Freddie Ladapo visits EPDC

Freddie Ladapo visited the Foundation’s Boy’s Elite Player Development Centre at Hartismere School in Eye earlier this week.

Freddie watched the groups train at Wednesday’s session, taking the time to answer questions and offer advice to the participants in each group and their coaches, as well as having pictures taken with the participants and their parents.

Our Elite Player Development Centres (EPDC) are a regional coaching initiative, offering opportunities in Suffolk, Essex Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.

For the 2022/23 season, we are running centres in Ipswich, Haverhill, Kirkley, Sudbury, Eye, Tiptree, Colchester, Bottisham, Bury St. Edmunds, Beccles, Billericay, Chelmsford, Chatteris and Thetford.

Players for our EPDC are identified by club scouts and invited in to trial at their nearest location and if successful are invited to join the programme.
