Development Squad

The GNFC Development Squad is currently run by Dan Moore, with training taking place on Saturday mornings for local players aged 4 to 6 years old.  There is currently no waiting list, so children can turn up to play when they want to

GNFC Development Squad training began again on Saturday 8th September and will take place every Saturday at 9am in Great Notley

Please contact us if you have any questions or message Dan Moore via the GNFC Development Squad Facebook page

You can follow the GNFC Development Squad on Facebook, where Dan provides regular updates:

Training is £2 per session; there are no registration fees at development level – children can come along if and when they like.   Training is usually on Saturdays at 9-10am, on the grass area behind the Prince Louis pub, adjacent to the park at the Community Centre on Notley Green

They can wear any football kit they like.  If you can, football boots/astros and shin pads are useful to wear, but best to see if they enjoy it first.  A good place to start is Sports Direct at Freeport.  Please bring a filled water bottle for them

Aim of training sessions
Training sessions at this age are more fun based to get them into it – the Devt Squad’s favourite is normally shark attack or cowboys and Indians – whilst playing, the players inadvertently learn shooting and dribbling. There are often little awards given at the end of each session for showing a great attitude and enjoyment
