School of Football Testimonials from Schools and Parents...
The Gates Primary School
"Thank you for your time in providing an excellent after school football club, our children here at The Gates have thouroughly enjoyed this and we do hope that this service can be provided again in the near future."
Julie Frith, School Administrator
Claypool Primary School
"Bolton Wanderers Community Trust is actively involved in the development and promotion of football at our school. Staff organise out of school activities in a friendly and safe environment. All levels of ability and ages are catered for and I am very impressed by the commitment and reliability of the staff who have organised these sessions. The staff have further been involved in the promotion of the school in the FA Premier League Creating Chances football tournament and I would happily recommend them to any school who wishes to further football as part of Out of Hours Learning provision."
Mr C Horne, Teacher
St Mary's and St Benedicts RC Primary School
"Bolton Wanderers School of Football delivered a very popular and successful football course at St Mary’s and St Benedict’s RC Primary School, Bamber Bridge, Preston. The course limit was originally 32; however this was extended by the BWFC School of Football on request of the school as 47 children wanted to take part. The School of Football immediately arranged for an extra coach so all 47 could join the course."
"The children of ages 5-11 years took part in a range of football skills which included: dribbling, shooting, passing, team work and games. All the children were made to feel valued whatever their football level and activities were differentiated to match the needs of the children. The coaches were exemplary in their professional manner and their passion for football was shared and promoted with the children.
SMSB would welcome BWFC School of Football back anytime."
Natalie Calvert, Deputy Head Teacher
First Steps Football
"My son attends the First Steps Football coaching delivered by BWFC School of Football Coaches, the club is open to boys and girls of ages 3-4 years old."
"The coaches welcome the young boys and girls into the world of football using games, introducing simple football skills. The sessions last one hour and every second is value for money. The children are allowed to have a kick around with their parents when they arrive then the coaches take the lead. Each session is different which adds to the excitement. Coaches are quick to make the children feel valued and work professionally to gain the very best from each child whatever their level."
"The coaches encourage and support learning to a very high level - no child is every left out and they always promote team work and good attitudes to each other."
"Excellent and enjoyment is First Steps Football thanks to the BWFC School of Football Coaches."

Kidzone @ the Den
"I would sincerely like to thank Bolton Wanderers Community Trust for their programme which they delivered during the Summer Holidays. As many parents may understand, the summer break can be a real struggle to keep the kids entertained. Here at Kidzone we had nine whole weeks to fill with many different varieties of activities for the children’s entertainment. We contacted Bolton Wanderers to enquire about the possibility of them providing two afternoons of training for our children who cover the vast age bracket of 4-13yrs old. Our enquiry was dealt with very promptly with a representative visiting us prior to the sessions to talk through the plans for the sessions and to check that the areas were suitable."
"I am very impressed with the level of dedication and reliability of the staff who both organised and provided the training for the children. The children were very happy and thoroughly enjoyed these sessions. As an observer I could see that the skills and ability of all of the children were catered for throughout."
"We were extremely grateful to be able to welcome both Bolton Wanderers Community Trust and the legend that is Lofty the Lion into our club and are looking for an even more successful reunion next summer."
Shane McKee, Deputy Manager
Half Term Football Course
“Just a quick line to thank you and your staff for, what came across via my son, Charlie Sweeney, as an extremely well run and enjoyable experience at the ‘School of Football’ soccer school run at Canon Slade during February half term week."
"This was his first experience of half term activities without any of his friends with him, so we were a little apprehensive beforehand. However we needn't have been, as he loved each and every day!"
Brian Sweeney, Parent
