The Fun Football programme is offered to all players from U9 grade up, who are not part of the Skill Centre. This term we are also accepting expressions of interest from U7-U8 grade players who may be interested in joining.
These sessions aim to build strong foundation skills for junior and youth footballers, providing an opportunity to enhance their first touch, passing and dribbling skills and increase their basic understanding of football. Working on the individual player development as well the team environment.
This programme will be run by Gary Jenkins, our Director of Junior Football, supported by Talent Centre coaches.
Open to all players interested in developing or further enhancing their goalkeeping skills from U9 grade up, these sessions provide an introduction to the core goalkeeping skills to provide confidence to our young goalkeepers.
