REVIEWS

At Football Futures we pride ourselves on delivering the best quality football coaching in Kent. See below for reviews from parents, of how our training is impacting the lives of young people.

“Our Son started Thanet Advanced Academy when it launched in April. It was only a few months ago and I’m so pleased with his progress. The coaches have helped his confidence grow enormously. The coaching is superb and of high standard, yet really enjoyable for the kids. Rhys has had the opportunity of playing in academy games, which has also helped his confidence and the coaching at these games is outstanding.”


“Our son has been training with Football Futures Academy for the last couple of months and is thoroughly enjoying it. Our son has developed his football skills since joining the academy and his confidence is soaring. He attended all 3 days of their half term soccer school and was sad it was only on for 3 days and not 5!! The trainers are excellent with the children, it is professionally run with an excellent level of discipline. They are also fantastically Covid compliant! Well done Josh & Bailey we can’t wait for the next soccer school in 2021!! Thank you.”


“Both my boys are football mad so what better way to spend their half term than with the Football Future at their Soccer school, they both absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go again in February (fingers crossed ). All Staff are helpful and friendly and was very well organised. Thank you again to Josh & the team.”


“Couldn’t recommend Josh & his team enough. The sessions are very tough, educational. Expect to get full value for money & development through their coaching style.”


“Our boys have been having 1-2 sessions with Josh and Bailey for the past few weeks and they absolutely love it. Every session is different and they come out sweaty, buzzing and looking forward to the next one. You can see that Josh and Bailey really enjoy what they do as it comes across in their encouragement while they’re coaching. My boys have really missed their football in lockdown and these sessions have given them just what they needed. It’s definitely sharpened their skills, fitness and they’ll be ready for the season ahead.”



“Hayden (10) has been doing 1-1 and 2-1 sessions with Football Futures for about two months now. He looks forward to every session, is treated like a grown up and wants to impress Josh and Bailey at every session. You can see he is growing in confidence, fitness and ability. I can’t recommend Football Futures enough and it is amazing the way Josh and the team inspire young kids to pursue their dreams.”


“If you want to learn more about the game and give you professional tutoring, then I would look no further than Football Futures, the academy in which my son’s just finished his first year has offered a him a real understanding of the game giving him belief in his abilities. It’s improved his fitness, skill sets & movement on and off the ball with real comprehensive training sessions getting the best out of you, they play against some great teams in a competitive league, which in his first year has opened up opportunities and now his playing in Kent County Div in men’s football which will run along side his 2nd year. Thank you Football Futures & Josh Algar.”


“Albie has been with the Advanced Academy since he was 7 and through the professional coaching our son has gained so much, technically & physically in a short space of time, he has also benefited greatly from the fixtures arranged by the Academy, playing the likes of Arsenal, Charlton, Millwall and Wimbledon. On a personal note Josh the head coach is a very focused individual who wants nothing but the best from his players and to do well in their progression as he gives honest, constructive & positive feedback regularly. Albie responds very well to Josh’s calm coaching style & within less than a year under his guidance our son has progressed into the Gillingham FC advance squad and eventually made his debut playing for the 1st team. I would highly recommend the Advance Academy night for anyone who wants their child to take their football to the next level.”


“The boys absolutely love their training with Football Futures especially the holiday football club, having been to a few others in the past they felt they learned far more with Josh & his team gaining lots of new skills and more confidence they are always excited to go and are especially enjoying the agility training on a Friday evening.”



“My son Riley went to the soccer school for the first time in half term, he absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go again! Staff are helpful and friendly and the whole thing is very well organised! We will be booking the whole week next time! He’s also loving football every Saturday and we are so pleased he has found a hobby he loves!”


“My son has recently joined FF on their Friday sessions plus has enjoyed a Summer School week this school holiday. He’s absolutely loved it – Josh and his team are fabulous, they get to know the players and really understand what makes them tick. I highly recommend Football Futures!”


“My son Jake has been with Football Futures for nearly 2 years now. Throughout this time Jake has been given great opportunities playing against various professional clubs. Josh is a great coach who really cares about the development of his players, this shows when you get a report at the end of each season which details how the season has gone and what the player needs to work on. These reports must take him forever to complete for each player, but this shows his dedication to their development. More recently Jake has been attending 2:1 sessions with Josh and Bailey which are really helping him get ready for next season. I would highly recommend these sessions because they are great for fitness/ball mastery and working on technique. Jake really enjoys the sessions and looks forward to next one.”


“Best Academy ever, my boys love it here. Your not just a number!! Josh & the coaches work hard to get the best out of the boys & their progression. It’s so nice to get regular feedback.”



“My son ollie attended the whole week and he loved it. He’s new to football and didn’t know many people going so I was a bit nervous about how he would get on. But he was fine! The guys are very professional and I would definitely recommend and send him again.”


“Both my son and daughter attended throughout the summer and they both absolutely loved it. Josh and the team really boost the kids confidence and I feel really well informed about their progress. The timings of it were handy, worked around my career and also gave the kids a good opportunity to play a decent amount of football without being too tired! Would highly recommend! Thanks lads!”


“Football Futures hosted my sons 5th birthday party yesterday – he absolutely loved it! The coaches were so so so good with the boys and really kept them busy and happy! Thanks so much for a stress free party that was thoroughly enjoyed!”


“My son Charlie loves Football Futures. Me and Charlie couldn’t be happier with Josh and his team. It’s nice to find people so dedicated to help each and every player develop the best they can be!”



“My son attended half term soccer school, he absolutely loved it, he can’t wait for the next one. The whole setup is well run with friendly coaches, it’s reasonably priced and easy to book and pay! Massive thank you to Josh and his team and Archie will definitely be attending the next one! Keep up the good work guys.”


“My son is just starting off playing and has come on leaps and bounds with his week at Football Futures. A great set of coaches, friendly atmosphere, and most importantly, fun and enjoyable.”


“Today was my first session and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I was pushed hard and training was very intense. The training was made fun and after assessing my ability I can clearly see my strengths and weaknesses. 100% would recommend and will be returning for more development!”


“I just want to say a massive thank you to Josh and all of the coaches at football futures. Connor has had a brilliant week at your soccer school and has come out so happy every day, telling me all about it (which is very rare!) The best soccer school he has been to!”



“My son Jack joined Futures Advanced Academy 7 or 8 weeks ago and I can honestly say that it has been a great move for us. The training is fantastic the coaches are excellent and friendly , I thought he was fit and played to a good level for a 10 year but in that short period I have seen a huge improvement. He looks forward to it every week and truly enjoys it. I can’t say enough good things about Futures.

He has also attended all 3 days of the October soccer school (with half of his team mates, can’t wait for Sundays league match) Even though the weather hasn’t been great he has been up early kit on and raring to go with a massive smile on his face. He’s had a brilliant half term and we’ll definitely be at the next one!”


“My son attended the 3 day summer camp and absolutely loved every minute. The coaches were amazing, so friendly, bubbly and made my son instantly feel at ease. He was incredibly enthusiastic to go back every day as he loved it so much. The training they were given was incredible. Couldn’t praise the coaches and this experience for my son, enough. Truly remarkable! Would highly recommend to anyone.”


“My sons started 2:1 sessions with Josh in June and have loved every minute. Every session is different and with encouragement they are pushed to their full potential. Their fitness, ball mastery and technique have improved so they will benefit enormously when the season starts. Definitely worth the money. I would highly recommend Josh and Baileys sessions.”


“My son has been doing holiday football camps with Josh for a few years and has always thoroughly enjoyed them. He recently started 1-1 sessions with him. He finds them very intensive and fast paced, as well as fun. I highly recommend Josh’s sessions.”



“Can’t recommend FF 1-2-1 sessions enough! My son started 1-2-1 sessions with Josh and Bailey after being out with a serious injury before lockdown. The sessions are always different and he comes away feeling great and that he’s worked really hard! He feels a lot fitter and ready for upcoming trials when trials are allowed to start again! Even though my sons club training has re started we have kept with the 1-2-1 sessions as he enjoys them so much! Cant recommend josh and Bailey enough.”


“Archie although new to Football Futures was made to feel most welcome and part of the team by the coach’s and players. The mid weeks sessions and half term academy has seen a massive improvement in Archie’s game. The coaching staff are friendly and knowledgeable and from what I’ve seen so far they put on some pretty spectacular training sessions. I would wholeheartedly recommend Football Futures 👍🏻Archie lives for his next session.”


“My son currently plays At U7’s, he’s been having 1-2-1 sessions for 4 weeks now and the improvement has been amazing. The drills that Josh and Bailey set up are far better than I’ve seen anywhere else. They are constantly encouraging whilst making sure he puts 100% it at all times. I’d highly recommend them”


“My son has been doing 2-1 sessions with the Football Futures team for a few weeks and has thoroughly enjoyed it, they are given encouragement to better themselves physically and the skills they need to attain to help them progress in their current football journey. Josh and the team have been great and the improvements are clear to see in my son’s abilities to date.”
