Protec Football Academy founder Pete Edwards began his football career over 25 years ago and has worked full time at 1st team level as part of the backroom coaching staff at Arsenal, Nottingham Forest, Manchester City and Reading before moving on to coaching Academy football.
Pete formed Protec in 1995 with one main aim in mind: To offer talented youngsters the opportunity to maximise their achievements both on and off the pitch, with a unique football training and education package designed to develop the skills required in today’s fast-paced professional game.

“ Before the Wenger “this man changed football fitness” myth, there was Pete Edwards. Introduced modern football fitness, nutrition into English game with NFFC ‘93. A bigger architect of promotion to 3rd in Prem than Clark, Pearce, or me. Pros, use him, he’s the Godfather.” - Stan Collymore (Twitter March 19, 2020) Ex Liverpool, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Leicester City Striker
