Sheen Lions are an FA Charter Standard youth football club in the Sheen, Richmond, Kew, Roehampton area of South-West London. We are affiliated to the Surrey County FA and we provide coaching and organised match programmes for around 300 children from the ages of 6 to 18 years.
For the 2013-14 season we expect to run twenty one boys football teams representing the Club at all levels in the Surrey Youth League. The Sheen Lions Club is run by volunteers enthusiastic about youth football and all our teams have qualified coaches some up to UEFA level 3. Last season we were nominated by the Surrey Youth League for a National Respect and Fairplay award and were very pleased to win the win the Toshiba Rose Bowl as the club with the best sportsmanship marks in the Surrey Youth League.
On Sunday mornings during the season our home at Palewell Park is a fantastic sight with three mini pitches, one 9v9 and three 11-a-side pitches all available to host league games under the control of qualified referees. Our excellent organisation and great coaches have made us one of the largest clubs playing in the Surrey Youth League.
Demand to play football at Sheen Lions always exceeds capacity but, as we finish one season we begin to prepare for the next.
- We are very keen to bring players who want to learn to play competitive football into our our younger age groups
- Our older age groups are always prepared to meet good players who could enhance the team. Most of our older teams train through the Summer term and play competitively in summer five or six a-side tournaments and this gives us a good opportunity to introduce new players.
We would encourage boys who are interested to contact us sooner rather than later. Squads for next season are largely decided by the end of June.
Check your birthday against the list below to contact the appropriate manager for your age group and arrange to come along to one of our training sessions.
