Grassroots football that’s fun and fresh. Our St Albans Football teams play Saturday matches, with action packed games and coaching activities cleverly designed to improve skills and develop their lifelong love of the game.
What's it all about?
From the essential basics to full game situations, your youngster will develop the skills that are key to playing fun, attacking football. Age-specific activities, live matches and FA accredited coaches give you the reassurance that your child is receiving the best possible start in football, learning their sport in a practical, realistic way.
But most importantly, in our St Albans Football team they’ll be having fun, making new friends and keeping fit in a safe, positive environment. Which we hope will be the start of a life-long love of football!
Action packed Saturday matches that last between 40 and 60 minutes. With 30 matches per season, that’s more work for little legs than any other league!

Dynamic Ball Mastery
Football is a great way for children to develop new skills, and we actively encourage home practice. To help, all our League players are given membership of the #1 individual football training programme (www.mypersonalfootballcoach.com). The clever App lets your child continue to practice ball skills at home through age appropriate interactive training in ball mastery, first touch, dribbling, passing, receiving, turning and more via smart phone or tablet.
Helping them to developing quick feet & coordination. And, as they get older to evolve and refine their technical game.
