We are always looking to improve our services to our players and with the introduction of ‘Top Trainer’ each month and term we feel it is important to acknowledge the players who consistently give it they’re all. Players who show they are developing alongside our values and ethics.
We are in our second ‘FREE’ Monthly Prize Draw and will be announcing the winner at the end of this month. Rupert won a ‘DW Beanie’ for September and it is perfect for this time of year.
We welcome some new staff on board DWSS and would like to welcome Lillie who is our new ‘Coaching Assistant’ and Laura who is soon to join us a ‘DWSS Coach’. As we grow it is important the players continually get quality training and this something we are very mindful of which is why our DWSS team is growing to be able to provide the best training in Hitchin!!
We will be announcing some EXCITING NEWS at the end of this month……so keep an eye out on our social media for this!!!!
It is great to be back at our term-time training and helping provide a safe environment for our players where they can be outside, running around, learning, developing their football technique and having fun.
At this current time things are very different and for us as an organisation we want to be able to provide a healthy, positive environment to help support our players.
We have had a fantastic reaction to our training which is great to see and have had many players join DWSS. To help develop these players and fulfil their potential with our experience and knowledge is a pleasure. We can help create a clear pathway for our players to reach their goals!
Some of our players who have been with us from the start are really developing their football technique and we have seen them progress in their own football journey through going into the JPL and some of our female players being accepted into further football associated organisations.
We look forward to what the future may hold and hope to see more young players join DWSS.
Ex Millwall FC professional – Over 500 professional appearances
“I’ve known Darren for nearly 20 years and it’s great to see he’s giving the wealth of professional experience he has back into the local community to support the next generation of aspiring players”.
Former Tottenham and England International Player
“I was fortunate enough to play with Darren at Millwall and Swindon, he is one of the most professional players I have come across. He is a real student of the game, a player who has played at the highest of levels and able to carry on late into his 30’s. Fantastic character to be around and someone who I learnt so much from, not only on the pitch but also off it”.
“Darren has been coaching our son for the last 2 seasons, he has helped him develop his skills on the pitch, as well as personally off the pitch. Darren has a vast amount of knowledge not only about football, and has given us guidance and ideas to support our son in his everyday life. Darren is a great mentor and coach not only to my son but the whole team. He is always encouraging and positive, and tries to get the best out of each boy in every session."
Former Swindon Old Town Boys Manager
“Giving all of Darrens experience within the game, it showed very quickly the impact that his vast knowledge base would have on the capability of the team. Within weeks we were far more competent on the ball and lots of players had a much better understanding of what part they had to play within the team. Cant recommend Darren more highly for his competency, creativity and professionalism."
Co-Founder of Football For Fathers
“Darren is an accomplished football industry professional, ex-Premier league player and respected UEFA coach. DW Soccer School offers something different; all round development of our young people, from technical football skills through to 'helping them be the best they can be' as a person in a supportive and fun environment"
