“I have been using Birlow Knights Academy Head Coach Steve Bird for some years now and he has progressed my son from the grassroots game to having signed another 2 year contract with Blackpool FC.  I can go to him with the details of any problematic area of Alex’s game and within weeks it’s been corrected.  The knowledge he has of the game and the smallest of changes he makes to their techniques make all the difference.  He has also worked tirelessly with my daughter Megan again progressing her from the grassroots game to professional club as a goalkeeper.  Indeed I directly attribute the work done with Megan on SAQ and overall fitness on her gaining a place in the U15’s England team.  I cannot recommend Birlow Knights Academy enough and I know Steve would work just as tirelessly with any player sent to him for 1-2-1 coaching, Development Sessions, SAQ sessions or on his School Holiday Soccer Camps.  If your child is worth investing in then contact Steve!”

“Jack has now been attending weekly sessions with Steve at Birlow Knights Academy for just over 3 years, his progression and self confidence has grown immensely with Jack and Steve having built up a strong relationship.  Jack will talk to Steve about anything and everything and often confides in him when school is getting him down or even just to find out what he should get me for mothers day.  His caring nature makes him the ideal person to work with anyone who has confidence issues and his constant praise and reassurance lends well to a great enjoyable learning environment.  Jack looks forward to his weekly sessions with Steve and always leaves with a smile on his face even when he had arrived with a frown.  Jack also attends every School Holiday Camp Birlow Knights Academy put on and enjoys the no pressure environment the coaches create for the players.  The players are encouraged to experiment within the game and the fun way in which it is taught brings out the best in the players.  Thoroughly recommended, you’d be daft to send your child anywhere else.”

“I first took my son Camron to one of the Birlow Knights Academy Soccer Camps early in 2012 on the recommendation of his club coach to get him some extra practice as he had been struggling in matches.  After staying to watch Steve and his coaches at work it quickly made me realise just how much they had to offer.  After speaking to Steve at the end of the first day he recommended that I look at doing some extra work with Cam on his balance and co-ordination, I took him up on this offer and have not looked back since.  Cam has gone from a player who spent most of his time on the Sub’s bench to a regular starter of each game.  I’ve recommended Steve to a few parents and I can see the difference in their child’s ability and performance after only a short period of time.”
