Afewee Football Academy is widely renowned in the sport as an extraordinary incubator of talent. Seldom has so small a grassroots coaching organisation achieved so much success. Five of its alumni have played in Premier league first teams. One currently plays for England – Nathaniel Clyne. In addition, the Academy boasts 30 players in the professional game or in academies, including one in every league in the country and one in every London-based Premier league club.
Young boys and girls are encouraged from the earliest age to develop individual skills on the ball and to let their personality be expressed in their style of play. This gives our young athletes their distinctive flair, confidence, hunger and qualities which draw them to the attention of the academies.
Discipline and self-belief are key for a youngster’s progression within the game and their successful navigation through life’s challenges. Afewee’s methods are rigorous and demanding. Gaining the trust and respect of these often spirited youngsters is central to keeping them on track. Afewee expects our athletes to give of their best. Many rise to the challenge because they know that the tough Afewee regime is underpinned by understanding of the problems and pitfalls they face and a passionate commitment to helping overcome them.
If Brixton’s young footballers dare to dream, Afewee will put its heart and soul into helping to make those dreams come true.
