EduKick Manchester Plays Great Game Against Liverpool FC Foundation

EDUKICK MANCHESTER BY BILOTTAJOEY

This September, EduKick Manchester played a tough game against Liverpool FC Foundation.

As the game kicked off, Liverpool took the lead, using an aggressive play to take possession of the ball for the first 10 minutes. But EduKick wasn’t going to be outdone so easily. As soon as they found their flow, they took control of the ball and played a passing game, playing from the back end and maintaining possession.

The game remained at an impasse, and by half time, neither side had scored. As the second half started, EduKick kept their momentum going. However, they started to miss goals and opportunities as the game progressed. Liverpool grabbed at the chance and scored, pulling ahead 0-1.

At the end of the game, despite the EduKick team’s hard work, Liverpool came out ahead with a final score of 0-2.

"[It was] a disappointing result, we just need to have more confidence in that final third to get our shots off and have a go [sic]," said EduKick Manchester head coach Nigel Keogh. "We dominated that game and kept the ball well…If we'd have taken our chances, then we wouldn't have been in that position. All in all pleased with the effort and performance. They were trying to do the right things, some of the play was great, and we just need to make it pay in that final third; lots to work on for the next game and plenty of positives."

Ellesmere Academy Gets A Visit From Richie Wellens!

The players at Ellesmere EduKick Manchester Academy received a nice surprise earlier this September when Richie Wellens, the former Manchester United and Leicester city star, came to visit.

Wellens’ appearance was both entertaining and informative for the boys at the academy. These potential football stars got the chance to ask Richie Wellens their burning questions during a Q&A session with him.

The students received another surprise when they got to practice with Wellens on the field during their training session. Wellens personally coached them during the field session of his visit, helping the students refine their abilities and techniques.

Wellens currently resides as the first team coach at league two-side Oldham Athletic, which makes him a superb choice for helping these students reach their full potential!

“It’s always great to have these guest sessions at our academy, but especially having Richie involved is fantastic!" said EduKick Manchester Director Mick Brennan. “Richie works a lot with our players in Manchester, and has a great understanding of our ethos in the academy and brings genuine energy and great advice to the sessions he does. The players at Ellesmere would have been able to take a lot for the afternoon with him, and hopefully we can get him along again soon to see their progress. A massive thanks to Richie for the session and talking with the players."
