Congratulations to Former New Forest Football Academy player Alex, who has signed a TWO-YEAR contract with Southampton FC Academy until 2024!
Alex joined New Forest Football Academy when he was just 7 years old back in 2015, where he worked closely with Coach Jesse for several years! During his time at NFFA and his local grassroots team Highcliffe Hawks, Alex never gave up chasing his dream and has worked exceptionally hard to get to the position he is in today!
In 2022, Alex was offered a 8 week trial period with Southampton FC and after impressing Academy and Recruitment staff, Alex was then offered a contract until the end of the season. Alex will now play football at the highest level with Southampton FC for the next 2 years!
Congratulations Alex, everyone at New Forest is so proud of your achievements and you are a true inspiration to all of our Academy players to never stop chasing your dreams! Good luck in the season ahead and we look forward to catching up soon!
