ProChance is an organisation that helps young players who have been let go by clubs, and those that haven't yet been given a chance in the game, an opportunity to prove their worth. The aim is to give these talented young players a platform to earn themselves a professional football contract.
A select team took on Sheffield United’s U18s in an exhibition match behind closed doors at St. George’s Park on Saturday 26th September, watched live by 5,500 people on the ProChance Football YouTube channel by scouts and fans. The match finished ProChance Football 1 – 4 Sheffield United U18 proving a good test for the ProChance team.
ProChance Head Coach, Liam Sutcliffe said "After suffering the disappointment of release and many of the players we work with are late developers, often all of them have struggled to break down the door to professional football in the past. St George's Park, the home of English football provides inspiration and helps ignite a fire in the players and staff.
The whole environment from the staff of SGP to the world-renowned facilities provide a truly unbelievable experience for any player or coach and for us helps spark a hunger in talented young players. St George's Park provides a football environment which helps ProChance work with young, talented footballers on the outside of the professional game and help them engage with the game they love".
SGP epitomises positivity, confidence and professionalism. These qualities rub off on all of us, players included".
