Hermitage under 9s are a team who have made rapid progress to reach Division 2 of the Russell Foster Youth League having made an impressive five successive promotions.

The team, coached by Tom Wilkinson and Chris Hodgson, show a great spirit and mix talent with a superb desire to work hard, improve and learn the game.

The boys have bought into the ethos of never giving their opponents an easy game and they give their all, regardless of the score.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with these young players and see their commitment to playing football the right way, learning the game and having the confidence to play out from the back and develop a passing game.

Such is every players’ desire to improve, it has been easy for the the coaches to ensure each squad member gets exactly the same game time. Each and every one of them puts in maximum effort and so each one gets the same opportunity to learn from playing the game itself.

We are backed by a fantastic set of supportive parents and two wonderful kit sponsors, Cinderella Services and Cummins Engineering Ltd  (0191 4923635).
