Magical Foden Started at Vulcans

Thats right, Phil Foden started his Manchester City journey at Reddish Vulcans JFC’s Soccer School.

In 2007, local Stockport lad Phil, joined Reddish Vulcans Tornados who were managed by our former Chairman Steve Williams team.

Young Phil shone in his Vulcans team along with several of the other players. Together, they went on to win several tournaments, notably our own legendary tournament – The North West Junior Champions League.

Whilst playing for the Tornados, Phil became the focus of the scouts from Manchester City and in 2008, Phil signed for City’s world renowned Academy.

Vulcans President Joe Makin said at the time: –

“Foden… Phil Foden. Remember the name folks, a left foot to die for”

Boy was Joe right.

We have all seen Phil’s career go from strength to strength with Manchester City and England.

Phil recently scored a Hat-Trick against Manchester United along with team-mate Erik Haaland.

Haaland became the first player to score a Hat-Trick since City legend Francis Lee in 1970. Phil emulated that feat, a few minutes later.

Phil and Erik have become a formidable pairing in City’s line-up, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the season.

Everyone at Reddish Vulcans JFC are all extremely proud of Phil and wish him all the best in his career.

So, where did it all start for Phil?
