Embello, a leading printing and merchandise company in the Midlands, has been busy supplying a branded football kit to Premier League player Marc Albrighton as he launches his academy for young players at Tamworth Football Club .
The Leicester City player, who enjoyed a prestigious career with Leicester City for seven years and previously with Aston Villa, has already set up his own development centre. Its aim is to encourage and support children in the sport of football from an early age across the Midlands.
He is now launching an academy at Tamworth Football Club and hopes to encourage up to 1,000 local children to embrace and enjoy the beautiful game.
Albrighton said: “Having been ‘successful’ as a professional footballer, I always dreamed of starting my own football school. I myself enjoyed the best football camps in the area as a boy thanks to the Pete Wilson Soccer Academy This is something we’ve taken a lot and tried to replicate with the main aspect of being fun for everyone.
“Alongside our development centre, we have now decided to launch the academy. This is mainly so that children, if they wish, have a place to continue their progress under our professional guidance and have the opportunity to move up the football ladder.
“We are ambitious people with good values and a shared love of football and I’m sure that reflects the work we have already done and hope to do for many years to come in the local community.”
Tamworth FC are developing and improving their work with young people and have been impressed with the excellent work Marc Albrighton Center of Development has already done. From now on, the club will have a football offer for all age groups and ability levels, from two years old to 12+, starting their footballing journey.
Scott Rickards said: “As one of the biggest brands in grassroots football, it made sense to partner with Marc and pave the way for the kids at our club.
“Marc himself started many years ago playing in the junior league at Tamworth and then realized his dream of becoming a Premier League football player. It is now important to him that these young players have the same opportunities. They will now have access to professional coaching at an exceptional facility while representing their hometown club.”

It’s great to see Tamworth FC continuing to support young talent and a Premier player League like Marc taking positive steps to promote football Ultimately for us it’s about kids learning to love football, fitness, personal development and from that ethic future stars are born. “
