Finishing Editor Mohsin Bhatti Ep 5
A group of ex-footballers who have been rejected from football clubs have 7 weeks at a unique football academy, giving them the opportunity to train and play games in a bid they maybe scouted for full time professional football again. Presented by Roman Kemp and filmed with multiple camera’s/fix rig, the real challenge for each player is to look a little deeper in themselves than they may have done before. A team of coaches is on hand to help them with their struggles, both on and off the pitch. Leading the coaches is ex-Watford, Stoke and Burnley striker Gifton Noel-Williams. Other high-profile footballers will coach the team too, including England captain Millie Bright and Manchester United legend Bruno Fernandes.
Mohsin Bhatti who worked on Episode 5 said “I stepped in to do 6 weeks, it was a challenge to pick up stories which needed a lot of work to create an interesting narrative arch for featured players of that episode. Look forward to watching the series with kids!”
