We’re missing our football and seeing our juniors out on the football pitches. To help sharpen their footy skills while they’re at home, our Director of Junior Football – Gary Jenkins – has selected some skill videos for our juniors. 

These individual sessions aim to cover aspects that junior players can do at home, with a parent or family member and can help with their personal development.  Watch the videos and give the skills a go – 2-3 times a week for about 30 minutes each session.
