Training Saturday 10th September and Friday 9th

All football matches have been cancelled for Sunday 11th September. However training will go ahead on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th September as scheduled.

There will be a minutes silence before each session to remember Her Majesty The Queen.

No Matches – Sunday 11th September

Her Majesty the Queen was a long-standing Patron of The Football Association and has left a lasting and indelible legacy on our national game.

As a mark of respect, following the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, English football has united to postpone all football fixtures between 9-11 September including Grass Roots football.

The Surrey Youth League have informed their members that out of respect for HM Queen Elizabeth and the President of The Football Association, Prince William, the decision has been taken by The FA and other football governing bodies that all football fixtures are to be cancelled this weekend. This includes all Surrey Youth Leagues games scheduled for Sunday 11th September.

No football including friendlies will be played.

Sheen Lions F.C. thoughts are with the Royal Family at this very sad time.

Coaches v Parents 2022

Saturday afternoon saw the return of the coaches v parents fixture, this time taking place at Rosslyn Park.

This is a a fixture organised by the coaches to develop the relationship and morale between parents and coaches – and to have a great time! 

This year was also designed to raise money for charity in the memory of our friend and fellow manager Terry Buckland.

The game was played in a great spirit and after a few tactical adjustments at half time, the coaches ran out worthy winners.

Well done to all involved and we look forward to the 2023 fixture.

U12 Walton and Hersham Tournament

Congratulations to our U12 team who played and won all six games to win the Walton And Hersham tournament, conceding only one goal on the day.

Remarkably the U12 entered a second team into the U13 section of the same tournament and won that as well!

Age Groups

Age Group Specific Guidance

U06

We will take new members until around mid February. After that you will be placed on the list to be invited to our Summer Soccer Six in June and July. Fees are reduced after Christmas but we are a football club and we do not pro-rata fees, you may decide that your best option now is to wait for Summer Soccer Six anyway.

U07 and U08

We are only able to accommodate new members into a second session on Saturday morning starting at 10:45. The majority of these age groups train starting at 09:00. There is no option to trial in these age groups, you have to join to attend.

U09 and U10

You can trial but even so it is most unlikely that you will obtain a place in our match squads now and you will only be able to join as a Cub (training only).

U11 and Older

You must complete the short application form available here. The experience section is most important as the age group managers will use that to decide if they wish to trial you now, in the Summer for next season or regrettably not at all.

U6, U7 and U8 Age Groups – January 2022

Message From Club Secretary

Firstly, thank you all for your patience. I know that being on a waiting list can be very frustrating. The demand for Sheen Lions increases every year but this season it has taken us by surprise how many children want to join. As you would expect we are very mindful of how big the groups are and need to ensure that ratios of children and coaches are right so we can deliver the very best experience for the players.

I am pleased to say that we are now in a position where we can offer a training session for U7s & U8s on the waiting list, but only if there is enough demand to make it viable. If the numbers are good enough we will have separate age groups. If there are only enough players for one group we will combine the U7s and U8s as one group. If the uptake is very low then we will not be able to offer the session at all.

Some of you may indeed have found a place elsewhere, and are happy with your choice and that’s perfectly understandable. However, if you would be kind enough to let us know, one way or the other, whether this is something you would sign up to  so we can then gauge to see if we are in a position to go ahead, we’d be very grateful.

Those of you already on the waiting list have been sent an email invitation to register for our Cubs squad. Please respond on that email as soon as possible but by Monday 27th December at the very latest.

The sessions will start from Saturday 8th January 2022 on Palewell Common at 10.45am – 12.15pm. This is NOT the same time as the existing sessions for these age groups. The first session will be a trial to give you the opportunity to make the decision to continue or not. You will have to complete your membership by paying before you attend any later sessions.

Planned training dates are shown in the calendar on the team pages, note that the Cubs sessions starting at 10:45 are the ones you are looking for. You may attend the Special Goal Keeper sessions also shown if you wish.

kind regards
Sarah Street
Club Secretary – Sheen Lions F.C.
