EduKick England Alumni, Samuel Zimmerman, is attending college and playing for FC Emmenbrücke! At the end of his EduKick England Year Long program Sam attended trials with English Championship professional team Peterborough FC arranged for him by EduKick. The trial was a success and Sam was invited back to Peterborough to attend pre- season with them but while back home in Switzerland Sam attended more trials with professional teams in the Lucerne area. The trials were again successful and after some serious thought Sam decided to sign his first contract with FC Emmenbrücke who are currently playing in Liga 2 in the Swiss football pyramid. Signing the contract with FC Emmenbrücke will also allow Sam to continue and complete his college studies which was important to Sam and his family when taking this important decision.
More good news for Sam is that he has been invited to participate in training sessions with theLichtenstein national U21 team during October.
When asked about his time with EduKick, Sam said, “Football wise I got much stronger and developed my fitness. My game understanding is ten times better than before. Living for a whole year in England with a host family, developed my character and I enjoyed to play with all the different people from other cultures.”
EduKick England Director Mick Brennan had this to say “When Sam joined our Year Long Academy program it was clear that he had raw ability, a great attitude and was very humble which are key ingredients required to succeed on the pitch and in life. We are delighted that we have been able to play a part in Sam taking his first step into professional football.”
