FootballCV Testimonials

The following testimonials are from FootballCV members and their families following trials events held by FootballCV.

Manchester City

"The two trials George attended organised by FootballCV, at Northwich Victoria and Leicester City gave George experience, confidence and belief and of course the opportunity to be seen by scouts."

Glen Jones, George's father spoke about the two FootballCV trials his son attended before signing for Manchester City.


"If this was not for FootballCV this would only have been a dream. Thank you so much for everything".

The parents of nineteen year old Ryan Marriott after he played for TNS in the UEFA Cup against Lithunian side Suduva FC in July 2008.

Plymouth Argyle

"We were very impressed with the number of hits on his profile page in such a short period of time and you are doing a wonderful job helping youngsters to fulfill their dreams. Keep the good work up and best wishes for the future."

Samuel Dickin, who was invited for trials at Ipswich Town and Plymouth Argyle. He subsequently undertook a six week trial period at Plymouth Argyle and was signed by them.

Leeds United

"Just a quick thank you very much for the FootballCV trial day at Sheffield that Robert attended. Robert received interest from a couple of scouts on the day and a few days later Robert was invited into the Leeds Academy. They were so happy with his potential and efforts that they signed him up to the club after the second trial. I am in no doubt that without the exposure via the Football CV trials system Robert would never have been able to show his talents to all the football scouts and for that he will be forever grateful. The whole process was professionally organised and it goes to show with a lot of hard work and luck the dream can stay alive .............. but it does help to have FootballCV in your corner."

Malcolm Black – father of Robert Black, 15 year old member of FootballCV who signed for Leeds United Academy in October 2012.

Coventry City

"Thank you for the opportunity that your organisation has provided our son with. When Jak heard that he was being signed by Coventry Academy he had the biggest smile on his face that we have seen for a while. The whole process of getting a trial couldn’t have been easier, pick a venue from the list on website, book it, pay and turn up. All stages of Jak’s initial steps into the world of football were enjoyable and experiences that he would not have had if it wasn’t for FootballCV, playing his trial at St. Georges, getting phone calls with interest from Aston Villa and Coventry City, and the “icing on the cake”, a trial leading to an Academy place with Coventry City. Thanks again."

Wayne and Debi Priest, Parents of Jak Priest, 15 year old member who signed for Coventry City Academy in August 2013 after attending two FootballCV Trial Days .

Peterborough United

"I just wanted to thank you all at FootballCV for your trial days that we have attended; they have managed to get Jordan on his way to hopefully a promising career in football which has been his dream from a young age". Jordan has signed for one year at Peterborough United with a view to progressing on to better things. It's not about being at the top clubs; it's about getting your foot on the ladder, playing other clubs of a higher standard and getting yourself out there, learning and working hard. Only then will you learn what its like, but if your good enough and you want it, Footballcv can get you on your way, but don't give up if it doesn't happen straight away we've been members for years and its been worth the wait!"

Richard Arnold on Jordan Robertson's behalf after he generated great interest following his performance at the Leicester City Trials Day with over 6 clubs chasing his signature from the Premiership down to the Conference before signing for a year with ambitious football league side Peterborough United.

Bolton Wanderers

"I must take this opportunity to thank everyone at FootballCV on Liam's behalf on what has been a fantastic couple of months in Liam's life. Liam is like every thirteen year old boy in the country and aspires to be a professional footballer. Football CV has given him a chance to fulfil his dream. He thoroughly enjoyed the Trials Day - it was a fantastic experience and very well organised. Keep up the great work!"

Mr Noon, father of Liam Noon. Liam had only been a member for a month before he was spotted and subsequently invited to Bolton Wanderer's Academy.

Southend United

"Joe is over the moon and on his behalf i would like to thank FootballCV for all the good work they are doing for kids like him. Joe attracted the attention of Terry Neill, the ex-Arsenal Manager who was acting as a FootballCV panelist at the Dagenham & Redbridge Trials Day. When he was told by Southend that he was being signed his face lit up and if that wasn't enough they have told him that his first game next season will be against Manchester United in a pre-season friendly. It doesnt get any better".

Mark Shelden, father of Joseph Shelden who after a five week trial with the Southend United School of Excellence was offered a one year place at the First Division leaders for the 2006/7 season.

Ipswich Town

"As soon as we registered Thomas with FootballCV.com and he attended his first Trials Day the calls soon started coming in. He thoroughly enjoyed the day and we felt it was very professionally run – it was made all the better by the subsequent offer to join the Academy at Ipswich Town F.C. It is a great concept and we are very happy that Thomas has found such a great club as a result of FootballCV.com."

Pat McGowan, father of member Thomas McGowan.


Peterborough United

"Thanks guys, we are all really looking forward to this evening. I have passed on your kind message to him and he is really grateful and pleased. Rodney will always plug FootballCV wherever possible! He has in fact been asked by several of his friends all about FootballCV and hopefully they are going to use FootballCV as well. He also knows that Keith Alexander and Tommy Taylor are going to be watching with interest from Peterborough's hotel in Liverpool! So no pressure at all really!!! Rod always speaks highly of football CV and is a true ambassador for you guys."

David Hicks, father of FootballCV.com member Rodney Hicks, who appeared live on Sky Sports 1 playing for Kings Lynn against Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup Second Round. Rodney signed for Peterborough United in November 2006 and loaned him out to Kings Lynn to gain some first team experience.

Manchester City

"My son Kieran has always wanted to be a footballer, but it is not that easy to get noticed by clubs. He joined FootballCV.com in August 2002 and went to a Trials Day at Kettering Town's ground in October. A scout from Manchester City was present and through FootballCV made contact and arranged for Kieran to have further trials with the club. On November 10th he made his debut for Manchester City's Academy against Sheffield Wednesday. I can't speak highly enough about FootballCV.com. They have given Kieran the opportunity he wanted. It really is a fairytale come true."

Mrs Davies, mother of FootballCV member Kieran Davies.

Grimsby Town

"I would like to thank you and your staff for a great day at Sutton United. From these trials Danny was invited to Grimsby Town for a six week trial. His dream like many boys is to be a footballer and these trials give them a chance to show what talents they have in front of professional football scouts. Once again thank you to FootballCV.com and keep up the good work so other boys can fulfil their dreams."

Mr Love, father of FootballCV member Danny Love.


"Both my wife and myself would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the staff of Football CV for the football trials that Daniel attended at Northampton and Colchester. Without these opportunties Daniel would not have had the chance to attend QPR ,Cambridge and Nottingham Forest and play alongside some great young players that these teams manage and also not taking anything away from the other young lads trying to follow a dream of becoming a footballer that Daniel has played with at FootballCV."

Gary & Christine Swan, parents of FootballCV member Daniel Swan.


"I just wanted to send a quick note with my thanks and appreciation for the Easter Camp that you recently held in Kettering. Andrew and I returned to Australia today and he has not stopped talking about the time and experiences that he had while on the camp and he is even more determined now to follow his dream to become a professional, even if means having to get a haircut!! Once again I would like to thank you for the fantastic opportunity that you give to the young men that attend your camps and trial days from all over the world."

Mother of an Australian FootballCV Member.


"Having been at West Bromwich Albion as a schoolboy and then Rushden & Diamonds from 16 – 18 years of age I spent a year trying to find another club. I then appeared in several trials organised by FootballCV and almost immediately began to attract interest from clubs including playing reserve games for Chesterfield against the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United. I also appeared on Sky Sports. No doubt this was down to FootballCV – not only their trials but also the way they alert clubs to it’s members. It is encouraging that the over 18 year old members also benefit."

Jonathon Adams – FootballCV member.
