Under 9's Manager: Owen Shepherd
Coach: Craig McIlwain
At U9’s level we are focusing on developing core skills and building confidence in game play including understanding the laws of the game
Football at this age is about fun and our coaches ensure that the children enjoy their football in a team environment
The under 9’s are looking forward to an exciting season. The children are developing a real sense of ‘team’ and continue to develop their footballing skills. We currently train on Wednesdays at Winchester House and have our home matches at Brackley Leisure Centre on Saturdays.
Moving up to 7 a side is allowing us to focus more on positional play, passing awareness and team play. Every player regularly plays in all positions to build up their understanding of the game. Our Saturday games in the Witney and District League allow us to put into practice what we work on in our midweek training sessions – and aim to improve week on week. We have a committed squad of players who enjoy their football, want to work hard to improve and, most importantly, get on brilliantly on and off the pitch
