The Boys Development section was set up some 7 – 8 years ago by Berni Borsberry and Peter Robinson in order to ensure the sustainability of the football club.
We take boys from 4-7 years old. The emphasis is on Development not only of Football skills but also confidence building, teamwork and generally socialising with other young people with a similar interest. The popularity of the development section has meant that we have produced teams representing the Club at all ages up to Under 18, many of which have enjoyed great success over the years with their teams and some that have gone on to have success in the professional game, as we have representatives at Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Newcastle academies.
Boys Development Head Coach Gary Taylor is Level 3 qualified, with both FA Level 2 and the FA Youth Award. All our coaches are CRB checked and hold valid 1st Aid and Safeguarding Children certificates.
Training takes place on Saturday mornings from 10am - 11am.
