Bedworth Utd FC Academy – NEW Signing – Alfie Smith

Bedworth Utd Academy are pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Alfie Smith who will start the Scholarship Programme in September 2024. Alfie is a strong, powerful player, who can play anywhere across the midfield and is a superb passer of the ball. He spent most of his younger footballing days playing for Coventry United where he was picked up by Leicester City Academy and remained at the Foxes for two years. Most recently Alfie has been playing for Bedworth Utd u16s in the MJPL on Saturdays, whilst also having been selected for Copsewood u18s youth team in the MFL.  Alfie is also an accomplished golfer with a respectable handicap. He attends Coundon Court School and is hoping to achieve the GCSE results required for the Scholarship Programme.

Alfies Dad Ricky Smith was a young professional footballer at Coventry City back in 1993/94, when Bedworths very own Lee Hurst was an established 1st team player with the Sky Blues (check out the attached photo!), and that same year, Bedworth Utd Academy Manager and 1st team Head Coach Jamie Lenton was a YTS apprentice, cleaning both their boots!
