Clarksville S.C. Joins West Ham United North American Academy

October 2, 2017- West Ham United of the English Premier League have formed a partnership
with Clarksville, Tennessee based, Clarksville S.C. (CSC). The partnership was formed through

★ College and Professional recruitment advice
★ Tours to West Ham United in London, England with exclusive partner access
★ West Ham United Coaching Diploma Course

The goals of the partnership are to increase the quality of players and coaches of CSC, and to
provide West Ham United access to a player pool they wouldn’t have otherwise.
CSC Director of Coaching, Kean Barclay, spent time observing and engaging with West Ham
United in the spring of 2007. This previous relationship was key in the development of this

“I specifically feel that having a relationship with a premiership team I'm familiar with and one
that has such a fantastic reputation in player development was an opportunity we had to get
involved with.” said Barclay, “ I believe our club members and surrounding clubs would relish
the opportunity to attend some ID camps and evaluations conducted by staff members of West
Ham United. We are all excited to see what types of experience and opportunities our athletes
can gain from this and we're looking forward to this collaboration.
Global Image Sports and West Ham United are very excited for this partnership with CSC , and
are looking forward to a long and successful relationship. Stay tuned for event announcements
