West Ham scout excited by talent at Galaxy Youth ID camp in Sydney

The Sydney 2012 West Ham United Academy Youth Player Identification Camp hosted by Galaxy Football School was an overwhelming success.

On April 11th, 12th & 13th 2012 Galaxy Football School in conjunction with its official global development partner West Ham United International Academy hosted its first 3 Day Youth Talent Identification Camp at ELS Hall Park in Marsfield, Sydney.

The 3 Day Camp attracted some of Sydney's most elite youth players including players from Melbourne and Adelaide. The camp was overseen by Mike Leigh, a UEFA "A" Licensed West Ham United Academy Scout and Coach with 30-plus years of elite youth football coaching experience. Leigh is credited with scouting some of West Ham United most promising future stars including Australian U/17?s and future Socceroo Dylan Tombides, who is now seen as an integral part of the West Ham United Youth Academy.

A select group of elite players have also been chosen from the Sydney ID Camp and will be invited to the West Ham United Academy in London to attend the 2013 West Ham United Academy experience with other elite players joining them from Europe, North America and South East Asia.

The standard across the three days of both the coaching by Leigh and also the player participation was of the highest professional standard.

With this in mind we eagerly anticipate the 2013 ID Camp and wish all elite selected players travelling to London in 2013 the very best of luck in their West Ham United Academy Experience.
