11 to 100 – Male & Female (all abilities)
The youth football club was established some 10 years ago and it was done with the ethos that no matter what your skill level or ability if you were prepared to put your commitment into coaching sessions we as a club would support you, provide you with the opportunity to play football and most importantly be part of a team. This philosophy underpins our values as a club still today. Although success is an important motivating force for any organisation this is only achieved by the commitment and encouragement provided by our team of managers, coaching staff and above all the players. This is something we have in abundance! The Club has now grown from its humble existence of 1 team to a very strong position of 18 teams ranging from mixed teams from U6’s to U13’s, boys only at U14’s and 15’s, girls only teams at U9’s, U12’s and U14’s and our disability teams covering various inclusive age groups as well as a new adult’s disability team.
