We are giving young players their first formal experience of ‘the beautiful game’ and it must be fun for all involved and a chance to form new friendships.
Understanding what a team is and how to participate in a team is a valuable life lesson and our players will learn how to work together to achieve a common goal.
Our players will have a mixed experience of football and playing abilities but every player will grow more confident in their own way and develop their skills.
