Our Story

In 2012, we decided to create a football academy that offered the opportunity for players to develop and grow within.

The mission was to create an environment that focused on performance. One that bridged the gap between grassroots and professional football, which allowed the players to feel a part of something meaningful, to provide an ethos that worked on the person, as well as the player, and so, The EDSV Academy was born.

In the beginning, we were a post 16-education programme for twenty-four boys. Now, we cater for around three-hundred boys and girls on a weekly basis, ranging from the ages five through to nineteen, and we would love to add you to the family.
