In our eighth episode of The Attacking Two Podcast, we were happy to be able to welcome in special guest Dan McCarthy from CFC150, who told us all about his journey through the academy ranks in English football which eventually led to him ending up at Cobham and training and playing with among the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Josh McEachran and many more at the U14-U16 level.

Dan tells us his fascinating story about the struggle of making it as a Chelsea academy player, his experience of putting on the blue shirt, moving to the US and becoming a professional coach.
