"Protec’s record as a leading independent Football Academy speaks for itself. They offer a fantastic opportunity for young players to develop their football talent." - Terry Venables Ex Barcelona & England Manager

- Stan Collymore  Ex Liverpool, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Leicester City Striker

" Before the Wenger "this man changed football fitness" myth, there was Pete Edwards. Introduced modern football fitness, nutrition into English game with NFFC '93. A bigger architect of promotion to 3rd in Prem than Clark, Pearce or me.

Pros, use him, he's the Godfather."
