up in the local area. It was formed by Jamie Howell and Adam

our local area playing at a higher standard of football either in the
professional game or at a higher level in non league. They are looking at
developing players whose current managers, coaches, or parents who
feel their children have the ability and dedication to play and develop at
a higher level and would benefit from specialist coaching. Jamie Howell

Thursdays after-school for years 5 and 6. There will be a charge for this
club. For more information please visit http://www.allstarsoccerwsx.com/

skills while having fun. Teaching the fundamentals of gymnastics, including skills such as forward and backward rolls, handstands and cartwheels.
