Kickin'' about with Sportsround
Sportsround spent the day filming at The Harefield Academy to find out a little more about our unique and successful link with Watford FC - they even want to come back to school now they've visited us!
Talking to junior scholars, Tom Rosenthal and Alfie Young, about life at THA
Jon, the Sportsround presenter, and the crew got to learn what we're all about at The Harefield Academy, talking to our Watford FC coaches, players and management and having a kick about around The Academy.

First stop was the junior scholars' training session on The Academy pitches where the SR team spoke to Nick Cox, Assistant Academy Manager, about his thoughts on our one-of-a-kind setup.

Then it was on to Watford's training ground, where our senior scholars train alongside, and play with, the first team. The crew caught up with Academy graduate, Marvin Sordell, who the weekend previous had scored for Watford in their 6-1 win against Millwall and asked him what it was like to go all the way and become a pro after attending The Harefield Academy. They also had a chat to Sixth Form student and Youth team player, Greg Deer, about his experiences at THA.
