Thurlby Tigers U7’s
If you’ve got a football mad son or daughter who’d like to try playing for a local club, then Thurlby Tigers are just what you’re looking for… a fun and inclusive football club for Year 2 children.
At U7’s we start playing regular matches, introducing teamwork and positional play. We like to rotate positions through the season and ensure children are offered equal to fair playing time balanced with the players development needs. Emphasis is placed on learning the game and rewarding performance and effort over winning.
Training sessions take place at various venues around the local area, all sessions are time appropriate for the age group. Matches are typically scheduled for Saturday mornings (9.30am, 10.30am or 11.30).
Some of the age groups are currently split into 3 teams, Oranges, Blacks and Whites creating a little inter-club rivalry!
We currently have three U7 football teams
Coaching team: Matt Walker, Mark Scotney
Coaching team: Luke Gleadhill, Mark Angel
Coaching team: Dan Dring, Tom Binns
Interested in playing?
If you’re looking for a fun and inclusive football club for year 2 children, simply email me, introduce yourself and I’ll be in touch to arrange coming to a training session if space is available.
I look forward to hearing from you.
What others say…
“I recently completed my D of E bronze award, in part thanks to Thurlby Tigers U7s and the coach Tim Palmer. This was a great way to complete my volunteering section at a place I was welcomed from day 1. I helped coach the U7s alongside Tim as well as being given the opportunity to run training drills myself. Later in the season I was given responsibility to referee matches in mini tournaments. I really enjoyed the season with the U7s and intend to carry on helping in the new season”
