Academy system full of promise in Tilbury
Date posted: 05-09-2012
THE TILBURY football academy has only been running for six weeks but it is already paying dividends.
The team took on Thurrock at Chadfields on Wednesday afternoon. Although they lost 1-0 (hotly contested penalty) and tempers frayed after a very ropey two-footed challenge by a Dockers defender (its on the film), it was a good run out and a step in the right direction.
After the game, we spoke to Paul Vaughan about how the academy operates, who funds it and what do the students gain from it.
