Tommy invited to join AFC Bournemouth Academy

Joe, Pele, Jody & Franny congratulate Tommy at Toynbee
A Big Well Done to our Toynbee Academy U8 Player Tommy, who has been on trial with AFC Bournemouth for the last 6 weeks and on Saturday, played against their Academy U8's.

Tommy then got a call on Saturday afternoon, after impressing Matty Holmes, AFC Bournemouth Pre Academy Coach, saying they would like him to join their Academy, as of this week.

All of the Matt Le Tissier Natural Coaching Team are delighted for Tommy upon hearing this exciting news. He will now go and train with AFC Bournemouth every Tuesday and Thursday evening as well as attending our Academy on a Wednesday where sessions driven by Matt’s Philosophy, are headed up by Ex-Professionals Francis Benali & Pele amongst others under the guidance of Jody Rivers.

Tommy’s Mum, Nicky, had this to say about Tommy’s natural progression through Matt Le Tissier Natural Coaching:

“Tommy has loved Matt Le Tissier Natural Coaching since the day he started.  He initially had a Birthday Party with them which he loved and then joined their Monday Night Football Development Centre session with a couple of his friends.

After his second session, Pele & The Team moved him up into the Academy on a Wednesday night at Toynbee School and he has flourished from that moment on. He has really improved since he has worked with you guys so thank you for what you have set up and your amazing coaches, they are all so committed and also lovely guys who are all passionate about football and brilliant with the children. It is such impressive coaching.

Where I think MLTNC has been so very good is that they work hard on the children's weaknesses, so very quickly we saw a change in Tommy's game.  He loves going every week, always comes home with a big smile on his face and I genuinely feel like they are totally committed to each and every child. They have really helped to bring on my son's football and I only have positive things to say about MLTNC Coaching.”
