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 came back from football at Wilmslow Prep School and thought I would send a quick email to let you know what a good job your coaches are doing. I am sure you know this more than most, but always nice to hear it I expect. Your coaches were around after the training and are always more than happy to chat to parents. I mentioned to one of them that the smaller boys did less skills training than the older ones and he explained to me he was working on space awareness and he had split the pitch into 2 sides and you had to stay on your own side (I am sure you know what I mean), and that for the younger age group this is a really good skill to have. The passing and other stuff can come later but awareness of space (rather than all the kids chasing the ball all over the pitch) is a great thing to teach this age group. This completely made sense to me and once again I can rest assured knowing that you and your lads are brilliant. This is the great thing about WFA, we can always talk to you and the coaches about anything… football, training, best place for a decent night out, hangover cures, etc.

We absolutely love WFA and all the coaches, keep up the good work.

I just want to wish you all the best with WFA and the team. You have an amazing set up and I am sure you will continue on an already successful journey!! I am off to the States next week (Louie will be joining me in September) so I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the rest of the coaches for all the hard work and effort you guys have put into Louie’s football development. He thoroughly enjoys WFA and is enjoying his football with Wilmslow Town. The nuturing and guidance that WFA also offers is invlauable in a child’s development. If I can be of any help in the future or you want a tie-up in America just let me know. Good luck ….to the best coaches in the business!!

Ian started WFA at afterschool club. We then took him along to Pownall on a Saturday morning where we met Erik and the rest of the coaching team. They made him feel very welcome – it is such a friendly soccer school and he has made lots of new friends through going. He very rarely misses a Saturday morning. He has had the opportunity to play in two tournaments in recent weeks and he really enjoyed this. He also plays on a Monday night for the feeder team to the Manchester City Academy. All this through joining WFA! His confidence and ability are growing all the time due to the encouragement and commitment of all the coaches.

Just to say thank you for Theo’s birthday party on Sunday 11th. They all had a great time and Alex was fantastic with them. Theo thinks his trophy and sweatshirt (which hasn’t been off his back) are fab. He felt very special.

Matthew’s confidence and ability grew as a result of attending Wilmslow Football Academy. I think this is due to the friendly atmosphere of the training sessions and the placement of the children into teams of comparable quality and skills. The sessions were relaxed and fun with the required amount of discipline to keep things under control. The children were constantly praised and encouraged under an environment where they were allowed to develop at their own pace. The look of delight on Matthew’s face when at one of the training sessions he was selected as player of the week and I as a parent was very proud of him and I think the reward he received for his efforts certainly spurred him on even more.

I would just like to say that our whole family absolutely loves WFA. The atmosphere and the standard of coaching on a Saturday morning at Pownall is fantastic. Brad can’t wait to go every week. He is up at 6am, dressed and ready to go. He has made so many new friends and he loves the coaches! We have tried a couple of other football schools in the area but none of them even come close to WFA. Everyone looks so happy and you are made to feel so welcome. Brad used to be so shy but thanks to the lads at WFA he has found the confidence to develop himself as a person and a footballer. Keep up the good work everyone at WFA!
