AFC Liverpool

Youth Teams - Under 14’s - Craven Minor

Craven Minor League

Coach: Daniel Blair (under 14’s)

Season 2011/12 will be played in the Craven Minor Junior Football League. This is the second year we’ve been affiliated with AFC, before which, we were part of another junior team set-up for the two prior years.

This is my first year as team manager and also first year coaching under AFC for Paul Nield our head coach. We’re both looking forward to the coming season as we’ve seen some glimpses of the type of football we expect our players to be capable playing against very strong Tranmere and Wrexham sides during our pre-season games. With a little more self belief, composure and conditioning we could have a very strong season.

Previously I was head coach and ran the team along with Paul Young who is now the AFC Youth Development Officer. We originally started the team because of the lack of opportunities for juniors to join a group that was based around playing, teaching and encouraging passing football, which is still our ethos today.

Our players are still coached to play as much pass and move football as possible with the intention of player progression through into the AFC Liverpool first team, a professional academy or a centre of excellence.

We believe we have a number of players of the correct calibre who are more than capable of completing this progression and even further if the opportunities are taken that are currently being given to them.

We are always looking to bring in quality players that we can help develop as a player and that can enhance our current squad.
