
In association with Nike and Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion FC, we held an event at Brighton FC’s training ground, the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre.
The all-day event included 4 grassroots football teams and 7 Brighton first team men’s and women’s players.
The day consisted of a range of coaching drills, Q&A sessions and an all-around interaction and engagement with Premier League football players.

The day was split into the morning which included 2 boys teams attending training sessions led by Brighton & Hove Albion FC Men’s: Dutch Striker Jürgen Locadia, Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and Captain Bruno.
In the afternoon 2 girls teams had another range of training sessions led by Brighton & Hove Albion FC Women’s first team players: England Striker Ellie Brazil, Goalkeeper Marie Hourihan and Captain Danielle Buet.
With each player leading their own individual sessions, each of the grassroots teams had the chance to pick the brains of Premier league players who were more than happy to pass on knowledge and tips to the players during and following the sessions.
