WYFC Boys U11 Blue (Hurricanes & Spitfires)
We started training in the 2014-15 season as a mixed age group of Yr 1 and 2 players before splitting into U7 and U8’s for the 2015-16 season.
We train on Thursday afternoons and play 9 a side mini-football on Saturdays in the Testway league. We currently have a large squad of 18 lovely lads representing three different schools and our aim is to provide a fun and safe environment for players to enjoy and learn the game as well as other life skills that can be used both on and off the pitch.
The players are in the foundation stage of learning and are encouraged to be creative in their play. Wherever possible, we try and create an environment of guided discovery where mistakes are an integral part of the learning journey, seeing ourselves very much facilitators and mentors of ‘their game’.
Marcus is close to completing his 2 FA Level 2 coaching qualification and we are also lucky to have a brilliant set of parents, many of which help out on matchday and with coaching. We have also had Josh Blackburn join us who is an U15 player who also helps with coaching as part of his studies and is already a real hit with the team.
Coaches: Marcus Chapman, Danny Cornter, Jez Latimer (also referee), Mark Chambers, Josh Blackburn and Stu Hickman (cameraman)
