The under 8’s enjoyed their inaugural season as a Sunday League Team in 2017/18 in the Bournemouth Youth Football U7 League. Amongst some very good sides, the boys more than held their own with some fantastic performances and have come a long way since their very first game as U6’s together. The team are often watched by scouts from both AFC Bournemouth and Southampton FC who have regularly complimented the boys on their style of play , camaraderie and team spirit. This extends to everyone associated with the team including our supportive and respectful parents, friends and family. A number of the boys have also represented local academy sides and/or are training with AFC Bournemouth at their ID and Pre Academy Centres.
Everyone is very much looking forward to the 2018/19 season, this year.
The majority of the squad have been playing and enjoying football together since the very early age of 2/3 where they first met at the Little Kickers Football Academy / Franchise.
Consequently the boys have good technical ability for their age and everyone associated with the team are really looking forward to seeing them develop further this season and beyond.
Chris Amey (Manager) has over 35 years’ experience of playing and managing both mens and boys football at various levels. He holds a L1 FA Coaching badge as does his assistant manager, Gary Wagner. Both are avid supporters of the game and hold season tickets at AFC Bournemouth and Chelsea FC respectively.
As well as playing in the BYFL this year, the boys will be playing (as a team) at Littledown Sports Centre on their 3G pitches in the U9 Littledown Juniors League every Sat morning between 0845 & 0945hrs over the winter and spring terms. They will be playing two 25 minute matches followed by Training afterwards from 10 – 11am.
BYFL matches are played on Sundays in a five a side format and predominantly kick off at 10am.
The boys can be found playing their home games on the ‘Pavillion/ Cricket ground’ side of Burley Road.
