In September 2012, Norwich announced that they were creating a centre of excellence at Brantham, just outside Colchester, in conjunction with Brantham Athletic. Head coach of the new centre is Angelo Harrop, whosigned for Brantham at the beginning of the 2012/13 season but had sicne moved to Wroxham. He is being assisted by Needham Market skipper Pip Boyland and Arron Hall, son of Brantham Athletic manager Tony Hall. All three are Level 2 qualified coaches

Gregg Broughton, head of recruitment for Norwich City’s Academy, said: “From Norwich City’s point of view we are looking to identify boys between 12 and 15 years old in the area. The mechanism we have put in place means once they have been identified they can come along and train at Brantham Athletic, and if they do well they are then invited up to the Academy at Norwich City. With the club going for Category One status – one of only 16 in the country to do so – we wanted to choose a club that sends out the right message to the boys and their parents. Angelo runs his own coaching company and knows the local football scene well. He is a young, enthusiastic and driven coach who we felt was the right person for this opportunity.”

Harrop has previously played for Rushden & Diamonds' U19-21 , Colchester United U8s -U19s, Wales U15's, FC Galakticos in Romania, Leiston FC, Needham Market FC (twice) and Stanway Rovers FC. He has coached at Northampton Town and Stanway Rovers and in the USA with the MLS.

He then spent time with Stanway Rovers as manager and Director of Football. He was also head coach at Brightlingsea Regent in 2016/17. He also played for Stowmarket in 2017/18. He also owns and runs Sports Coaching Specialists since 2011. he has also scouted for Ipswich and played for Leiston and Needham Market.
