BackoftheNet Coaches

Finn has been attending BackoftheNet for 5 years now and I would like to thank all the coaching team for all the opportunities that Finn has received. He's had a two month trial with Aston Villa and is now with Northampton Town. The level of coaching and enjoyment that Finn gets is fantastic and I would recommend to any lad that has a passion for the game to really consider BackoftheNet !! Many thanks, Steve N.

Wow, BackoftheNet is the best coaching my child has ever had by a million miles. In the past we have always been to a pro club near by who run soccer schools, but from now on it will be BackoftheNet.
Tracey Jones
Just wanted to say thank you to all at BackoftheNet for everything you have done for the boys. They both came home on a real high, which we haven’t seen for a while.
Kim & Carol
Thanks again BackoftheNet – I am so glad that I found BackoftheNet in Milton Keynes, David has improved so much since attending your advanced courses. Your coaches are so positive and their experience and knowledge of the game is priceless for my son’s future development.
James Bolton
My son has thoroughly enjoyed his days with you. It's the best soccer schools he has been on. I would certainly recommend you to others.
Laura Thompson
I would like to say a massive thank you to all the team at Back of the Net on behalf of my son Caden Poulton. Off the back of a summer tournament Caden was spotted by Aston Villa which led onto 14 great months there before being asked to join. Caden has more recently been offered a contract by Northampton Town which logistically works better for Caden and the family. Without the training and support from the BOTN team this would not of happened so we are very grateful.
