Parking is very limited and we encourage all parents attending junior training to park in adjacent streets NOT next to the park and NOT in the Orchard Spot please.

Junior Training

Welcoming all children in Year R & Year 1.

Our top coaches, Ian Newbury, Tom Nugent & Dan Brown invite all children in year R and year 1 to our junior training sessions at Mallards Way, Downswood every Saturday between 9 am and 10 am. Our coaching mantra is to make learning fun and to make football accessible to all abilities and genders, so if your child is looking to start playing football then why not join our friendly drop-in session for just £2.


Junior training is not only the first step towards, your son or daughter, joining a football team which is normally around Christmas time once they are in Year 1. It's also a great way to build their coordination, fitness, teamwork and make friends. And let's not forget that all-important hours break to socialise with other parents on a Saturday morning!


Ian also works with parents who want to get into coaching to get them ready to take over when their child moves up to Under 7s and beyond, so if you’re interested in coaching please let him know.

You can contact Ian Newbury on 07801 681284 or fill in the form below.
