Through the support of the Jersey Football Association GS United Football Club was formed and obtained the FA Charter Standard kitemark.

"Hi Aaron, thought I would just drop a line to say how good the lads were today. A great team performance today with not just individual performances but the team play and build up was a joy to watch.
A thoroughly entertaining game and you could just see the confidence growing within the group. I thought that the opposition would come on stronger in the latter part of the game but it was not the case and the way GS kept their shape and responded after being 2-1 down was a credit to them.
But even more so, a huge credit to you guys for the work you are putting in to them is starting to really show on the pitch. It was an excellent all round performance and long may it continue. Terrific stuff, well done”
All our junior coaches appointed agree to work within the Coaches Best Practice Policy at

As with any method of teaching, its success is based upon the coaches who deliver it.

"Fantastic club, Daniel is thrilled with all coaching sessions, and he cant wait for Sunday's just to be able to train it is really that good. Also, he did improve a lot with his skills, and football in general. Highly recommended for all kids!"
"They were great, really good to watch they're attitude throughout was brilliant. There has been huge improvement in they're overall game management and they are playing with a bit of confidence and belief and most importantly they're playing as a team. You as coaches must be delighted as all your hard work is really starting to pay off”
