Southampton FC spared no expense at their annual showcase this weekend, arranging for a mobile Under Armour shop, making their sport science staff available to monitor player agility testing at the Under Armour performance zone and bringing in a 15ft x 10ft outdoor HDTV to broadcast the weekends Premier League games. The showcase kicked off Friday night with a game between our 2006/2007 Boys Academy and the Southampton FC 2006/2007 Boys Academy.
During the tournament, Southampton’s Technical Staff watched all of the games and will select 30 players to take part in a 7-Day Player Development Residential Programme at their home facilities in England. The selected players will be announced at a later time.
