KicKStart Football Academy

It has been a pleasure and our privilege to provide our services to the KicKStart academy over the last few months.  This is the second year we have worked with Elaine Pritchard and Malc Jones to provide coverage of the end of season finals at Field Mill and Pride Park and then a series of 8 Presentation awards for boys and girls in age groups ranging from Under 7 up to under 11.

The presentation are the culmination of the 2010-11 playing season, with individual participation trophy’s for each and every player and their team managers, along with a host of team, individual and special awards.  The presentations were made by Steve Hodge, Steve Chettle, Kenny Burns and Rob Kozluk.  There was a special presentation by video link from the leagues’ president Kris Commons where the recipient of the Lola Grace Commons award for under 7’s girl of the season went to Georgia Bannister.

Below are just two of the many award winners.

Under 10's Division 1 Player of the season

Niamh Cashin under 11’s player of the season

The presentations are extremely well organised and choreographed which is indicative of the KicKStart organisation as a whole, and indeed because of its quality it is the first league in Nottinghamshire to attain the FA Charter Standard League accolade.
