Esporta Sheffield to launch youth football academy

August 03, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
Esporta Sheffield has pulled off a major coup in securing the services of ex-Sheffield United favourite David Holdsworth. The former Blades’ star has announced he is to open an innovative football academy for Sheffield’s budding under 11s footballers.

The academy - which will be based exclusively at Esporta Sheffield - will run for a week during August and parents are now invited to telephone 0114 250 5050 for further information and to register their children.

Up to 30 boys and girls will learn both practical and theoretical aspects of the game under direct supervision of a professional footballer with many years’ valuable experience in the Premier League, as well as other English divisions.

Alistair Kennedy, general manager of Esporta Sheffield, said: “David has many years in the game and his wealth of knowledge will provide the kids with a great week of fun and education and more importantly get them off the sofa and into some fantastic exercise.
I am absolutely delighted that we have managed to do a deal with David where he will run his Elite Academy exclusively with Esporta. We plan to run more of these David Holdsworth academies at the club over the coming months, so if your child is not successful on this occasion, you should keep an eye on local press or call Esporta Sheffield for future academy dates.

Esporta is the only Body Training Systems platinum club in Sheffield. The club’s facilities include a 25m heated crystal clear swimming pool with spa facilities; fully air-conditioned studio and gym which conduct 90 classes a week in a variety of activities like aerobics, Thai boxing, yoga and Pilates; crèche and children’s activities like swimming lessons; restaurant and on-site hairdresser.

New membership and joining offers are also on this month, for example an attractive Refer a Friend scheme. Call 0114 2505050 for an appointment, or visit for more information.
