Prestbury Phantoms Under 7's Academy

The Under 7's are from school year 2, and operate under the Prestbury Phantoms Academy that started in March 2014.

The Academy is designed to provide children that at present are not old enough to compete in league football with an opportunity to take part in fun training activities, team building and football skills development. We welcome boys and girls of all abilities and offer them a chance to get outside on a Saturday morning and have fun with their friends. As well as training, we organise occasional friendly matches which are a great way to give the kids some match day experience and build on team spirit. We have dedicated coaches working to develop this age group into a team ready for league football at Under 9's and beyond. The Under 7's train from 10.00am - 11.30am at Pittville School every Saturday during the season (except for some sessions in the school holidays) unless they have an away friendly match.
