We need a home win!

The football stars of the future are looking for a home where they can learn their craft and, maybe, line up for England in the Euros of the future.

Alex Peek set up the Future Ballers Academy in 2021 to provide one-to-one technical football coaching for youngsters.

He has been holding sessions wherever they are needed but is looking for somewhere in the Norwich area to set up a permanent base.

“I studied sport at college and then moved to uni in Southampton and completed my BA Hons in football studies,” said Alex, who is 25.

“I then moved to America and coached for a year out there. I moved to Norwich in September last year and decided to really go for it with my coaching – I have now got busy enough to go full-time.”

What Alex is hoping for is a private venue where he can hold his sessions between 4pm and 8pm every day.

“We are looking for a private grass pitch and toilet facilities. We can provide the equipment, so that’s not essential,” he said.

As well as the training, Alex offers Mini-Ballers sessions for two to four-olds as a fun introduction to the game.
