Our Technical Centre incorporates a mixture of small sided football games and skill building activities. These games and activities are designed to be enjoyable, while also helping players to develop their football technique, game understanding, and general movement and coordination skills.

The Technical Centre is a part of our FDP and Settlers Programmes, and players in those programmes train in the Technical Centre during the winter season.
