If I could like this post a million times I would. I've only just got my boy into attending sessions on a Saturday morning (he's 6) and he's enjoying it (to be fair Darren Ward the coach is brilliant with the kids).

I've seen and heard some right horror stories.
Really hope you are still positive about kids football 3 or 4 years down the line, when he will be all of 9 or 10.

Rollercoaster, buckle yourself in.
Always will be. It's a tough gig working in centres of excellence/academies and an even tougher one outside of that in local football. He'll have whatever he wants in terms of that. At this age it's about the building blocks so he can try all sorts. He's left footed and can whack it so he does have an advantage 😂

Unfortunately the head coach seems like one of those types who thinks that u8's football is about winning rather than making sure the kids are all having fun and developing their skills. There are far, far too many of them about.
