Talent ID Program

Our Talent ID Program is so we can identify players to attend our Bolton Wanderers Pro Xperience and Masita Cup in July.  Danny Clarke the Lead Academy Coach at Bolton Wanderers Football Club in the UK will be attending this tournament to help identify players to be part of our Premier Football Club Australia Tour Team later in 2018.

It cannot be overstressed that the ability to perform the fundamentals of the game, the 4 functional game skills (Core Skills)striking the ball, dribbling/running with the ball, first touch and 1 v 1 is of great significance to the overall development and the equipping of a young player to compete in today’s modern game.
