As a schoolboy I attended the IFA, in its previous format. The coaching was of a high standard, in a structured manner, with regular feedback on how I was progressing. The IFA is an ideal platform for players wishing to receive academy standard coaching and play games against various professional clubs. The coaches were always really enthusiastic and full of encouragement. The IFA certainly improved my game, as a schoolboy footballer.
