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 had to drop you a note to let you know just how much I am enjoying your ladies football training on Thursday evenings. The freedom and empowerment I have experienced since the course started is amazing and such good value for only £5.00. Thursdays used to be a very dull day with not much to look forward to, you know, get home from work, help kids with homework, cook dinner, same old mealtimes etc. etc. But now…..all day I cannot wait until 7 o’clock. I literally cannot concentrate on my work during the day, the clock ticks so slowly, it seems to take forever. But then, at 4.30 I’m released from my torture and I dash home (I can’t believe I have not been caught speeding). Nothing is too much trouble as the countdown to Footy begins. Shin Pads On, Socks On, Shirt On, Tie Hair Back and then finally…………….she goes out, I put the kids to bed, crack open a tinnie and stick Sky Sports on………bliss!

I just wanted to let you know that Daniel has had some recent success with disability football. He was asked to trial for the Cheshire mixed disability U16 squad based in Knutsford and following this, the North West Regional Partially sighted U16 squad (based in Preston). Happily he was successful with both….. and is now playing loads of football! The training programme is superb and he is enjoying every second.

I can honestly say that without WFA on Saturday mornings and managing to get into the Wilmslow Town team a couple of seasons ago, which really boosted his confidence, he would not have had the same opportunity. Thank-you for all your help with him in the past, it has been invaluable.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
