Manchester United U15 Captain
England U15 Player

Lee from day one at Burnley FC always took care of my son (Danny) and developed him unlike any other coach.

I believe this to be a major factor in his signing for Manchester United and progressing to the international level with England. I’d definitely say to any company or parent who are looking for World Class football to get in touch with Lee and M18 Sports Team.
