When making initial contact please include your name, club name, number of teams and the county FA you are affiliated to.

We both really liked the apps so thanks for sharing them with us they will be really useful to show the boys and keep a visual record of achievement. We have started the season well again partly through the boys natural abilities and partly down to  some good coaching, drills as well as your feedback, so we really appreciate your time to come across and mentor us we have definitely benefited from it. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future
