BN Soccer Academy has returned from a successful week-long tour of the United Kingdom which they were hosted by Football CV Academy with three players impressing the UK scouts.

Director of BN Soccer Academy Bhekimpilo Nyoni said the tour was very successful and an eye-opener to some of the 11 players he took to the UK for a week-long training camp and were part of 44 players from all over the world at the training camp.

BN Soccer Academy struck a deal with Football CV Academy in the UK that saw top English academy club managers coming to Zimbabwe to conduct training clinics, including Football CV Academy.

The visit was reciprocal and the second following the first in 2017 when only four boys toured the UK.

During the awards ceremony held at the end of training camp hard-working Munashe Chakuchichi was voted by 44 players for the top award of the players’ player award.

Nyoni said UK and European scouts commended three Zimbabwean players for their technical ability and skills after they distinguished themselves during the training camp.
“Youngsters learnt a lot about the being a professional football player and are now keen to follow the career path after this annual event where Football CV Academy try and improve the technical and skill aspect of these youngsters,” said Nyoni.

BN Soccer Academy holds regular intensive soccer holiday clinics at Belgravia Sports Club for the six -to-18-years age group.

The academy has produced some outstanding players include Elijah Soko who is now in the United States of America on a full scholarship, and Musa Kolombo, one of the products, went to Spain.

BN Soccer Academy is now known as the home of soccer development with young players some under 6 years to open age groups having been brought up there.

With practice sessions well catered for by experienced coaches, and through overseas links, players are being given exposure to international scouts.
