More Info:

The team was started back in 2013 by Jon Southard, who was already a coach within the Broadclyst youth set up, when he sent flyers out to the local school asking if children in reception class would be interested in playing football for the club. Due to his commitment with his U13’s team at the time, the logistics proved difficult for him to run two teams and have a life, so asked Mike Ebdon step in and help him out; Mike ultimately took the head coach role with Jon remaining sporadically involved as assistant.

In their first year playing competitive football at U7’s they won all but 3 of their matches and scored over 100 goals. They were crowned champions of the renowned Exeter City FC annual 6-a-side tournament and finished as at least runner up in every competitive tournament they played that season.

As U8’s the success continued – P: 38 W: 32 D:3 L:3 Scoring 178 goals and only conceding 38.

Many of the boys have been recognised for their ability and efforts with 1 having left for the Exeter City FC U9’s academy, 1 in the Exeter City FC Performance Centre, 2 in the Chelsea Elite Development Centre and 1 in the full squad at the Arsenal Development Centre.
