GETTING READY FOR THE MOVE TO JUNIOR FOOTBALL FOR THE 2017/18 SEASON IN THE BRAND NEW SOUTHAMPTON YOUTH DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE.
This season we have a number of new challenges to work on as a team - bigger pitches, bigger goals, 9-a-side format and even offsides! So a steep learning curve for us all but some very exciting times ahead!
With a really talented, skillful squad of players, our team always tries to ensure we work as hard as we can for ourselves, each other and our supporters!
Although we all love to win a game, results are not what drives us but getting the best from each player individually and helping them all to improve as footballers and as human beings!
Coaches for our team have worked hard on their personal development as well with FA Levels 1 and 2 plus FA youth modules having been completed. All coaches are CRB checked as well as Safeguarding and First Aid trained with loads of enthusiasm for the game and the development of the children in our team.
We have an absolutely fantastic bunch of boys who are all obsessed with their football and a great bunch of mates!
Half of the team have been playing together since year R at school and there are some great friendships among all players - old and new.
Our ethos as a team is to give everyone an equal chance, to support each other but most of all, to enjoy every minute of the football we play!
Manager, Tony Swift
