On Wednesday 9th January, FCV Academy took part in a closed-door U19 tournament which was hosted at St George’s Park.

Officiated by Professional Game Match Officials Limited’s highest level match officials, the tournament consisted of four teams from across the country playing in a series of matches played over two 25-minute halves. FCV Academy turned heads in reaching the final, just falling short in a close game.

Academy Manager Grant Brown, who led the team at the Football Association’s national football centre, was pleased to give the players the opportunity to take part in such an event. “The competition was competitive, both very well organised and officiated by PGMOL, giving the academy players the opportunity to showcase their abilities. The facilities at St. Georges Park were 1st class and the players and staff were very well looked after – overall it was a fantastic experience for all involved” he said.
