Pezzaz Graduate from Andover signs with AFC Bournemouth

Pezzaz graduate, Finn Tonks from Andover has been signed as a professional footballer at AFC Bournemouth.

Finn, from Andover, attended Pezzaz from 7 years of age and graduated through their development centres and Academy before joining the Academy at Bournemouth. Finn now joins Charlie Webster(Chelsea) and Vaughn Covil (Forest Green) who have graduated from Pezzaz to be full time professional footballers.

Perry Cocking the owner of Pezzaz Football says, “Finn has to take all the credit himself, as do his wonderful parents for supporting him and facilitating the journey. They quickly understood the philosophy, methods and environment at Pezzaz and stuck with it right the way through. Finn attended every session possible and worked extremely hard. We’re all very proud of you Tonksy.

Hopefully, as more and more Pezzaz players fulfil their potential, it will help to inspire other local children to follow their own dreams. Not just at football, but at anything they choose to do and have a passion for. It’s not all about football. It’s about character building, life lessons and confidence.

Pezzaz will be running a Andover Summer Football Camp for 5 to 11year olds on 26 July until the 30 July and a Summer Multi-Sports and Games week Including NERF & Laser Tag for 5 to 11 year olds on 23 August until the 25 August. Visit their website to find out more.
