When Antonia Smith first used a Crazy Catch at the Football Grass Roots show in 2011, she knew it was a product that she simply must have!! At the show, she was constantly using the product and spent the whole day on our stand, working on her first touch and control and seeing how many keepy uppies she could do.
Managing Director, Richard Beghin and Antonia who was 13 at the time, soon struck up a great rapour and Crazy Catch have kept in touch. Fast forward to the present and Antonia is now part of the Birmingham City Ladies FC Centre of Excellence program and this season has been one of the stars of their all conquering U17’s side.
Antonia said “This year has been great and one of my favourite seasons so far… we are in the race for the title with only one game to go so hopefully we will win our last game!! We haven’t lost a game all season and played some big teams. Birmingham City Ladies U17’s beat Arsenal ladies U17’s twice, home and away (This has never been done before). Playing as a CDM I am happy to say that I have assisted most goals that my team have scored, only scoring 1 myself. I am really excited about my trip to Sweden I have in July this year and hopefully Birmingham City Ladies U17s will come back as Gothia Cup Champions. My biggest dream is to play in the Women’s Super League, that would be great!!
The support and encouragement the Crazy Catch team has giving me is massively appreciated, From that first day at the Grass Roots show where I had a go on the Crazy Catch I knew it was for me. Now my touch is of a very high standard and that’s due to Crazy Catch and how much it has helped me with my reactions and all round game. I can ensure you that at every chance possible I give everyone of my football team Birmingham City Ladies a lecture on how good the crazy catch is!! I love it!!”
There will be another blog about this oung footballing star when we hand deliver her presents for her Sweden trip… watch this space!
