The first ever season of the Newcastle Elite Academy Youth Football Development League (sponsored by yours truly) is over! But before the players could go away to rest and recuperate before the 2019/2020 season begins, we had the YFDL Presentation Evening to honor each team that participated this year.
On 7th May, we had 3 different presentations for U6’s & U7’s, U8’s & U9’s respectively and there were some famous faces along the way! Academy Director Paul Dummett and Newcastle United alumni Mike Williamson were on hand for the presentation as well as our MD Chris Lowery and Newcastle Elite Academy Head Coach Louis Storey.
Each team was handed a medal and got to take a photo with Paul and Mike! We even had trophies for best managers of the year and a raffle for each presentation for a signed Newcastle United shirt!
All in all, we hope everyone had a great time last Tuesday at the YFDL Presentation Evening and we would like to thank you for participating in the first ever season of the YFDL. Without your support & players, the YFDL wouldn’t be what it is today! We hope to see you all at next year’s presentation. In the mean time, have a fantastic summer!
