Chelsea star Wright-Phillips launches own academy

Chelsea star Shaun Wright-Phillips has launched his own academy.

Aimed at boys and girls between the ages of five and 12 years, the Shaun Wright-Phillips Academy offers intensive week-long courses led by FA qualified coaches.

"It's my aim through the academy to provide boys and girls with the opportunity to play football in a fun and safe environment," Wright-Phillips told Chelsea's website.

"It's great to give something back to the sport which has provided me with so many great experiences.

"Receiving coaching from qualified coaches is vital to any player's development and while I'm not looking for the next Shaun Wright-Phillips, it's great to see kids improving their skills and playing football with a smile on their face," he added.
