Chicken & Blues is delighted to announce that it has joined forces with AFC Bournemouth captain Simon Francis to promote the Simon Francis Academies in Bournemouth and Poole.

SFA aims to offer ‘academy standard’ training for both boys and girls, at any age, for affordable rates. They ensure the right blend of enjoyment and guidance to take them to the next level.

Star players from AFC Bournemouth’s premier league team are often seen making special appearances at SFA, as well as a strong commitment from Simon himself to attend regular sessions.

With this partnership, Chicken & Blues will be running competitions through social media to win taster sessions at the academy, exclusive merchandise, and the opportunity to meet Simon himself! SFA players will also get the chance to win Chicken & Blues vouchers, awarded by SFA coaches at the end of season awards!

Simon Francis (SFA): ‘The partnership with Chicken & Blues is a great way for us to spread the word to families in the area about the academies, our ethos, and our recently expanded locations. We’re focused on ensuring SFA is a place where children can make new friends whilst enjoying their football. Myself and the family have been fans of Chicken & Blues for years, and so we’re excited to get this brand partnership going!’

Joshua Simons (C&B): ‘Getting kids into sport is something Chicken & Blues is very keen to support, and so partnering with AFC Bournemouth’s captain Simon, and his fast-growing academies, is a fantastic opportunity for us to do just that. Over the next few months, we’ll help spread the word about the great work Simon and his team are doing in the local area with SFA. Simon has been generous enough to offer up some great prizes for exclusive competitions through Chicken & Blues’ social media pages too, so stay tuned and good luck!’
