SAVVAS JOHN SAVVA 

FOUNDER & HEAD COACH

I began my football journey at 14, playing for Omonia in the London Kopa U18's league before moving on to Acheritou in the senior Kopa league. I completed a three-year apprenticeship at Arsenal before taking trials at Millwall, Hull City, Haringey Borough, Heybridge Swifts, and Braintree Town, with mixed outcomes. 

 

At 16, I started coaching, eventually running Arsenal soccer schools from 18 to 23, as-well-as coaching for former England cricketer Roland Butcher's Arsenal Soccer School franchise, World Youth Promotions. I spent a year at Colchester United when when I left Arsenal at eighteen.

 

In 1999, I founded 'Football 2000' in Colchester, which later became 'F2 UK' in 2003, and eventually evolved into 'Skill 7' in October 2004. Skill 7 FC, (as we are now known), are one of the longest serving coaching organisations in Hertfordshire and Berkshire!

BASIT AMADU

QUALIFIED HEAD COACH

I met Sav during my work experience when I was just 15 years old. It took him two years of convincing, but eventually, I decided to coach for Skill7 . Looking back, it was the best decision I've ever made.

 

Before I found my true calling, I had played football for various local and professional clubs during my youth. However, at the age of 17, I discovered my passion for coaching youth football. Now, every day, I wake up with a sense of joy and purpose, knowing that I get to coach and mentor these young kids. It's incredibly fulfilling to be a part of their development and growth.

 

I've been a caregiver for my mom since a young age, and it has been a very gratifying experience to provide support and care to someone so close to me. This sense of compassion and responsibility that I've developed as a caregiver has had a profound impact on my coaching journey. 

ANGEL ADAMS

FA PLAYMAKER HEAD COACH

My journey with Skill7 camps began at an early age, attending from ages 7 to 12. At 13, I started volunteering, driven by my love for football.

 

Taking a brief detour from 14 to 15, I worked at a hairdresser's, only to quickly realise that football coaching was my true calling.

 

Since age 16, I have been dedicated to coaching young kids on the field. In addition to coaching, I volunteered in a leadership role, guiding the development of London Colney football team's U8/9's.

 

I am now working towards an apprenticeship
