The Scarborough resident is part of a tour organised by George Cowie Football in partnership with West Ham United FC.

Marley kicked off his journey by training under the tutelage of West Ham United’s academy coaches. He also enjoyed the opportunity to train with coaches from the English Championship club Watford.

Visits across the English football pyramid

The two-week tour, which started from March 26 and will end on April 7, takes Marley to the heart of English football. He has the chance to witness the training sessions of Manchester United, the club he supports, and their city rivals, Manchester City.

Beyond the Premier League, Marley’s football adventure will extend to the English Championship. He will have opportunities to witness clashes between Watford and Leeds, as well as Leicester City and Norwich City. Additionally, the tour may include a visit to watch Matildas goalkeeper Mackenzie Arnold in action for West Ham United in the Women’s Premier League against Brighton.

Marley Davis’ journey

His footballing journey began at a Peninsula Power holiday program at Bradley Park last year. His exceptional talent and dedication caught the attention of coaches, leading to an invitation to the George Cowie Football National Camp on the Gold Coast. There, he was assessed by West Ham United coaches. His impressive performance secured him a coveted spot on the UK tour.
