Soccer School

The Fletcher Moss Soccer School is the foundation of the club. Taking in children aged from 3 to 11 years of age. The football training is normally carried out on Mersey Bank playing fields on a Saturday morning. Due to the wet weather, we have been forced to move the training to Manchester Active Centre on Denmark Rd. Hulme M15 6FG. There are two sessions scheduled from 9.30 until 10.30 are for years 3, 4 & 5 and Nursery, Reception, Years 1 & 2 train from 11.00 to 12.00noon.

The training sessions follow a natural pathway of development for the children and is intended to nurture their skills and abilities. Each week the soccer school will stage a different skills session, practicing; Passing , Shooting, Dribbling, ABC’s (agility, balance & coordination). Probably the most important skill taught is the skill of listening.

Season 2019/20 saw more players being signed to professional clubs. Manchester City signed 1 player, 6 players went to Manchester United, 1 to Crew Alexander, 2 to Blackpool FC. We wish all our players the very best for the future.

This follows on from players who have been successful from the soccer school, players who began playing on a Saturday morning on Mersey Bank have been asked to sign academy contracts with ‘Premier League’ clubs. Troy Tarry signed for Stoke City but has subsequently left by mutual agreement and is now doing very well at his beloved Manchester City and Maison Halliday, Brandon Dyer, Felix Chester, Prince Moyo and Corey Edwards (pictured below with Oliver at the soccer school 2 years ago) all signed for Manchester United.
