Oscar signs for Southampton FC Academy U9's

Matt & all the Coaching Team would like to say a massive Well Done to Oscar, who becomes the 18th MLTNC Family member in four years to join a Professional Academy after signing a contract with Category One classed Southampton FC.

Oscar joined Matt Le Tissier Natural Coaching right from the start, in the 2012/2013 season, attending our Toynbee Academy on a Wednesday night as well as our Football Clubs at his School & our Half Term Holiday Soccer Schools at Wyvern College, Fair Oak.

Being comfortable with the ball on either foot, Oscar was spotted showcasing his Natural ability playing for his team on a Sunday. After being invited in to train with the Southampton FC Academy since Under 7s, he has this week signed for the Under 9's after impressing.

During Oscar's time with us, our Coaches have held specialist 1 to 1 sessions with him. Most recently being Sam Phillips, who helped Oscar to work on specific homework tasks set by Saints during his trial period.

Oscar's Mum, Caroline, had this to say:

"When Steve Phillips first invited Oscar to attend MLT 3 years ago we were all so excited. Over this time MLT has given Oscar a great environment in which to learn and develop new skills and get a good understanding of the game.

He has a great relationship with the coaches and they have got to know him well through the academy, clubs and 1-2-1 Coaching. MLT offered Oscar a great foundation to begin his football journey."

Congratulations once again Oscar, keep up the great work & keep playing with that big cheesy smile! 😀
