PHIL WALKER FOOTBALL
DARE TO DREAM _ WALK WITH US
Our first goal is to contribute to the all-around confidence and mental well being of the children who train with us. We aim to assist in developing a positive mindset, a disciplined attitude and a focused thought process. Ultimately, transferring these skills into all that they do, both off and on the pitch - using the ball, the pitch and the net as a metaphor for all their desired life goals and future achievements.
Our second goal is centred on training young players, boys and girls aged 4 -14 with the technical skills needed to play intuitively for grassroots league football. The underlying ethos is to either harness natural talent or harness those who are gifted at working hard.
With over 15 teams in our local Saturday grassroots youth league, being a member of the PW DONS Football Club is for children who are passionate about football.
Focus, endurance, discipline and commitment are all the key driving attributes that are needed to grow in our Football Club. The entry age group is 7 to 14.
THE FOUNDER, PHIL...
“Too many times I see again and again a child’s potential to express themselves on a football pitch being affected by the wrong goals. Winning becomes more important than development.”
"Compared to when I played and lived overseas, one factor continues to trouble me when watching football in England. Why can other countries continually produce talented two-footed footballers, who possess both technique and vision? Where are the future homegrown stars in England?"
