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.

My daughter has flourished in self confidence and now trains regularly with the amazing coaches at WFA twice a week. She absolutely loves it. Thank you guys!

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.

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.

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

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 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.
