(Posted 13th March 2018) Longfleet prides itself on development of players, coaches, teams and all its members. To be able to provide enjoyable football for all is what is essential to us. Within our Club Development Plan, we have always had the goal of creating an Abilities team to be able to offer football to others that may not suit mainstream football, such as our very successful DSActive teams. We would very much like to branch this out further to create other inclusion teams. We are currently receiving enquiries from parents seeking teams for their children to be able to join who need more support than our current mainstream teams. Along with this, we have had adult enquires but have not been successful in placing them with a team. 

If anyone has an interest in coaching within an inclusion setting at Longfleet Youth, please contact Dee Cooper
