As a grassroots club it is important for the us to continue to collaborate with the FA and established clubs on a local and national basis. As we collaborate we learn and grow but also there is an opportunity to showcase ourselves and the value our club brings to the community.
During last Sunday’s training session (19 Jan) we welcomed Joe Doyle from Watford FC Academy Recruitment and shared with him our club DNA as he walked through the tiers in training mode.
Recently we have been in talks with Watford FC to become a partner club with the aim to showcasing our talent and the opportunity for our boys to potentially join their development squads. Initially Watford FC coaches will attend our league matches and assess our progress and review the SJFA talent.
We will continue our discussions with Watford FC and the merits of becoming a partner club with them.
