Under 8 Whites

Gabe McSweeney – Manager

Darren Marsden – Asst. Manager

The Under 8 Whites play in the Mid Lancs Colts Junior League.  Matches in the league are 5 a-side,  40 minutes in duration and non competitive in nature.  They are played at Central Venue, Penwortham on Saturday mornings with kick off being at 9, 10 or 11 a.m.  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 inside at Parklands in winter.

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.

Currently the squad is full and is not in a position to take on any more players but please feel free to get in touch and let us know of your interest so that we can be in touch when a place becomes available.  Also if you are a parent or coach interested in running a team at this level please also get in touch and we can talk it though.  You can contact the manager at darren.marsden@abjfc.co.uk
