Kick-Off Your Career

Just Play 16+
The FA Mars Just Play! gives the casual footballer a chance to just turn up to a venue and play football. The Just Play kickabout is recreational football at its best – it’s about turning up for an hour of exercise and a bit of fun. It’s football for those who can’t or don’t want to commit to an eight-month long season of matches and training. For more information visit - Click Here
5-a-Side Centres 16+
If fast, competitive, small-sided and skillful football is your thing then you might be ready for 5-a-side. It can be a great way of getting an intense ‘after work’ work-out with a bunch of friends. And despite the official name it’s often played by four or seven players on each side, so however many of you there are you can still get involved. For more information - Click Here
