MK Wanderers FC have big plans to attract the best up and coming managers and coaches in the city to help the club grow.

Wanderers were formed in 1992 with the ambition of providing an opportunity for all children in Milton Keynes to learn about and enjoy the game, while also developing their skills.

The club is entirely self funded – dependant upon the goodwill of parents and members to provide a save and friendly environment to play football.

Wanderers have a policy that all their managers and coaches are police checked, first aid trained, and hold a minimum FA level 1 coaching certificate.

And now Wanderers are looking to recruit the best of the next generation of young managers and coaches in the city as they continue to boast one of the most impressive youth set-ups in the area, as well as field two senior sides in the North Bucks League.

“We’re keen to hear from former players who wish to put something back into the game, or maybe those who have always thought about coaching in youth football but have not found the right opportunity within the right club structure,” said vice chairman Andy Manners.

“We can support you in that, so if you are interested then please get in touch.”

On the playing side, the club are looking to improve their younger age groups at under 7, 8, 9 and 10, so any children in school Years 1 to 5 are invited to get in touch.

And Wanderers’ existing youth squads from U11s to U16s are also on the lookout for new recruits.

Wanderers will also be launching their new ‘Robins’ development group for kids from the age of 4-6 this year.

This new section will be run on Saturday mornings from the club’s Kents Hill ground, under the guidance of qualified coaches with a brief to introduce younger children to the game, where the emphasis will be on fun, learning and enjoyment.

Contact club chairman Aitchison White on 01908 506402 if you would like to get involved with the club at any level.
