Enterprise UK ambassador Gérard set up his football academy with his father Bryn while still studying for his degree in sports coaching. Offering young players an alterative to the FA system of player development, the Hull-based centre has already secured a partnership with Arsenal FC. The school offers young players a variety of group and individual training programmes and also works with local schools. Not content with just running the school however, Gérard has plans to become the England manager one day.
