Isaac Nixon from the B9 on trial with Fulham (EPL)


Isaac Nixon from the B9 was recently given a professional opportunity he will never forget by playing for Fulham FC (EPL) in a training game during spring break, not only that he gave a good account of himself scoring 4 goals in the game in his first taste of professional soccer.

Fulham are one of the clubs leading the way at Academy level having won the Barclays Under-18 Premier League title for the past three seasons and the National Final for the past two. In the 2013/14 season alone, Cauley Woodrow, Patrick Roberts, Moussa Dembélé, Lasse Vigen Christensen, Josh Passley, Ange-Freddy Plumian, Dan Burn and Muamer Tanković have all featured for Fulham's First Team. Their U19 team also won the top bracket of Dallas Cup 2013 which is an international tournament.

The heads of their academy were formerly at Southampton having brought through world class players such as Gareth Bale, Oxlaid Chamberlaine, Theo Walcott and the fact that Isaac created a good first impression and they provided us with great feedback and areas to work with him over the next year to continue his development.

'Isaac has exciting potential and was spotted by Manchester United scout Matt Broadhead in our summer camp 2013 and through his contacts he was invited to watch the FA Youth Cup semi final between Fulham and Reading and then take part in two training games the next day. It highlights his potential that he peformed so well for his first time and also gives him an insight into professional soccer and the dedication required to play at the highest level, even at a young age.

We have to ensure our training is enjoyable and age appropriate aligned with being at the highest level possible to allow players like Isaac these professional and unforgettable experiences. This is the start of using our professional networks to give players the pathway and knowledge to play at the highest level possible and we are really proud of Isaac for representing the club so well at such a young age."

Essential Foods for Soccer


5 essential foods to optimize your performance in soccer, by Arsenal nutritionist James Collins.

Typically all athletes’ diets, especially footballers’, are low in OMEGA 3. This can be extremely important for muscle recovery and its anti-inflammatory effects.

They help to provide copper, which is important for immune function. They also contain magnesium, which can help with cramping. It’s an important thing to include each day. Too often, especially in the summer, players’ diets can be low in this.

It’s important to get vegetables and fruit, which are high in anti-oxidants, on board everyday. It’s an easy thing to add to your diet each day by having cherry or blueberry juice. Anti-oxidants are extremely important for clearing the muscles and getting rid of free radicals, which will allow you to go into training feeling fresher.

Adding a low fat yoghurt to your diet is extremely important for providing calcium for bone health. At Arsenal we really structure the players’ protein feedings over the day because if they have a hard session their muscles are still adapting 24 hours afterwards. It’s no good just getting the recovery feeding right, you need to consider what you’re having before bed as most of this adaptation is happening over night.

A different grain which is high in amino acids, has a good carbohydrate content and is something a player could have as a pre-match meal instead of pasta, rice or bread.
