19 year old Jake Phillips this week completed a move to league one side Sheffield United.
Jake has been part of the Evo football academy in the past year since being released from Tranmere Rovers in 2014. Jake worked extremely hard at the academy with the ultimate goals when he joined us to increase his speed, power and explosiveness, he really did do this is an a short space of time. Jake followed one of our unique training programmes at our academy working on these key areas using specialist fitLight reaction training equipment along with our tailored cognitive training programmes, he become fitter, faster, stronger and mentally sharp. Jake is a prime example of what a dedicated and disciplined professional can achieve. We know it is hard for players getting released but as we always say never stop believing, go away learn about yourself and where the development is needed and bounce back stronger, Jake certainly done this. We are all proud of Jake and it was a pleasure to work with him, we will miss him but we look forward to following his bright future ahead and hopefully there is another Jake around the corner willing to come in and put in the hard work to achieve their dreams.
Congratulations and best wishes to Jake Phillips from all at Evo football.
