With the help of Director of Football, Ryan Northmore, the Seagulls In The Community oversee the football development for all of the junior teams from the u7s in the Foundation Phase right through to the under 16s. The junior set up at Weston has expanded over the past few years so that we are now able to offer a team at every age group. The overall aim and focus is to create a philosophy and brand of football that can be recognised as Weston-super-Mare AFC in every match. Development and progression outweigh results as we try to create a family environment and solid foundations for every player’s future.
Each age group is lead by a minimum FA Level 2 coach and is supported by a player who has progressed through the system at Weston. You will often find current first team squad members on hand to guide the future stars and offer masterclasses in skill workshops. We often provide development days to get everyone together and build stronger bonds. In the summer we took five age groups into main club sponsor, Il Michelangelo’s sea front restaurant for a taste of the high class healthy food on offer, followed by some tournament style beach football.
