Connecting people, ideas, and support from the crowd to make Leicester an even better place!
Our programme supports young aspiring footballers who have either missed out on a chance to gain an apprenticeship at a professional football club or players who the scouting system has missed out on. We believe there isn’t any or a lot of support in place for players who do not secure an apprenticeship with a professional football club. The club’s main ambition is to, encourage and promote youth well-being and continually strive to develop while playing the highest standard possible. This project can be viewed as addressing the inefficient allocation of resources. To elaborate the England is blessed with talented footballers (Human Capital) such that there is a surplus of such talent. Countries on the continent have identified this. What LFE do is address this issue by acting providing further coaching for players who have been released from English football academies or any players that have not been to academies but have the potential to play football at a higher level.
