In all my dealings with Neil Saxton, he has always given me the impression that he is a principled individual who has talked about the players’ best interests in giving them good advice in respect of areas such as education, insurance, financial management and welfare.

I have been with Catalyst4 for over 7 years and I have always had an agency that will take care of anything I need off the field.  Neil has been a great influence on me – he knows football inside and out and he is someone whose words I always listen to.  Most importantly, he has always worked with my best interests and listened to what I have wanted and made it happen.

I have been with Catalyst4 for just over a year now. I cannot thank them enough for their help and guidance, over the past year. Neil has been absolutely brilliant for me with his advice and support. He has had such a positive influence on my career already during the short time he has been looking after me. I can’t recommend Catalyst4 enough! I look forward to working closely with Neil and the Catalyst4 team for many more years.

I’ve been working with Cat4psm for a number of years and I’ve found everyone to be very professional and dedicated in their chosen field’s of expertise. They are relentlessly trying to better themselves and their clients and have helped me both personally and professionally in my time with the company, as I’m sure they have with countless others aswell. I look forward to continuing my affiliation with the company moving forward, which I hope can be mutually beneficial.

I’ve known Neil for a number of years now & can say he’s a whole hearted, honest & hard working man. I don’t just see him as an agent but a close friend and that relationship is invaluable. Through all aspects, on and off the pitch, the care is superb. I can’t thank the team at Cat4lyst enough & would recommend to anyone.

Over the past few years with Catalyst4, I cannot thank them enough for their help and guidance, both on and off the pitch. Neil has always been a positive influence on me – he knows football inside and out and he is someone whose words I always listen to.  Most importantly, he has always worked with my best interests and listened to what I have wanted and made it happen. Catalyst4 have been invaluable with the support both contractually and from a football perspective and I couldn’t recommend them enough!

Matt Green

Footballer, Grimsby Town FC - 2019

When my time at Oxford United came to an end, to further my development and professional career Catalyst4 and Neil Saxton arranged for me to play a season in the Norwegian pro-league which benefited me immensely.    Unfortunately, I picked up a knee injury which required an operation.  With the help of Neil and the Catalyst4 team, I was put in touch with the relevant people within the PFA who helped financially with the medical costs.  Without Catalyst4, my career could have possibly come to an end.

Over the last two years, I have developed a close working relationship with Neil Saxton and the Catalyst4 team.  Whether it be the recruitment of first team players or academy students, Neil and his team are my “go to”.  I am more than happy to fully endorse Neil and his team to anyone looking for support with their own recruitment or player representation needs.

Lee Picton

In the past three years, as an intermediary Neil has established himself as a man to trust in working with young players.  He has worked tirelessly to create opportunities for all his clients, regardless of the position of their career or financial reward.  He is a man of principle and integrity and in his business life he has endeavoured to carry this out with utmost diligence.

In my capacity of Academy Manager, I have found Catalyst to be very professional.  They have the players’ interests at heart and work tirelessly with Clubs to ensure there is clear communication.  I highly recommend Catalyst.

Martin Carter

Head of Academy, Middlesbrough FC -2015

We have first-hand experience of the detailed level of support Catalyst4 provide for our students.  They are transparent and honest and have the best interests of all the students at the forefront of what they do to support and help.  Catalyst4 genuinely care for each individual player’s development and provide a bespoke support programme to meet their individual needs.

Martin Scott

Managing Director, Improtech Soccer -2015

I have over many years had a very good working relationship with Catalyst4.  I have always found Catalyst to conduct themselves in a professional manner with a co-operative attitude.  They have always assisted in helping young players achieve their aims, but are honest in their assessment and of what suitable avenues are available to their clients.
