The Kings Academy Is Now Open For Business
Friday 26th June 2015 saw the vision of the late John King become a reality.
Holbeach United Youth Football now have a home to call their own & what a home it is. Sitting on the land donated by the King family, the Trustees and Committee members of The Holbeach United Community Sports Academy have worked tirelessly to turn a dream in to a reality.
After numerous meetings with planners, councillors, builders, various funding commissions, the FA, the local Fa and with all the Holbeach United Youth Managers, Coaches and Assistants, a project that started building 3 years ago is finally open.
Gathered on Friday night to cut the ribbon were the people responsible for the Kings Academy, these included Councillor Nick Worth, Ashley King, Trustees – Phillip Barnes (Chairman), Stuart Clark (Vice Chairman), Chris Stebbings and Neal Collinshaw, the committee members and finally the players and parents. Absent on Friday night was Trustee member Des Ford.
Also present was Danny Andrew, Fleetwood Town player, a product of Holbeach United youth football.
The ribbon on the building was cut by Ex Professional Chris Sutton who was very impressed with what has been delivered for the youth teams at Holbeach United.
