Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


We originally had cancelled our courses due to the Covid crisis. We are now pleased to announce that we are now able to offer new after school and holiday  courses , which fully comply fully with Government Covid guidelines. 


Thanks to a very recent update of the Government's DfE Covid guidelines for Out of School Settings [OOSS], we are now able to proceed.

It is important that parents should note the following:


Parents MUST COLLECT CHILDREN PROMPTLY after each session and observe social distancing on arrival/departure

Children must also bring a pair of clean gloves to each session, so they can all enjoy a goalkeeping experience during the skills sessions

Children will still bring packed lunches to eat during the courses and may bring wrapped snacks and a drink for break. They should remove any gloves and hand sanitise before doing so, with their own, labelled sanitiser

[The sharing of goalkeeping gloves will not be allowed]


Parents will not be able to remain on site during the sessions, for reasons of both Child Protection and mutual health security

Social distancing will apply at all times.  We will have loads of games and matches, which will be skill, space creation and interception based. PLUS Our ever-popular PENALTY SHOOT OUT and CHAMPIONS LEAGUE COMPETITIONS WILL BE UNAFFECTED!!

Parents are to keep all contact phones switched on. Covid related social distancing protocol will apply to all injuries, mishaps and potential illness. You will be contacted in case of injury or any signs of illness and be expected to pick up immediately

Children should not attend if they are displaying any symptoms of ill health

The groups will be limited in accordance with the guidance, therefore late applications will not be accommodated and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis

Fortunately, when I played football in France, we were continually immersed in training 'matches', which involved interception only, minmising contact and tackling. I'm sure that the children will enjoy these along with the champions league matches, penalties and other [safe] skill based staples


In addition, each player will receive an ENGRAVED SKILLS AWARD TROPHY for course completion

Looking forward to a blast of footie fun.
