Uckfield Grasshoppers continue to grow as a club offering more football to young people in the local community. Following the success of being an FA registered, Scottish & Southern Electricity (SSE) Wildcats Centre, we have formed a new under 11/12 girls team.
Overseen by two new coaches Jess Barnes and Dave Newton, Jess is a new and very much valued member of the coaching team. She is in inspiration to coaches and players alike and does not let her disability affect her from doing what she loves. She recently completed the Superhero Celebrity Tri, is finishing her FA Level 1 Coaching Course and has attended the FA’s Welfare Officers course.
We’ve also been been lucky enough to create a younger girls group who train on a Saturday morning 09:00 to 10:15. Led by one of our longest standing and most active coaches Nick Bignell. this session is for girls aged 5-10, and is built on the values instilled at our Wildcats Centre: Try it, like it, love it!
