It’s always a great moment when the latest recruits for the Soccer Smart Academy sign their academy contracts! Making it all official means we can crack on and give the academy lads the best possible training and treatment during their stay at our Spanish soccer academy in Alicante. After their fitness tests previously, the lads all deserved their moment signing their deals and hopefully they will all be signing deals with semi-professional and professional teams in the Spanish leagues soon!

The main academy villa in Alicante

The main academy villa in Alicante

With our Spanish football academy doing so well alongside our partner club Alicante City FC who are also flying at the moment it was important that the Soccer Smart family could continue to grow in Spain. With Alicante City FC also forming an under-23 team as well, it meant that more accomodation for our players was needed to go alongside the fantastic villa we already have next door to our academy pitch and gym.

We are delighted to announce that we have secured accomodation for all Alicante City players next season with our third property in Spain! Don’t forget, everyone who plays for our academy and Alicante City gets their accomodation and meals included and we are so happy to have been able to find another property to keep the Soccer Smart family growing!

Speaking of the academy, they had a superb victory on Wednesday night! Our Spanish soccer academy took on Jijona CD and recorded an amazing 9-1 victory, a record win for the academy! A fantastic result for all involved!

There was also another incredible goal scored by one of our academy lads this week. Make sure you check out this absolute rocket of a goal! Goalkeepers watch out when our academy is about!

Alicante City FC warming up before their friendly

On Thursday night, our partner club Alicante City were back in pre-season action, taking on CD Salesianos in a friendly. It was new coach Juanfri’s first game in charge and he made a flying start, leading the lads to a 3-2 win. A good performance by the Alicante City lads but more importantly, more pre-season minutes in the legs. They have three more friendlies before their first ever season in the sixth-tier starts.
