St Alban’s City Youth FC join the Coerver® Partner Club Network


Coerver® England & Wales are pleased to announce that St Albans City Youth FC will become the latest Coerver® Partner Club in an agreement that will commence from the start of the 2017-18 season.
St Albans City Youth FC will become the seventh grassroots organisation to be granted Coerver® Partner Club status in England and Wales and will benefit from the full range of benefits and opportunities that the partnership provides from September.


Luke Cheyne is the Head of Coaching & Football Operation for Coerver® England & Wales and has been instrumental in forging the partnership. “We are delighted to welcome St Albans City Youth FC into the Coerver® Partner Club programme for the 2017-18 season.”


“Even as we enter the closing stages of what has been a hugely successful inaugural Partner Club season, the process of evolving and enhancing the programme is a continual body of work. St Albans City Youth FC is a club that we identified as having the correct mindset towards the development of young footballers as well as having the club structure that we believe will make integrating the Coerver® Coaching method a seamless transition.”


“We look forward to having a continued impact in football development of young players across the country and are excited to venture into the Hertfordshire area with St Albans City Youth FC.”

Sam Mardle oversees all coach and community operations at St Albans City Youth FC. “St Albans City Youth FC are delighted and privileged to announce that we have teamed up with the world leaders in their field. This opportunity sees us join European giants SL Benfica, Rangers in addition to the existing grassroots organisations that currently form the Coerver® Partner Club network.”

“With player development and enjoyment at the heart of what the club values, we truly believe that this partnership will provide our players with a huge platform to grow and develop and achieve their goals.”

“Not only that, the Partner Club programme will provide our coaches and managers with exclusive support through regular Coach Education Events to be held throughout the season on the state of the art 3G surface at Nicholas Breakspear School, which will allow everyone to see the Coerver® Model put into practice.”

“The cutting edge Coerver online platform will also be accessible to our club members, coaches and players – a resource that we are truly excited to incorporate into our club’s player development framework.”

“Finally, our players will also receive exclusive access to the Coerver® global network – and receive such opportunities to travel to and receive training sessions at top clubs throughout Europe, including current Champions League holders, Real Madrid.”


As the only club in Hertfordshire to be a Coerver® Partner Club, we are extremely excited to see this programme help elevate us to new levels. We are delighted to have Coerver® on board, and believe this comes at exactly the right time for the club.”
