I have played NPL football since I was 12 years old playing for Hume City FC. I live in the Northern suburbs and I came across the Academy through a good family friend who recommended E.F.D.A.
My dad drove me there on a Saturday and we met the Academy coaches. They made me feel very welcomed and I decided to join. The sessions at the Academy are very structured and technical which helped me to improve my game.
I was then invited to participate in the E.F.D.A 2018 Holland / Italy Tour, playing against professional teams like Vitesse Arnhem U15, SC Heerenveen Football Club U15 and also against Perugia Calcio u16 (Italy) and these memorable experiences
have made a difference to my game and desire to play at a top level. Today I play for Melbourne City FC - NPL Academy and I thank E.F.D.A for giving me the opportunity and to help me with extra sessions as well as keeping my dreams to play at the highest level.
