I always get a tinge of jealousy when I go to new academies. The facilities are impressive and there’s always a sense of eagerness amongst the pupils to learn and take part. I’d gone along to photograph Jacob Maddox, the 14 year old former Bristol City youngster who has just signed for Chelsea. (My Dad nearly had a trial with Chelsea once. True story). Jacob’s highly rated by all those who have worked with him so fingers crossed for the future.
