Our Under 11 team provides girls with a fantastic introduction to football in a safe and structured environment.

Sessions are delivered by highly qualified Burnley FC in the Community coaches and aim to make girls fall in love with the beautiful game.

We want all of our players to be given opportunities to try things and be on the ball as much as possible. Mastering the ball and developing their technical ability is crucial, ensuring that we are creating Burnley FC Women players that enjoy being on the ball and are confident in all areas of the pitch.

The values that run through the club are embedded into the team even at the young age groups. We want our players to respect each other and their coaches, ensuring they work hard in every session and game.

Under 11 Coaches Darren Sturrock and Mark Shaughessesy’s overview of the 2017/18 season.

This was a newly formed team, with a mix of experience. Some having played for other teams, others who had never played competitively and some who had never played before!

From the outset, the team spirit has been the stand out feature of the squad. The players are all supportive of each other and have become good friends – they are without a doubt a small team with a big heart.

Everyone has developed this season, both in footballing skills and self-confidence, which is fantastic.

The games have been a joy to watch. Well done!
