Community news

Your squad of super-qualified, superhero coaches will include the ‘Very Dynamic R’s’: first-teamers Sophie O’Rourke, Katie Rood and Rhian Cleverly – plus a number of other star players, week-to-week.

Sessions will be 10am to 11.30am each Saturday (plus special school holiday slots – keep your eye out for those on our web site and Twitter) and open for all your 6 to 13-year-old kids.

The emphasis will be on FUN (with an orange football).


If you want to sign your little guys up as a ROOKIE KICKER, just hit ‘Buy Tickets’ now.

£10 a head

Age group: all kids 6 to 13 y/o

Tickets: will be sold in advance blocks, month to month. So, you’ll be signing up for (say) every Saturday morning session in October. (This month we have an extra Saturday in the block, the last Saturday of September – meaning x6 Sessions in all for £60.) We will be publishing future monthly blocks shortly, so you will be able to book ahead should you wish.

Capacity: each session will accommodate a max of x40 kids – and tickets will be issued on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Footwear: please ensure your kids come kitted out to play with 3G appropriate footwear – no flat sole trainers, and no soft ground studs!

Kit and misc: kids should wear football appropriate kit – including shin pads. Please furnish them with a big water bottle for refreshment!

Medical (IMPORTANT!): if your kids have any medical conditions that require the use of (for example) inhalers or epi-pens, then please ensure they bring them along to the sessions each week. Please ensure that coaches are made aware. Unfortunately, we will be unable to admit any kids that have declared a condition on their booking form, but have not brought their supplies along.

Admission to each session is via ticket only – purchased here, via this site. Once you’ve bought your ticket you will receive a confirmation email. Please bring this with you, each session – so that our coaches can ‘check in’ your kids via our online register.
