2001 Boys Jet-Setting

This summer, the Clay County Soccer Club’s 2001 boys will be heading to Brighton, England for their Pre-Season. The team will be staying with the English Premier League Club for 10 days, playing and training against their Academy teams. 

Furthermore, the boys will spend the majority of their time at Brighton & Hove Albion FC’s new state-of-the-art training and teaching facility which is a Category One status training centre under the Premier League’s Elite Player Performance Plan. 

The facility includes 11 full and half size natural grass and artificial pitches, plus a half size covered indoor pitch, ensuring playing facilities are accessible and playable throughout the seasons. 

The distinctive Y-shaped building provides secure accommodation wings for the club’s professional squads and academy youth teams, plus a separate wing for common recreation, medical treatment and media facilities and gymnasium. 

Here is what Executive Director, Matt Hollyoak had to say about the trip; “This is a fantastic opportunity for both players and coaches. We will be working closely with the Brighton sta. and players to create a very special event for everyone”, “This opportunity came about through our key partners WeGotSoccer and Nike and this trip is like a dry run for us. If it goes as well as we expect, we will be expanding the opportunity club-wide to all CCSC players”. 

It will not be all work for the boys. They will be watching several Premier League games and exploring the best England has to offer. Safe travels Gentlemen!
