Martin & Tanya Johnson
Oscar, aged 8 joined Solidrock Academy about eight months ago. He was very shy and not so confident. Since being at the club his football ability has improved tremendously.
Peter has since organised trials at Chelsea and Crystal Palace for him.
Most importantly Oscar has made new friends and his confidence has grown.
Additionally, at Solidrock Academy Summer camp Oscar learnt how to ride his bike.

Jack came to Solidrock Academy at age 4 as a very shy young boy. After having trained for a few months he began to grow in confidence and start showing signs of being a good player.
Coach Peter Barry decided to put him in to play with the older boys. Despite the fact that Jack was out of his comfort zone he played well, demonstrating fearlessness and an eagerness to get on the ball.
Peter sent him on yr1 trials at Chelsea Football Club where Jack’s football really took off. He decided to move to Crystal Palace Football Club where he is now a signed u10 player.
