International Footballer Becomes Kixx Academy Owner

23rd March 2022

We are absolutely delighted to welcome Montseratt International footballer, Marshall Willock (pictured above), as a Kixx Franchisee.

21 year old, Marshall, has become the proud franchise owner of Kixx Solihull and its academies will be launched early April 2022. 

Even though hot prospect, Marshall, is still in the very early stages of his football career, he has enjoyed playing for a number of National Football League clubs across England and even in Finland.

Incredibly in 2019, Marshall received a call up to the Montseratt National team and has received two additional call ups since, playing against teams including El Salvador and St Lucia. 

What an honor to be called up by your country!!!!

Whilst we are on the subject of awesome footballers, Marshall isn’t the only one making waves for Kixx in the Midlands. 

This part of the UK has a strong footballer presence for Kixx Franchisees, with pro footballer, Martin Riley, owning Kixx Wolverhampton and Kixx Stourbridge.

However more recently in March, we also witnessed the launch of Kixx Coventry which is owned by, Alfie Bates, a pro footballer with Finnish team, Veikkausliiga club SJK.

Alfie had an incredible launch with almost 200 children attending the Kixx Coventry discovery days and the reaction so far has been humbling. 

Alfie said:

“The launch process was really exciting and I can’t thank Kixx HQ for all their help, guidance and support so far, its been an exciting journey to date.

“To see so many children having fun, making friends and being active at Kixx Coventry academies is just incredible and it’s a real privilege to have such a positive impact in the community of Coventry.

“Our teams are really excited to pass on our skills and experiences to children across coventry and it feels so rewarding to do so.”

We are all looking forward to sharing more of the Kixx journeys from both Marshall and Alfie in future blog updates so stay tuned!
