Under 9’s

Darren Marsden – Manager

Gabe McSweeney – Coach

Stuart Swarbrick – Coach

The Under 9 team play in the Mid Lancs Colts Junior League. Matches in the league are 7 a-side, 50 minutes in duration and non competitive in nature. They are played at Derian Pitches in Chorley on Sunday mornings with kick off being at 10am. Roll on roll off substitutions are utilised to ensure all players get a chance to play.

The team is lucky to be supported by 3 FA Licensed coaches including the head coach who holds FA Level 2 and Coerver Youth Diploma 1 certifications and is working towards becoming a UEFA B certified coach.  Training takes place on Thursday nights on the clubs Derian House pitches during summer and at Parklands during the winter months.

In line with the club ethos the team is open to all abilities and is very much focussed on development and enjoyment of the game rather than results.  All registered players will have the same opportunities to play and will get equal amounts of game time across the season.

The team is fortunate to have great support from Gorilla Glue UK for a second year running and are very grateful for their continued support.
