Young Robins add under 8s team to youth set-up

Bideford AFC Youth are looking for keen young footballers who would like to play for their town.

The Bideford club, which was awarded Devon Charter Standard Club of the Year 2013, is looking to build on its success by progressively expanding the number of teams at the club.

Head coach Pete North said: “This is an opportunity for boys and girls to get involved at the start by forming a new under 8s team as part of Bideford AFC Youth.

“All players benefit from a structured training programme and will play in mini festivals and tournaments. They will train at Bideford College on the astro facility and also enjoy regular indoor “Futsal” sessions throughout the winter. “Here at the Robins, we get a huge number if enquiries across the various ages, but we ensure that there is a manageable number of players to each qualified coach.”

Training for the new team will be at 6-7pm on Thursdays and on Mondays from Sept 2014. Players in year 2 and 3 can contact Pete North on 01237 478840 or 07543 827224, or email for more information.
