Sports Academy USA Aims to Bring Quality British Soccer Players to USA
As soccer fans, we often assume that players have it all. However when I asked Sam Craven what motivated him and business partner Lance Stimpson to set up ‘Sports Academy USA,’ he told me “I just wanted more from life.” Up until recently Craven had been plying his trade with FC New York, but now back in England along with Lance, they aim to give the same opportunity they had to talented British players wanting more.
‘Sports Academy USA’ aims to help British soccer players through the potentially daunting process of applying for a scholarship stateside. “I know so many talented players back home,” said Craven. Home to them is Nottingham with the pair having both spent time at Notts County in their youth before embarking to America.
