    Celtic Soccer Academy Welcomes Australian Nerang Soccer Club

    By: Newsroom Staff on 24 Mar, 2017 18:01

  • THE Celtic Soccer Academy is delighted to have joined forces with Nerang Soccer Club, further enhancing their links across the East Coast of Australia.

    The Nerang Soccer Club from the Gold Coast was formed back in 1972 and pride themselves on developing young players across their very successful youth teams at U12s, U13s, U15s and U18s levels. 

    As an official Celtic Academy Partner they will look to share methodologies, create coach education programmes and host various development coaching camps.

    The agreement will see players and coaches from Nerang travel to Glasgow to experience what life is like for an Academy player at Celtic Football Club. Their coaches will also be invited to Celtic’s famous International Coaches’ Convention at Celtic Park and receive a behind-the-scenes look at how Celtic develop young players to reach their potential.

    In one of the first activities between the two, Nerang Soccer Club will host a camp for Boys and Girls aged between 9-18 where they will receive first-hand coaching from Celtic Soccer Academy Coaches.

    Soccer Co-ordinator at Nerang, Michael Opie spoke excitedly ahead of this new partnership: “Nerang Soccer Clubs partnership with Scottish giants Celtic will provide a great opportunity for our young aspiring footballers in the Gold Coast to learn the Celtic way.

    "We look forward to working closely with Celtic over the next couple of years and hopefully unearthing the next Tom Rogic.”

    Celtic FC’s International Soccer Academy Manager, Tony Massie, added: “We’re delighted to add Nerang Soccer Club to our International Partnership Programme and it again emphasises our commitment to building relationships across the globe.

    "We look forward to having our coaches travel across to the Gold Coast to support the venture and to seeing the partnership grow over time.”

    The Nerang and Celtic Soccer Academy Camp will run from Monday, April 3 to Friday, April 7 (9am-3pm) at Glennon Park, Nerang, Queensland with places available now priced $385 per player.

    To book, please contact Michael Opie on 0406030699 or email [email protected]

    If you would like more information on our Club Partnership Programme in Australia or elsewhere in the world, please contact Soccer Academy Manager, Tony Massie on +44 (0) 141 551 4297 or [email protected]
