We’re delighted to announce that Andre Grey has signed for Brentford FC and becomes our 70th signing to a professional club that has been on our academy programme. We’re proud that we could play a part in supporting his development and journey.


🗣 Andre Grey: “I would like to thank the Kinetic Foundation for the support they have given me over the last year, from the coaching and opportunities given out. It has helped me to regain my confidence and also showed that team spirit, character and camaraderie are massive things in football and life.”

🗣 Dan Hogan, Kinetic Academy Lead Coach: “Andre came in & I could instantly see he was a naturally gifted player, technically he can execute most things. For Andre it was a case of finding a position for him where he can excel with these attributes, he was a major part of our FA Youth Cup run playing at centre back & really grew with confidence throughout the year. Andre has showed plenty resilience after being on trial at several clubs & deserves everything that comes his way on his footballing journey. Good luck Dre!”

Andre was on our academy programme at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace and becomes our third player to sign for Brentford FC this year after Reggie Rose and Omaru King signed for the Premier League club a few months ago.
