"The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job in hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the very best of ourselves at all times "



The 3v2 Soccer Academy was born and created in the October of 2010 by Roddy Maughan and Murdo Steven and some 3 months later and after a lot of hard work, sleepless nights and excitement, officially opened its doors for the very first time on January 10th 2011.

The boys first met in the summer of 2004 whilst working as football coaches at a holiday soccer camp and an instant friendship and coaching partnership was formed, one that only continues to grow to this day. 3 Years later in 2007, and whilst on a football coaching course, the first ever conversation about creating their own coaching company took place between the boys. What started as an innocent and random comment soon became a serious topic of conversation that ultimately lasted 4 years!

Each time they spoke the reality of their coaching dream became more and more believable. It was to prove such a pivotal moment for them both.

Endless discussion about what they would do and how they would do it, and the challenge of not only offering something different, but more importantly offering it in their own unique way, both from a footballing point of view as coaches, and that as people, it was only a matter of time before that ambition was realised.

4 years on and with all planning done, the new footballs, training cones and bibs in tow, the 3v2 Soccer Academy was out on the road and the boys met its first parents and coached its first children. It was a special feeling and a real reward for all the hard work in taking that first big step. It was a proud moment indeed.

Since that first day, January 10th 2011, the Soccer Academy has continued to go from strength to strength and operates throughout the city of Edinburgh 7 days a week, working in partnership with so many different people and coaching over 1000 children and adults in the process. It had been a remarkable first year and with the help of family, close friends and the on-going support of some fantastic parents, so much was successfully achieved.

With many more things still to come, Roddy and Murdo hope to continue what has so far been a brilliant personal success story, one that they hope you will all continue to enjoy with them. It has so far been incredible!

Thanks for all your support. Here's to the next chapter...
