Our Cottenham Under-8s have played together since 2021 and since then all children have developed their footballing abilities and formed some great relationships both on and off the pitch. We started off as one team but recently due to increasing numbers and eagerness of new children wanting to join have formed 2 teams, Red & Blacks. Although we have two Under-8s teams we have the ethos of one team and still train together on Tuesday evenings.
We are open to players of all abilities, from those that currently enjoy playing football, to those that have never played before but would like to give it a go.
The main focus of each training session is to have fun while also developing the player's football skills.
