Lets have some fun and enjoy the season

We have played in the EDMSL and Southampton Tyro League as a Team. The team have now moved to the City of Southampton Sunday Youth League for 2017/18 Season. This set of lads have been together since 2016/17 season and have developed as a team and individuals in a fun safe environment. As a Youth team the emphasis is on player development and balancing the need to have results that the lads want. All coaches are FA Safeguarding, CRC, Emergency Aid, Minimum of FA level 1, and Register FA Licensed Coaches club members. Lead Coach Chris Hicks is FA Level 3, FA Youth Award with Basc First Aid and Child Walfare Officer trained. If you are interested in development as a player in a progressive team please contact us.

We like to play a positive passing style of play looking to attack quickly and defended in numbers.
Our players are young people who are maturing into Adulthood that at all times should be respected. They have the will to develop and learn the game and are willing to try new ideas not just in Football sessions but other sports as well.

How we coach
We are here to develop the player to the maximum of their ability without the pressure of winning force on them but understanding they will soon move into Adult Football and have now introduced team selection based on performance.
Players are now starting their transition to Adulthood and we are mindful and respectful of the changes going on in their life's.
All session are planned and reviewed
Players will be able to :
Play to their best of thier ability.
Control the ball in play under pressure.
Make their own decision.
Understand scanning principles.
Understand triggers in a game.
Principles of Play.

Please read our Match Reports to see how the lads are progressing this season !!!
