Come and play for Thurlby Tigers U11’s
U11’s transition from Saturday to Sunday football, and from mini soccer to 9 v 9 football, and with that, a more competitive edge is introduced. Read more about our Bourne football club for year 6.
U11’s move from the Foundation stage to Youth Development phase of the FA DNA model. The emphasis continues to be on long-term player development, whilst also offering a platform for on field success. Players continue to receive fair game time balanced with the player’s development needs and positions are rotated.
During Summer months training takes place at Lawrance Park in Thurlby. Winter training takes place at either Stamford, Borderville or Elsea Park, all sessions are time appropriate for the age group. Matches are scheduled for Sunday (10am, 12pm or 2pm) and some of the age groups are currently split into 2 teams, Oranges and Blacks creating a little inner-club rivalry!
Meet the coach
Phil Smith’s son has been with the Academy since the age of five. He knew the club were looking for coaches to take the team forward and, together with another Dad, he stepped forward to help.
As a coach, he enjoys having the opportunity to work with a great group of children and watching them implement in training or in games the things we are trying to teach them (and also being supported by a fantastic group of parents).
Interested in playing?
If you’re looking for a fun and inclusive Bourne football club for year 6 children, look no further! Simply email me, I’ll be in touch to arrange coming to a training session.

I look forward to hearing from you.
