What to expect?
All of our Junior Teams from u8 – u16 are based at North Birmingham Academy, College Road, Birmingham. With a new 4G playing surface on which to train the facilities are perfect to allow our young players to learn and develop. Paget Juniors have teams from u8 – u16 all playing on Saturdays in the Junior Premier League, as well as an U7’s development squad.
Added to this we will soon be starting our Girls Coaching Club and Mini Bears for all of those young aspiring footballers, all based at the North Birmingham Academy.
The Coaching Program for the entire Junior section of the club is headed by ex pro Peter Shearer. With an illustrious playing career that took in Birmingham City, Coventry City, AFC Bournemouth and Peterborough United, Peter moved into Coaching when his playing career ended and has a wealth of top level experience to pass on to all of the young players and aspiring coaches here at Paget Rangers.
Since joining the Club earlier this year as a replacement for our previous Head Coach, Courtney Pitt, who we were all delighted to see join the Burton Albion Academy, Peter has been working hard to instil his ideas and philosophy throughout the club.
“We have created a coaching environment where our footballers, both boys and girls, have a strong work and team ethic, the confidence, resilience and belief to try new things, the desire and discipline to want to always improve but most of all that is safe, fun and enjoyable. This is not just about producing good footballers, this is about producing good people.” Peter Shearer – Head Coach.
During the Foundation phase (from mini Bears all the way up to u10’s) our main focus is on technical development, making sure our young players are comfortable receiving the ball and want to be in possession, to try new things and build the confidence they need for the years ahead.
Through the transitional years where we move to 9 a side football, where we will introduce more tactical awareness, making good decisions and a desire to win the ball back as quickly as we can.
Our teams play weekly in the JPL central venue Saturday mornings from 8-10 and u11s and 12s play home and away fixtures
