Wyatt was outstanding right from the start today, He showed great confidence and determination to display his improved skill's and ability when on the ball. We worked on passing and finding spaces, along with balance and co-ordination during the drills. Wyatt was great at using both feet and demonstrated this throughout the session. Very well Done!!

Saturday academy comments

“I just wanted to let you know that Mitch has really improved through your team's coaching & most importantly he loves the sport. I've seen the dedication that all of your coaches put in and how they inspire to make football fun while coaching players of all standards. I just thought you should know it is really appreciated, even if it does mean that I now can't get the ball off Mitch when we play!!”
(Alex Keay)

“Liam has improved out of sight and more importantly, is enjoying the fun”
(Brett & Catherine Downes)

“You would expect the sessions to be well structured but what really is impresive is how aware of the children you are. You always seem to notice when an incident has happened and are able to get children back in to the session again. It really is lovely to see and be part of”

(Rachel Cunningham-Day)

"Target football is great for my little boy. The groups of children he plays with are a lovely bunch and made him feel welcome. The coaches really care for the children and make sure they learn new skills but have fun at the same time which, is very important when they are young. 90 minutes of exercise, team building, learning skills and enjoyment - what better way to get your child to spend a Saturday morning?"

(Paula Longega)

Very well organised set up, my child loves it. The coaches bring their enthusiasm onto the pitch and really engage with the children.

(John Burt)

My child Ethan looks forward to his Saturday morning football every week. He has progressed so much since he first started. The coaches are patient, understanding and present a varied training regime every week focusing on a different skill set. We have tried many other local and professional set ups, but Ethan likes this one best.

(Neil Abbott)

"My little boy Adam loves his Saturday mornings at Target, great atmosphere and very well run"

(Andrew Russell)

"The Football Academy has given both of our boys the opportunity to improve their skills and grow in confidence!! The coaches are always supportive but know when they can get more out of them. A great atmosphere even when the heavens open!!"

(Caroline Craigie)

"Joshua really enjoys going to football on a Saturday morning. There’s always different activities each week and the children are all kept busy and entertained the whole time. I would recommend this club to all my friends"

(Suzi Baxter)

"Great coaching, relaxed, a perfect way to spend a Saturday morning…. and a fantastic bacon sandwich!!"

(Paul Kelly)

"My youngest son has just started attending Target’s SMFA following in his older brothers’ footsteps who benefited greatly from the high standard of coaching and friendly atmosphere"

(Barry Sawyer)

"Our son looks forward to football every week and has learnt lots of great new skills in a friendly but professional environment. Well done to a great team that runs the academy!! A wonderful activity for all, and very confidence building for the boys. Plus the fact that there is great food and tea from the cafe and therefore a wonderful atmosphere for the parents too!!"

(Ed Sent)

“I just wanted to say how much my son, Findlay, has enjoyed his sessions at Target. His skills have come on a storm, and it's been a great confidence booster for him. Many thanks"

(Jeff Suthons)
