Training Centre for English football at St George's Park on Monday 22 July
ahead of what will be an unforgettable experience.

attending and using this amazing opportunity to network with new leaders and to
develop new ideas around leadership which will allow me to develop myself and
others in the County.”
Sam Hilling, Youth Council’s Programme
Officer said: “I am looking forward
to attending this year’s Leadership Academy because it will push me out of my
comfort zone. I will be forced into similar scenarios during Camp that I will
face in my desired career pathway and line of work currently.
am also looking forward to staying at the St George’s Park complex and use
their facilities whilst meeting new people from a range of County Football Associations
across the country.”
Norfolk FA’s Football Development Officer,
Harry Diggens will also be attending this year’s Academy as a Youth Leader

challenge them further and allow them to bring back learning to
impact the next generation of youth leaders in Norfolk.”
