The under 9’s 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.
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.
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 seven 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.
Whilst not actively recruiting players for the team we are more than happy to speak to anyone interested in joining us. Parents are very welcome to contact Sam via the club secretary on the details below.
