Well done to josh Hannah from our U14 DDSL prem team who was invited to The Global Coerver Coaching Youth Football Partnership with SL Benfica.

SL Benfica who in 2015 were voted in Dubai as The Worlds Best Youth Football Academy can boast 167 pro players and 50 being Internationalist. They can also boast in developing top players such as Renato of the Portuguese National A team at the age of 18.

Coerver Coaching are proud to announce this week that Josh Hannah and Connor Presley won the top awards in Benfica. The awards are Mystique and Eusebio !

Josh winning Eusebio means he will now return as an SL Benfica 2003 player training with the 2003 squad later this year. Josh has been on the Coerver programme from the age of 6 working with Coerver Ireland. Whilst Connor of Coerver Texas USA is through our support and programmes playing his football here in Portugal.

Director of Coerver Portugal & Scotland Gordon Craig said

“The partnership with SL Benfica has been a perfect opportunity for our Coerver kids to show what they can do. Whilst testing themselves in a high performance environment and being trained at a top club . The coaches at SL Benfica are all the top youth team coaches. The fact we are working closely both on and of the field has been a great opportunity for Coerver and SL Benfica.”
