Testimonials

WFA is justifiably proud of its reputation with local youngsters and their parents.

Here is just a handful of the many positive comments that we have received.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank Erik and the coaches for all the work and support you’ve given Harry. He has been with WFA since he was 4 years old and his improvement over that period has been phenomenal – tackling seems to be his trademark but his development in skills, passing and confidence to run a bit with the ball have been a real credit to WFA’s coaches. I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the Saturday sessions which Harry has always particularly enjoyed.

Thanks again to WFA and Callum in particular. Harry had an amazing football party at Wilmslow Prep Sports Hall – we have received many thanks from the mums to as the boys all had a great time too! Harry even took his trophy into show-and-tell yesterday!

Charlie had attended WFA sessions sporadically during previous years however, this year he just can’t wait for Saturdays to come around. He is not the most natural footballer around for his age but, WFA ensure that no matter your skill level, all are given an opportunity to develop and have fun all at the same time. There are lots of distractions for kids today but it says much for WFA that they stay top of Charlie’s list of things he wants to do.

My son has tried several coaching organisations claiming to be “elite” or “the best” in the area and they were quite frankly very poor or average at best. Some friends of ours suggested that we go to WFA and we haven’t looked back since. Not only is the coaching fantastic, the whole structure at WFA is very very professional indeed. My son is now totally settled, happy and thriving under the coaches and looks forward to every session (as do we)! He now plays in their JJB Teams and has a whole new circle of friends as a result. His football and confidence have come on a treat. I would absolutely recommend WFA to anyone with a child of any age. Keep up the excellent work WFA! – Debbie x

Sam started playing in Ashdene’s after-school football sessions when he was in Reception Class last year. With no previous football skills, he struggled, but fortunately persevered, as he has continued to excel. With great coaching skills from Tom, in the first few months, followed by even greater coaching methods and skills introduced by Erik this year, Sam found a new confidence.

This year, so far, I have watched my son’s determination and confidence grow and he really gets stuck in now. Tonight I have proudly watched him play in a new four-a-side game in which he was a star striker! He saw the benefits of team playing too. He had the best match of his little life and was still ‘glowing’ with the experience right up until it was time for bed! Thanks WFA – you make a real difference!

Our family moved into Wilmslow 3 years ago. Our son, Alex, had been to other football centres, but was shy and never really got into the spirit of the game. We happened to meet Erik Garner, who took time to talk to Alex and invited him down to WFA to participate one Saturday morning.

To say that Alex took to it is an understatement. The football coaches were very attentive and took time to integrate Alex at first and helped him build his confidence within his peer group. Alex has rarely missed a Saturday morning since and took the opportunity to play in tournaments this year. He has also been invited to play at a Manchester City football Club feeder academy where he has now been for nearly a year.

We are so glad that Erik invited Alex to WFA, which has both integrated Alex into the Community, allowed him to participate in a team sport and has grown his self-confidence.
