Stockton Town FC U6s, 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s had a really memorable day when they were invited to the prestigious Liverpool FC Academy to play against high calibre opponents from their Professional Youth Academy. An experience that no one will ever forget and some of the boys can now say they have scored v Liverpool FC.
Liverpool were very welcoming and made us all feel very relaxed and allowed us to have a look around the facility and even got to go into main office where all the full time staff work.
Club football development officer Paul Midgley had this to say “The boys did themselves and the club very proud today, and every game was at least a contest but they also got to see what a professional club runs like and how talented their players are. Our lads were tremendous and showed great character and moments of outstanding skill and ability, with one coach from Liverpool been really impressed with numerous Stockton players. I would like to personally thank Liverpool FC for making us feel welcome and allowing the lads this fantastic opportunity.”
