As the UK Football Finder brand continues to grow, with the 1st team sitting 4 points clear at the top of the league in their debut season and the Elite Squad supplying players to Professional sides all over the country, Nationwide Clubs have been emphatic in their praise of what UKFF is trying to achieve.
Speaking to the UKFF Executive Chairman, Adam Parry, Scouting Representatives of the following clubs stated:
Charlton: ‘We are amazed at the depth of talent at UK Football Finder’s disposal, and will be checking on the progress of Bradley Diallo ( pictured playing for Oldham last season) and Jerome Kinsonga from Lille in particular.’
Brentford: ‘It is amazing how many good players manage to slip through the net, and UK Football Finder have certainly caught a lot of good players in their net who will definitely interest us and other League sides.’
Dagenham & Redbridge: ‘UK Football Finder deserve a great deal of credit for helping young players find new clubs. Often, players released by clubs (including our own) can often struggle to get a new side and they can drift away feeling isolated. Just because a player is released at 18 does not mean it’s the end of the world for him, and schemes like UK Football Finder are wonderfulin helping these players get back on course.’
Leyton Orient: ‘We will definitely monitor the players mentioned to us, as they sound like fantastic players who could benefit us. We are taking more players in from non-league and we never turn down the chance to sign a potential future star. Plus we are offering (with Swindon Town) the chance for a player to win a pro-contract with Samsung.
Southend United: ‘The UK Football Finder project is one that is solid and very reputable. We admire the good work they do and will look at who they have playing for them and discuss if they can be of merit to Southend United Football Club.’
In response, Ewemade Orobator UKFF Director of Football added: ” This continues to be an amazing and humbling endorsement of what we are trying to achieve. All we can do is give the opportunity and the players on each ocassion they play must step up to the mark and keep themselves in the window of opportunity. It is just awesome that clubs are supporting what we are striving for.”
