Welcome to SAFC Development U18 team NEWS
Open training sessions a great success:
Held on 8th & 10th May over 30 players aged 1517 years from all the county attended the two evening sessions. Team Chairman David Morgan & Head Coach Adam Coyle addressed both players and supporters.
 
"We have just held our open training sessions where players were invited along to start building a squad for next seasons under 18s, over the 2 nights we had close to 40 players turn up and considering that this has only been going for a few weeks there was a remarkable turn out. The standard was very good, the players put on a great display over the 2 sessions.

After lots of difficult decisions we have managed to get the squad down to 22 which will give us plenty of options heading into pre season.

Pre season will be a really exciting test for our players, we will be playing against some tough Academy opposition, These games will set the standard of where we as a team want to be before our league fixtures start. Our overall aim as a club is to progress players from our u18s into our 1st team, and in pre season we will be training alongside our 1st team so this will really help the younger lads develop by being around the 1st team.

Considering this team is in its very early days the early signs are really exciting and we can't wait to get started now in pre season which will begin in June" ADAM COYLE
