Football Training for Post COVID


Recommended Posts

Hi All - my son is chomping at the bit to get involved with a football club. he currently plays rugby and cricket but has now declared he has a love for "the game". He is in year 3. Can anybody recommend any local clubs? ideally looking for a club where they train and play the occasional friendly game against other clubs.

Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

Hey there, that's a great age to get involved in football.

I can recommend Athenlay - I help coach one of the older teams there. Based near to Harris Girls behind Peckham Rye, it's a relaxed and friendly club that has walk-in availability for players his age - you would need to register with the club but not commit.

They start with teams/matches at Y4 - Under 9s - at that point, the teams start playing every Sunday during the season which is normally September to April.

There are other local clubs such as Dulwich Village and Hillyfielders (Honor Oak) but I am not sre that any will offer *occasional* matches once the teams are up and running.

Grass roots football is allowed again from Mon 29th March - the following weekend is Easter so it will be the next weekend (Sat 10/4) when it reopens.

    • I’m registered with Tessa Jowell health centre, when my teen was struggling with anxiety he saw a lovely mental health nurse who was very thorough and patient. 
    • Sorry I've been away for a few days!  The neighbour has finally agreed to provide a notice. I had to quote the goverment website on my texts to him. And I've since spoken to his surveyor. The surveyor said they weren't entirely sure if an agreement was needed due to the way the chimney breasts were being removed but they've checked and they do. Sounds like backtracking to me but at least they're playing ball! I did also say that if they were removing/cutting internal and external structural walls and adding beams that also counts as party structures (as it affects their ceiling/my floor - so let's see). Surveyor's coming over to introduce himself tomorrow, a notice will be issued this week and then my surveyor can be appointed. The freeholder hasn't come back on the building insurance question yet but I chased this week. It's all in writing though. Thank you all for the help you've provided. I have a feeling this neighbour will cut corners given half the chance so knowing an agreeement will be in place is a huge help.
    • I think the team at FitFor (used to be ESPH) by the cinema on Lordship Lane are really good. I busted my knee earlier this year and they got me back running.
