Ashley Sammons – Football Star and FootieBugs Manager

Ashley Sammons is not only the manager at FootieBugs, but the former professional footballer is currently playing for his local team Solihull Moors in the Vanarama National Conference.

The former Birmingham City professional footballer made his first senior appearance at the age of just 17 and has also played at international level for England. However, a horrible injury leading to two years without playing football, cut short his promising career.

But after signing for Solihull Moors in January of this year, Ash has had appearances in the Conference Team of the Week and also captained the Moors in a recent 4-1 away win over North Ferriby United, where he picked up the supporters’ Man of the Match.

Ash is not only working to help Solihull Moors reach the football league for the first time in it’s history, but also to help discover the next generation of talent in the West Midlands.

Since opening the FootieBugs Academy last year, just under 40% of players within the academy have been either scouted or signed by professional football clubs, including Birmingham City, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion.

FootieBugs not only runs the FootieBugs Academy, but also run successful holiday camps, community classes and a number of curriculum classes in schools across the Solihull and Birmingham area, including; Ulverley Primary School, Monkspath Primary School and St Alphege Infant and Junior Schools.

FootieBugs is part of The Bugs Group – a specialist in children’s fitness.
