Another busy week! We’ve had some of our players offered new jobs, Australian clubs requesting players for next season, free drinks for Alicante City FC supporters and more! Read on to find out how you can play football abroad as well!
Player requests coming from Australia
With many of the state leagues in Australia coming to an end, clubs across the country are now getting in touch with Soccer Smart to submit requests for players for next season. With Soccer Smart having a reputation for providing clubs in Australia’s state leagues with some of the best players, clubs are already rushing in to ask for players for 2020 even though this year’s season has just ended. Clubs in Australia would have seen Soccer Smart players like Brennan Joaquin and Curtis Bateson winning promotions and personal awards and want that same calibre of player again for next year.
Presentations at top UK colleges
This week, our consultants have been busy delivering presentations at some of the UK’s best colleges. Our presentations show students their next options after college if they want to stay in the sport. These options include earning a USA soccer scholarship, attending our Spanish soccer academy or going to play football in Australia.
With the new school year underway in the UK, students will be preparing for what comes next after college and a USA soccer scholarship is a popular choice for many with Soccer Smart’s proven track record of securing scholarships for players.
Alicante City FC players get new roles
Soccer Smart are always looking to improve the experience of its players at our partner club Alicante City FC, whether that be finding more stunning villas in Spain for the players to stay in or forming B and under-19 teams. The company has now gone one step further by offering two Alicante City FC players part-time jobs with Soccer Smart. The players will be undertaking a paid role with the company, helping with recruitment and other jobs. We are delighted to have been able to offer two players these additional responsibilities and with many of Soccer Smart’s staff members already former players who once seeked assistance to play football abroad, it’s always good to see the tradition continuing.
Alicante City FC offers free drinks to members
Sticking with our partner club Alicante City FC, the club is continuing to innovate and find unique ways to develop. The club already livestreams all its matches, has started a clothing line, has a unique range of first team kits and has players from all over the world but they have now added another string to their bow. The club is offering free beers all season to club members to boost support and morale around the club. It doesn’t get much better than watching football in the sun in Alicante with free beer, does it?
Soccer Smart Players Around the World #3
This week saw the third installment of our new blog series ‘Soccer Smart Players Around the World’ where we take a look at how our players around the world are getting on as they play football abroad. This week the blog included players having success on USA soccer scholarships, another who got selected by a professional team after impressing playing football in Canada and another who has earned promotion whilst playing football abroad in Australia. If you want to see how well the players we have helped have done then be sure to check out the blog for proven success stories.
Further UK football trial dates added
One of the best ways to play football abroad is by attending one of our UK football trials. Our open football trials are scheduled across the UK and can help you secure a club or USA soccer scholarship abroad. At our trials you will learn more about the different countries we can place you in, earn all important video footage of you in match action and there’s also the chance for you to be scouted to play football abroad on the day.
We have just added some new UK football trial dates for 2020 in Manchester, Liverpool, London, Birmingham and we’re also coming to Scotland next year! Make sure you book your place now as spaces are limited!
