Cosmo Soccer Academy partners with

West Bromwich Albion FC

WBA Badge

We are pleased to announce that Cosmo Soccer Academy have partnered with West Bromwich Albion FC, following the success of our coaching program that now has 82 players signed to professional youth academies.

The link also sees our Technical Director Russell Hullett leaving his recruitment position at Aston Villa FC, and joining the team at West Bromwich Albion as a Regional Recruitment Manager and also responsible for looking at new International Development/Recruitment.

The partnership will allow players in our program a fast track route into a highly ambitious Premier League club and an excellent Youth Academy that has already produced some top first team players including Premier League top scorer Saido Berahino.

We will be looking at recruiting players from our PARC ( Regional Pre Academy Recruitment Courses, National and international PARC courses) to attend attend trials with WBA.

Could you be the next Saido Berahino

West Bromwich Albion v Newcastle United - Premier League

Would you send your child to school to be taught by a lowly qualified or unqualified teacher? The answer is simple “NO WAY”

Well that’s what happens when you send your child to most soccer organisations for their early years experience.

In European and S. American academies it’s now been agreed and common practice at professional clubs that their most qualified and experienced coaches now work with the younger age groups which is the reverse to what happens at most English organisations but not here at Cosmo Soccer. The golden age of learning for children is 4 – 11 years.

The coaching program is based on the European academy system pioneered by Ajax FC and now adopted by Barcelona FC. Our academy staff all of which have either worked at, or currently work at pro academies conducts the sessions, ensuring your child gets the best development possible.

Due to this, it also means your child has the chance to get talent spotted and any talented players will be considered for trials at a professional club.
