Patrick welcomed Sam to the BIC family aged 10 from grass root football with Portishead. The professionalism, structure and BIC values were immediately apparent. It was clear why the centre had such a great reputation with the philosophy promoting a visibly positive environment for both enjoyment and development.
Matt Curry has been a fantastic coach. He is a credit to BIC; his attitude, approach and commitment to the players development is exemplary. Sam has had an excellent experience during his years at BIC and it has beenit has been a pleasure to watch him mature and develop as a player, testament to the coaching approach, philosophy and level of support.
Patrick has an Advanced Development Centre to be very proud of. He’s been a fantastic steer throughout and we are very grateful of the recent guidance and support from both Patrick and Matt on Sam’s signing to Bristol City FC. From parent and player perspectives, we fully endorse, and would not hesitate to recommend, BIC. Brilliant people, brilliant experience!- Dave Haberfield – (U12 Parent) – Signed for Bristol City in May 2015
