The Under 12s run two teams, one playing on a Saturday in the North East Hants league and the other on a Sunday in the Surrey Primary League. Mike Ollington and David Marlow coach the teams. The under 12s are all about team spirit and ensuring that players simply enjoy their football and play as much as they possibly can. Training is held every Wednesday evening and is aimed at improving fitness, individual skills and techniques but most importantly developing the playing strength of the team as a whole.
The spirit of the team is excellent and continues to get stronger. The players come from different schools and different backgrounds but this team has brought them all together to become friends first and foremost as well as team mates.
The coaches encourage a sense of positional play and a fluent passing game even at this young age and huge steps have been made over the past season in regards to overall team performances. The progression of the Under 12’s is very exciting and long may it continue.
