2019 Pre-Season Training



Pre-season training starts Mon 7th Jan 2019 and ends Fri 15-Mar 2019.
After that date we use the in-season training timetable.


NOTE: Mackie Road isn’t available during pre-season.



Regular Soccer Training

If your team isn’t listed, the coach should request a space (see next section ‘Times’).




Coaches can use this table to find vacant spaces and send a request to the club to book it.
Note: The ‘Age’ column and size of spaces is a guide only. All requests will be considered.

Lords-keysafe-2Switching the Lights On

If you need to switch the grounds lights on, call or text the club for the instructions.



Switching the Lights Off

  • The last team to leave the pitches near the clubhouses must switch off the lights for Lord 1 and Lord 2.  Call or text the club for the instructions.
  • The last team to leave pitch 3 (behind the primary school) must switch off the lights for Lord 3.  Call or text the club for the instructions.

Training and Teamstuff

Team Managers can load their team training sessions into Teamstuff.   It you set them up as a recurring event, just be aware that once they are all created, there is no way to go back and edit them as a series. In others words they become a bunch of unrelated trainings which can only be edited individually.   Training sessions have a built-in attendance tracker. Up to you whether you want to use it or not.
