FCV wishes former director the best for the future
Martin Harris, who was Academy Director of the FCV International Football Academy, has left the Academy for a new challenge after thirteen years service to the company.
Martin joined forces with founder, Graham Starmer, in April 2007 when the Academy was first opened and in 2012 became a Director.
“Martin played a pivotal role in the early stages of the academy helping to put together the football programme and overseeing the operations of the Academy. As the Academy grew Martin played a crucial part in the development of the Academy internationally – in particular helping to set up partnerships in Nigeria, India and Sweden.”
“Martin has certainly left a legacy being behind many projects and partnerships over the years and will be sorely missed. On behalf of everyone at the Academy we wish him all the best in his next role.”
Whilst the Academy is preparing for the commencement of the 2020/21 season Harris is looking forward to the next challenge and reflected on his time at the Academy saying
“Having helped the Academy grow from its inception I have been very fortunate during this period to have met and worked with some fantastic people. I would particularly like to thank Graham and all the Academy staff, past and present, who have supported me during my time, their dedication and efforts are very much appreciated.
The Academy’s belief and core values has always been to help young people develop as footballers, academics, but most importantly as people. I am proud to have had the opportunity to assist so many talented students over the years, seeing them progress both on and off the football pitch. The Academy has certainly given me many wonderful memories and I wish all at FCV continued success for the future.”
