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.

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.

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 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.

Joe and Oliver love Saturdays so they can go to WFA, they love all the coaches, and they think Erik who runs the football is so funny, they do really enjoy it and they leave every time with a smile on their face, so that says it all. FAB guys keep up the good work xx

My son loves his football and we have recently moved into the area. In the past 6 months we have tried several coaching organisations locally but felt uneasy about the quality of coaching and the lack of attention we were receiving.

Some friends recommended WFA to us and we checked them out. I have to say they are amazing! They offer a wide range of sessions both on Saturday mornings and in the evennings and the standard of coaching is excellent. Erik and his team can’t do enough to make us feel welcome and that helped settle my son in perfectly. He has blossomed since starting at WFA and now plays for one of their JJB teams where he spotted by a scout from Man United! It’s helped his confidence and he’s made loads of new friends.

We know we made the right decision taking him to WFA and can’t speak highly enough about their care and attention.

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!

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!!
