“I had great fun during my time at New Forest Football Academy. Coach Jesse was always really positive and encouraging, while pushing me to be my best.”- Brodie

Brodie (AFC Bournemouth Academy Player)

“As parents we always loved coming to watch the sessions, Niall, Jesse and Hugh always made it such good fun for the kids, while pushing them in the right direction. Niall and Jesse were so helpful and supportive with his move to AFC Bournemouth.”

Brodie's Parents

“I loved playing football with my friends at NFFA & learning about the game. Jamie taught me to be an outfield player, which is very important for goalkeeping. Stewart is a really, really good coach who also makes you laugh a lot!”

Gus (Southampton FC Academy Player)

“A very shy Gus was suprised to be asked by Jesse to trial for NFFA & the Elite Squad soon followed. The coaches were very encouraging & really helped Gus to come out of himself & grow in confidence. He discovered a love for goalkeeping after a fixture against AFC Bournemouth. Stewart has been a mentor for Gus in his Journey to Saints, where he can be regularly heard shouting across the pitch. Thank you NFFA & Stewart for understanding what player
development really takes!”

Gus's Parents

Hudson (Southampton FC Academy Player)

Hudson's Parents

“I really enjoyed my time at the NFFA and all the coaches made training both fun and challenging which really helped in my development. Coach Jesse was great and I used to love playing matches for the high performance team against other local academies. I made some great football friends at New Forest too.”

Toby (Southampton FC Academy Player)

“We can’t thank the coaches at NFFA enough for all the help and support they gave our son Toby at the start of his footballing journey. The enthusiasm and commitment to training shown by the coaches helped inspire Toby and gave him a strong foundation of skills which he has continued to develop since
joining the academy at Southampton.”

Toby's Parents

“I loved the sessions we did at NFFA, there were lots of different ones and it was really fun every week. We didn’t just train, we also played games, which allowed us to work as a team! The coaches gave lots of tips and explained things to us. They would pull me out of a game, talk to me and help me learn!”
