Development Squad

The FA don't allow children under 7 to play in matches, but we think it's never too early to start training which helps children by keeping fit, improving social skills, developing coordination, learning the concepts of soccer, building self confidence and, most of all, having fun.  We have two development squads, one for Yr R players and one for Yr 1.


The development squads are for children aged 6 and under. For your child to be eligible, they must have been born on or after 1st September 2013. The development squads are for both boys and girls.

Training & Matches

The development squads train on a Saturday morning from 9am. Training is at Parsonage Meadow .
