Liam Kitching has made his first appearance for Leeds United first team at the age of 16. Liam and Robbie Gotts were selected for the first team bench in a behind closed doors game v Sheffield this week. Liam came on with 15 minutes to go and the Leeds Manager, Gary Monk, told him how pleased he was with the way Liam had played.
The boys both spent several years at the Soccer School in our foundation phase and we wish them every success.
Last week we received some fantastic news, one of our FDS Harrogate players received his scholarship offer from a Grade One Academy/Premier League Club. This young man will be the first player from FDS Harrogate to win a scholarship at a Grade one club. Congratulations to him, his parents and all who have worked with him. The player in question joined our Soccer School the day of his 5th birthday and has spent 10 years training with us. For the last 2 years he joined our elite individual training partner, Integer and we look forward to following his developments at his professional club.
2016 has been an incredible year for FDS Harrogate with 10 players being offered scholarships by their respective professional clubs.
