Novantae Photography is proud to be Club Photographer and media partner of Edusport Academy - a residential football academy for young French footballers, based in Scotland.

Edusport Academy was founded in 2011 with the aim of helping talented young French footballers to develop their skills in football and the English language.

In 2014, Edusport Academy joined the semi-professional South of Scotland League in the sixth tier of the Scottish football league system, becoming the first private football academy in the world to operate a team in a FIFA-recognised senior league. Edusport Academy made further Scottish football history in a league match against Creetown in September 2014, when they first fielded a team composed entirely of French nationals. Edusport Academy won the 2016–17 South of Scotland League title to gain promotion to the Lowland League in the fifth tier of Scottish football.

In 2018, Edusport Academy announced plans to separate the senior team from the academy and attract a fanbase by launching a new online membership scheme, Our Football Club. Members will have voting and decision-making powers, including a say on choosing a new name, crest and colours for the team. Our Football Club aim to reach the Scottish Premiership by 2025.

At the start of the 2019–20 season Edusport Academy rebranded the club as the Caledonian Braves FC following a vote online by members of the Our Football Club.com project.
