EduKick Students Meet League Founders

Soccer ClubsEdukick Manchester coaches, staff and student-players are delighted to form a new partnership with Accrington Stanley FC.

Through friend of EduKick International, Dave Bailey, Edukick Manchester has formed a great link to the professional football club, allowing Edukick Manchester student-players to get a fantastic view into the world of English football.

Accrington Stanley FC is one of the founding members of the football league!

In fact, Accrington Stanley, one of only 12 clubs to form the football league, in 1888, has had a tough time throughout history. After a dramatic reformation of the club, in 1968, they established themselves firmly in English football.

From there they started to move up through the local non-league setup to the national non-league setup.

Then, in 2005, they won promotion back into the football league where they have been ever since. Now known as ‘The club that will never die’ Accrington Stanley is a traditional and local football club, but now with grand and glorious ideas to progress in football.

Accrington Stanley coaches will be delivering guest sessions to the Edukick Manchester players. Student-players will also have the opportunity for visits to the ground to watch the first team games, fantastic guest speakers from the club, and even more possibilities for those who show potential to train and trial with the club.

Throughout the season, Edukick Manchester will play the Accrington Stanley Academy teams too, which is a great opportunity for Head of Recruitment Dave Bailey to watch the Edukick players first hand.

Edukick & Accrington Stanley had their first success in the partnership, with Lawrence Hanna of Edukick Manchester being invited to Accrington to train with the Academy and showcase to the coaches what he can do. Hopefully later this month, Lawrence will spend time at Accrington to try to kick start his football career.
