Harry Baldry – Posh

http://yodiamondteam.com/brian-mccoys-blog-build-yoli-marketing-plan/ Unfortunately since my last article, I’ve been injury struck, so I haven’t had any game time. But reflecting on my first year, it was quite patchy and my form wasn’t particularly great. I’m confident in my ability, but I didn’t have much game time and when I did play, I’d play a few games then be on the bench again, so I found it difficult to keep my consistency. Also, during my first year, adapting to the physicality of the [...]

Ewan Fieldhouse – An Update

I’m almost 5 months into the first year of my scholarship and it’s absolutely flown by! It’s been really hard work and physical demanding.

Andrea Borg – Peterborough United

As a 16 year old coming from Malta, I was really excited at the thought of becoming a professional footballer. Being 5 months in, it’s been great but it’s been super tough and a hard challenge coming from a country that doesn’t take football seriously.  As I’m only 16, moving to a different country to play professional football is quite daunting but exciting, but I’ve settled in now and I do really miss my family now. Layton, my teammate and [...]

It’s very but satisfying when you see improvements in [...]

As a centre back, I would describe myself a ball playing defender and if I were to compare myself to a professional player, I’d say I have a similarity to Jan Vertonghen. [...]

Lewis Elsom, Goalkeeper
