A massive congratulations to iFDA player Tom Leys, who after impressing at The iFDA weekly development centre was sent directly to Blackpool FC Academy in the English Championship through The iFDA scouting network.
Tom’s performances have seen him receive a professional football contract with the club’s football academy, signing on May 11th 2013 – the same day Wigan Athletic won the FA Cup final.
After a tough 12 months which saw him released by Everton FC academy, Tom has worked to his maximum and his focused work has led to interest from various clubs. Alison, Tom’s mother said ‘it was great that he could sign today, the same day as the FA Cup final as Tom’s ambition is to play in one himself when he is older. Thank you so much for all your help.’ Tom has recently been invited to attend the prestigious residential course also.
We are very proud of you Tom, well done and we look forward to seeing you in the FA Cup final 2023!
