Academy Progression & Success

Luca and Charlie were both an integral part of the East Coker U8’s team last season, winning the U8 Champions Cup final 11-2 against Wessex Raptor’s. The boys’ talents were spotted by Exeter City who offered them an Academy contract. They are both loving life with their new team mates and are enjoying the challenge of stepping up to a new level with the excellent coaching and environment the Exeter Academy offers to its players.

East Coker Cockerels are proud to see our players go on to Academy standard and today the boys both played and scored goals against Cardiff City FC’s Academy.

Keep up the good work boys. We are all very proud of what you are achieving.

Any support greatly received

Leonardo is now in its tenth year of supporting AFPST, working to make a lasting contributing to the freedom, rehabilitation and transformation of the wounded, injured or sick military personnel and veterans. In 2019, Leonardo is organising the Ride of Steel event to raise money for this worthwhile cause.
