Parent Testimonial:

Photos of EduKick Manchester – Football & Education Courses“Thanks guys...It was a great year. As you know, we had 2 goals coming into this program: find a safe; hospitable; loving (I use that word because I felt everyone of your staff showed that to Quinn and myself when I visited); professional environment that would allow a young kid to learn/experience the ins and outs of becoming a professional football player.

Secondly, to secure some reputable relationships with UK teams and professionals that we could leverage for the 2014 season that would trend us down the path of scholarship football in a professional football setting.

In my opinion, I think both of those goals exceeded our expectations and I owe it to you guys for helping us find our way over this last year. I want to personally thank you for giving me the confidence that you always had Quinn's best interests in mind.

You gave me total peace of mind that he was always in a safe environment where he was surrounded by well-intentioned adults who allowed Quinn to mature at his own pace. Much success for the 2013-14 season and I look forward to chatting with you more in the near future.”
