As we kick off this new season, I want to share a warm and positive message to each and every one of you.
First and foremost, let’s remember that our players are not just here to play a game of football, but to learn valuable life lessons. Through football, they will develop teamwork, discipline, perseverance, and respect. It’s a journey and a process, that will shape them into confident, responsible, and resilient individuals.
This season, let’s encourage our young footballers to dream big, set goals, and work tirelessly towards achieving them. When they stumble, let’s remind them that it’s not about how many times they fall, but how many times they get back up. When they lose, let’s remind them that its part of the process an opportunity to learn and grow stronger. In football, there is always another game!
Together, as coaches, parents & players we form a community. A community and a club that supports and encourages every player, no matter their skill level. So let’s be the role models that our players need. Role models of respect, kindness and fair play, both humble in victory and graceful in defeat.
As parents, you play an integral role in this journey. Your unwavering support, early wake ups, cheers from the sidelines, and words of encouragement are invaluable. Without you, our players cannot get to train, cannot attend matches so for that I thank you.
Let’s make this season a remarkable one, filled with joy, growth, and unforgettable moments. Together, we can create an environment where our players thrive, not only as footballers but as individuals who carry the spirit of positivity and optimism into every aspect of their lives.
Thank you for entrusting us with your children’s development, and here’s to a season filled with hope, determination, and endless possibilities!
With high spirits and best wishes, LETS GO LEYTON, LETS GO!

We are pleased to have our relationship with local physiotherapy – Atkins Physiotherapy Consultants Ltd. Atkins have been helping the public for over 32 years and are based in South Woodford on the high road (opposite Tesco Express).
This newly formed relationship is hopefully the start of a long-standing one which gives all players signed for AFC Leyton a 15% discount on physiotherapy. I hope we rarely have to use their services but with injuries a common occurrence in football I’m pleased to have a trusted, local and experienced physiotherapy team to help and support. If needed, please get in touch with them and quote “Harry” or “AFC Leyton” for a high quality service, friendly approach and a discounted rate. http://www.atkinsphysio.com
