Philosophy

The club believe in ‘Football for All’, which means no matter what level of football the players play at, the club will provide the best coaching for that group of players to help and nurture them at the level their at and help them progress if they want that help.

The coaches work to a club syllabus that is tailored to each age group and team and we aim to have all teams playing in a similar playing style, with formations to suit the players and their ability level.

From our youngest age group players are encouraged to get use to the ball at their feet and to also get use to using all parts of the foot to control the ball and are encouraged to use both feet. The coaches do this by playing various fun drills and small sided games in an environment where players can make mistakes in fact they are encouraged to make them, so the players learn and grow. Players are encouraged to ask questions and are asked questions during the sessions to help them progress mentally as well as technically. So on match days players are able to make decisions that impact the game in a positive way.

As the players get older various aspects of the game are taught to the players that are relevant to their ability and the type of football they are playing (7v7 / 9v9 / 11v11) with more in game coaching that includes the Whole part whole coaching method, this help the players with there match day game technique and decision making.

At the club we always look long term not at the here and now in terms of development and the club are NOT driven by results. The level of coaching we offer and the right player work ethic naturally produces the right results.
