Academy – NEW Signing – Alfie Brain

We are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Alfie Brain, who has agreed to join The Bedworth Utd Academy Scholarship programme in September 2024. Alfie has all the attributes required to be a modern day goalkeeper, being an excellent shot stopper and very comfortable with the ball at his feet, along with a lovely left foot strike.


Through playing for his school team Blue Coats, Alfie was selected to play for the West Midlands Schools’ County team, consistently playing for the last 2 seasons. He has had interest from several league clubs including Leicester City, Birmingham City and Nottingham Forest. Alfie has played for Coventry Copsewood since the age of 6, as well as Carl Baker Football Academy in the MJPL since 2022.

Alfie’s been impressed with the quality of coaching at Bedworth Utd Academy, and the standard of the players attending Academy sessions.

“I had planned to go to sixth form after completing my GCSEs, however, after attending the scholarship programme information evening, I really liked the way the scholarship programme combines academic and footballing development. The Academy will offer me the chance to achieve the equivalent of 3 A’ levels in a subject I love (sport), while being part of a great football set-up, was way more than sixth form could offer.”


Welcome on board Alfie
