ROOKIES are the “young ones” and start at aged 5 and 6 year olds who are in reception years and year 1 at Primary School. We are looking to have fun whilst teaching and developing young boys and girls basic football skills through fun games, training exercises and friendly matches. Each child has an opportunity to win Player of the Week where they take a trophy home to show off to friends and family for that week.
Training sessions are 10-11.30am at Horam Rec, based in front of the clubhouse. Parents can purchase food and beverages from the clubhouse. All players are welcome so come along and join in!
Everyone is entitled to three free sessions and then £55 for the season. For more details please contact Caroline or bring your child along for a trial.
This season started out really positive with a healthy group of new recruits in the Rookies all very keen and some soon to move up and play for the under 7’s.
This all went according to plan up until December when the weather took a turn for the worst and ended our weekly training sessions very suddenly.
We were so late to return to Horam that it was very difficult to build on players so late in the season.
It has been a very frustrating season for the Rookies but for the ones that have remained loyal I am very proud of them and admire their determination and commitment.
We have had some great fun in a small space of time and I have seen great progress which will continue in seasons to come. Thank you to my Rookies for being who you are. I would also like to say a big thank you to Carys Keeley for all her help this season she is doing her Duke of Edenborough award, but more than that she has been at such a young age a great support and an absolute star
