Our Tasburgh United F.C. Under 10’s group are coached by Matt Mullins, Owen Reynolds, Neil Cockerton, Allan Hunt and Jon Looker.

We train on Long Stratton Leisure Centre’s 3G pitch on Monday evening’s between 7pm and 8pm.
The under 10’s cohort has continued to see new players added over the last two seasons. We
train as one group to enable the children to develop friendships throughout the age group and
benefit from one another’s experiences and knowledge. Children also get to build positive
relationships with all the coaches and receive a range of focussed input.

Enjoying Football!
As a club we’re about having fun and enjoying our football, and this is no different at U10’s level.
We want to develop skilful players, but more importantly we wish to see our young people grow
into kind and resilient human beings.

As coaches we continually ask ourselves: ‘Are players being positively challenged and enjoying
their football?’ We believe that training sessions and matches need to be both competitive and
fun. We encourage children to support one another and as coaches we recognise that young
players learn much from their peers as well as from the adults around the club. This approach
enables players to take ownership and build lasting friendships.

Player Development
As coaches we look to develop players using the F.A.’s ‘four corner model’. This provides a focus
on the whole child and helps encourage the development of a young player in four key areas:
technical, psychological, social and physical. This development model provides coaches with the
framework through which we can help bring the best out of our young players.

Our Teams
We have two teams that compete in the Norfolk Combined Youth Football League. Both teams
play in the Saturday Kappa league as the Tasburgh ‘Greens’ and the Tasburgh ‘Whites’ teams.
The teams have and excellent blend of young players from our under 10’s cohort. 

How we like to play
We endeavour to play a brand of football that’s free flowing in possession and hardworking out of
possession. This ethos remains consistent whether teams are in a winning or losing position.

Cup Success!
Our players experienced a successful Kappa Cup campaign in 2018-19 which culminated in the
U9’s team lifting the trophy in May 2019. This was a fantastic experience for the players.
