Friday 6th March 2015, Carshalton England: Players from Carshalton FC Academy were treated to a unique and unforgettable experiance as the Nike Trial Van rolled into town. A privilege normally only reserved for professional clubs and their academies, the Trial Van provides players with the opportunity to wear and test Nike's latest and most innovative footwear.
As part of their Nike Partner Club benefits each player from the carshalton Academy tested the 4 different silos of boot maximising the different characteristics.
Mercurial for Explosive Speed
Hypervenom for Deadly Agility
Magista for Unstoppable Play Making
Tiempo for Dominating Touch
The experiance allowed the players to have an insight to how Nike work with their professional players and provide them with the right footwear to improve their game.
The Nike Partner Club initiative serves to raise the standards at grassroots level and the commitment to offering Partner Clubs experiances like the Trial Van reinforces their goal of raising the profile of the grassroots game.
