Andover and Basingstoke Development Centre
The development centre is managed by Jason Holmes. He is a UEFA B Level 3 coach, has completed the Youth Modules and holds Level 2 FA Talent Identification qualification.
Jason lives in Andover and coaches at various level of the game from grassroots to academy football at Southampton FC. He is also currently Head Coach at the Southampton FC development centre in Basingstoke, Lead scout covering an area around Andover, Basingstoke, Newbury and border of Reading he is actively involved in developing young players and mentoring players and coaches at various levels of the game.
Jason is an active member of the Wherwell Playing Fields Committee and first played football for Wherwell aged 15.
ShootersFC use local council but mostly play their games at Wherwell and Winton Academy so using these facilities as a base for the development centre was a natural progression. The club feels that it is a great privilege to be linked to both the school and playing field.
We will welcome players through out the season and will use the development centre to encourage players to improve and when ready to move on and play scheduled games.
We will work on various skills and play small sided games from 1v1 to 4v4 and other league teams in 5v5 format.
