are a Saturday morning football training club that was formed back
in 1998 when our founder Tim Sadler realised that most local junior
football clubs were discarding players of lesser ability who were
then unable to take part in the game that they loved. In addition,
most of the local junior football clubs were not taking players until
they were eight or nine years of age, therefore reducing the opportunity
for kids to play.
In an area of Chesterfield identified as being disadvantaged, and
on a school field hired at a favourable charge by Newbold Community
School the club was formed. With the school requiring the land for
a new building the club moved its venue to near by Highfield Park
in August 2003 with kind permission from Chesterfield Borough Council.
The club provides football training and coaching for boys and girls
of all abilities aged from five to fifteen years old. Youngsters at
an early age are coached the basic skills such as ball control, passing,
dribbling, heading, shooting and running with the ball. The emphasis
is on fun and enjoyment of the game, having said that we have produced
a 'conveyor belt' of talent for local clubs. A number of players have
been signed by local professional clubs Chesterfield, Derby County,
Mansfield Town, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday whilst hundreds
of our members have joined the regions junior amateur clubs, which
includes Chesterfield Town.
we do not play competitive games against other clubs we hold Mini
World Cup Competitions on the last Saturday of each month and we
regularly hold other events such as the recent 'Lets kick racism
out of football' awareness day. We regularly give out prizes and
trophies and we have a prestigious 'Player of the Year Award'. Diego
De Girolamo was our winner in 2002 and he is now at Sheffield United.
He has also appeared for the England Under 8's team. The weekly
awards are given for players who display good behaviour, discipline,
improvement and teamwork.
Our efforts have been rewarded by the Football Association who in
2004 awarded us new equipment under their 'Free Kicks Scheme'. The
Royal Mail Sports Foundation and RAC Auto Windscreens have provided
us with training equipment as recognition for the services that
we have provided for the local community and recently the Club was
granted an award under the 'Barclays Spaces for Sport' scheme.
In 2009 the club received the prestigious FA Chartered Standard
at Pride Park during half-time at the Derby County v. Blackpool
We have a number of F.A. qualified coaches and first aiders to look
after our membership which is currently over one hundred. There
is no membership fee but we do charge a fee of £2.00 per session.
The sessions take place every Saturday morning from 9.30 to 11.30am.
