WUFA member receives US Scholarship

Congratulations to Jacob Robb on his scholarship to an American college, Jacob left the Waikato University Football Academy last week to take up an opportunity at Worcester Academy in Massachusetts. We wish him all the best and we will watch his progress with great interest. Jacob joined the academy this year and was also involved in the Waibop youth squad last summer. Jacob is a hard working striker with the ability to hold the ball up well to interlink with midfield, he is also a striker that makes intelligent runs, with these attributes we are sure he will excel in the America game.

wufa logo low resAfter a few months absence the WUFA homepage is back! Unfortunately the site was hacked and a huge amount of data was lost, so we had to start from scratch to get the site back up and running. So here we are, hopefully bigger and better with more informative pages to let you know exactly what WUFA is and what we’re about. So far its been stellar year and its absolutely flown by, and we are now taking applications for next year.  For any queries contact us on wufa.info@gmail.com or visit our FB page https://www.facebook.com/UniversityofWaikatofootballAcademy.
