Welcome to the U9's Yellows
This year’s U8’s squad is the first ever squad that I have taken charge of as a coach and what a great group of players I have inherited. From our first training session I have been nothing but amazed at the ability and the attitude of the players. Be it a training session or a match day on a Saturday, the work ethic shown by such young players is outstanding. As the cliché goes, our U8’s give 110% week in week out and this alone has gotten us some great results already this season. Throw in the technical ability that these players possess and we really do have a great squad. From incredible goalkeeping to solid defenders, all the way to skilful forwards that can provide goals from anywhere on the pitch – our squad keeps ticking with all these cogs in motion and without any of the above, we wouldn’t be half the squad we are.
I am excited for the rest of the season and to see the continued development in each and every single player as the year progresses. Taking what’s been said into consideration, it is all meaningless if one important thing is missing. Fun. Our U8’s thrive on enjoying their football, and playing with a smile on their faces. Already this season I have seen some great football which has resulted in huge smiles from all our players. I’ve also seen great positivity from our players, which has resulted in football that has left me speechless on the side line. Each player can be proud of their start to the season, and I hope we can continue on this path in our first season together.
Once again this is a great squad, with immense work ethic along with outstanding ability. Keep it up!
