Hello, Is your school linked to the football Academy? The reason I ask is our son aged 14 years went for trials with Academico De Viseu last year September and was successful and is supposed to go join this year. We however have a challenge that there isn't a boarding school close proximity to the club academy. Regards Percy Mangena +278023784470(South Africa)
