Under 8's Manager: Oli Fordham
Coaches : Oli Fordham, Darrell Collins
The primary focus at U8’s level is to ensure the players get an enjoyable introduction to match football. Our goal is to develop core skills and self esteem whilst building a knowledge of the laws of the game.
After a frustrating spring/early summer the team have done incredibly well since their return to training. During preseason we have had some great fun at our football training sessions, taking initial steps towards becoming a coherent team that’s developing foundation football skills based on the FA four corner model. We look forward to our first season ahead.
Our midweek evening training sessions take place at Winchester House School on the all weather pitches and we play our league home fixtures at the Manor Road Recreational Field.
We are extremely grateful to 3Q Sports for sponsoring our match day kit, and especially Brackley based Oxford Electrical Installation Services for providing us with training tracksuit tops, raincoats & hoodies.
A special thank you to all the volunteers who help out at training sessions and matches. We are also incredibly lucky you have a very supportive parents group, thanks for your support & the encouragement you give the players on match days!
