Then the real hard work started. FFA joined the Northampton & District Youth Alliance League with 3 teams in 2012 and today has 19 competing youth teams from U7 to U13, including 2 girls teams. During the week FFA runs football clubs after school at primaries within the Abington area and coaching courses for young players on midweek evenings and saturday mornings. The Racecourse on a saturday morning is teeming with Northampton FFA players emblazoned with their red and gold kits and Little Messi footballers working towards their maximum potential. With FFA's links to Aston Villa, Leicester City, Coventry, MK Dons and Northampton Town FC, Little Messi's is the perfect place for junior footballers to impress academy scouts, make new friends, but most importantly - have fun!
So what is next for Football For All?
