Despite current restrictions on movement, the Ellesmere College Football Academy Players are still focused on their training goals - making the most of their time away from the game whilst at home.
The IH Ellesmere Football Academy players are demonstrating their commitment and determination to their training schedules as they continue to develop all aspects of their game. Each day over the last 2 weeks they have been working on a daily fitness workout; the players are using the daily Joe Wicks workouts - 7 Days of Sweat.
Another unique feature of the Football Academy programme is the relationship between the players and development programmes both on and off the pitch. As well as the termly scouting experiences, where the Academy will play and train in a showcase event in front of scouts from all over the UK, is the relationship with Soccer Assist - a successful platform for players going into the US Scholarship route - and they have now just become the first academy to integrate themselves into Footballers Global.
Footballers Global is an online platform, specifically for the football community, where each player can have a profile and keep updating it with comments, pictures and videos. The IH Ellesmere Football Academy have partnered with them to now allow all Academy players exclusive access to a premium listing, and, as a special bonus, the Footballers Global Director, impressed with the professionalism of the Academy, has said every one of the Ellesmere players who enlists, he will specifically highlight them to the scouts on the scouting section of the platform.
With being the FIRST academy to be given access to this, the players have been acting quickly so the scouts can see their profile. The platform is by definition a global one, so will include scouts from many clubs at many levels across the world of football.
One of the senior players in the Ellesmere Academy, Will Mullock - Year 13 - has taken up the challenge and used his time to produce a highlights package for the Footballers Global website.

With many scouts unable to be out watching live football, we hope this new platform will be a go-to for many of them, and a further opportunity for the Academy players to impress those watching what the IH Ellesmere Football Academy can offer and develop. We wish the players every success!
