FC Battersea is a new football club based around excellence and family that will have a partnership with Fulham Football Club in order to find the next generation of talent.
The club acts as a bridge between grass roots and academies as it offers gifted South London players the chance to train twice a week as well as coaching on finance, social media, psychology, community and nutrition.
This is a ‘non for profit’ organisation with excellent funding and backing, as the club aims to grow from an Under-12 team right through to senior level.
The side was established by Battersea parent Jon De Maria, alongside experienced UEFA qualified coaches with the core value of family. De Maria commented ahead of the first trials: “We are looking for tomorrow’s stars. To be inspired by their talent. Are the local kids up for the challenge? Sign up for the trials and find out.”
FC Battersea will be holding trials at Battersea Park on Saturday 29th June from 11:30am. They are seeking U12 boys who are passionate about the game. For more information visit www.fcbattersea.com.
