Soccerstar Football Academy was established in 2008 by ex-professional footballer and UEFA ‘A’ License Coach, Domenico Genovese.
As well as playing professional football for Peterborough United, he also played for top semi-professional teams such as, Kettering Town, Boston United, Cambridge City and Stamford Town, within these times making two Wembley appearances along the way.
After a 15 year playing career, he made the step into professional coaching, where in 1990, he gained the prestigious UEFA ‘A’ License. He gained a vast amount of coaching experience working with the Professional Football Association (PFA), setting up Football in the Community Schemes at Peterborough United and Kettering Town.
He was also instrumental in setting up and developing the Football Centre of Excellence at Peterborough United, which still exists today. In 2004 the Football Academy was set up at Kettering Town FC in conjunction with Tresham College.
The Soccerstar Academy opened another centre in 2008 with Spalding United FC in conjunction with the Peterborough Regional College, which still exist today.
In 2011 the Soccerstar Football Academy forged links with Peterborough Northern Star FC in conjunction with the City College of Peterborough.
2015 Soccerstar moved to new facilities at the In2itive Park, home of Yaxley Football Club, where we have full use of a new 3G pitch and modern IT rooms.
We hold regular trial days for those interested in joining the academy. For more information please read our FAQs page or download on 2017/18 brochure.
