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 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!

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!

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 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.

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.

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

- Sam

We booked a WFA party for my son two years running! Max had an excellent time at the party. It was very well organized and the coach was excellent with the boys. The facilities at the club are perfect – just what we want for a group of 10 year old boys! The party is a good price too – it seems great value when we get to use the club house facilities too. The kids went home saying that they loved the party and want one of their own! Thanks again Erik and we will see you on Saturday at Pownall!
