A great day of soccer as the combined NBEFC Liverpool, Ajax and Chelsea participated in a playdate hosted by Chico State University and their Assistant Head Coach Bertin, a much beloved former NBEFC legend. The boys all played very well and even got to meet the Chico State University Soccer Team.
A heart felt thanks to Coach Bertin, Coach Bailey and Coach Morgan for facilitating a fantastic day of great Soccer and memories.
What a weekend!!!! NBEFC U19 Juventus won both games this weekend at the NPL Showcase!
Saturday was a hard fought victory over Mustang U19 Barcelona with Eron Hernandez scoring the game winner in the 85th minute to seal the victory.
Sunday found the boys down 0-3 at the half, only to score 4 goals in the final 20 minutes for the 4-3 victory! Eron Hernandez scored a beautiful free kick from 25 yards straight out to open the scoring. Christian Diaz headed in the next two to tie up the game, and Francisco Martinez slotted home the game winner in the 90th minute to cap the comeback off.
The boys will look to rest up and get healthy for their State Cup Quarter final game next Sunday in Modesto. We are very proud of not only the results, but the style and class the boys played with this weekend.

Over the past 6 years NBEFC has been committed to helping players achieve their goals both on and off the field. We have helped place several student athletes in College, as well as placed several players in top identification programs, PDP, IDP, ID2 and ODP to name a few. We are a club that focuses on player development, long term results and believes in every child
NBEFC has given out over 40 thousand dollars in financial assistance to players over the last 5 years, and not just to our top level players. We believe that money should never be a reason that a child can’t participate in our program, and we work year round to insure that this stays true.
NBEFC Coaching Staff
Our coaching Staff is comprised of former and current Semi Pro and College coaches, as well as former Professional players. We strive to provide not only top level trainings, but are one of the few club that offers free tutoring and college advisory programs. We do not see our club as having many teams with separate goals, but rather a club made of one team with one goal.
