Many of you that read our blog know that our son Aaron Pengelly is a footballer with AFC Sudbury Academy.
This week Pengelly Photography were asked to photograph the whole Academy along with individual images of each player and coaches.
The boys are full time, training 4 days a week and also being educated to BTEC level 3 Extended Diploma at the purpose built class rooms at the club. Also the boys are playing in 5 separate leagues which are:
- U19 National Alliance League- Wednesday
- Thurlow Nunn Youth League- Thursday
- Ryman U21 League- Friday
- Thurlow Nunn Division 1 League- Saturday
- Essex Senior Reserve League- Saturday
The Academy played in the FA Youth Cup progressing to the 2nd Rd proper. They travelled to Swindon to play League One professional football club Swindon Town, narrowly losing 3-2 AET.
The Academy were the only non league team in Suffolk to progress that far which was quite an achievement.
These are very exciting times for the Academy with a possible trip to America next year.
