Mission Statement

Our mission is simple; to provide a safe and risk free environment for players and coaches alike to develop their skills and to provide opporunity to progress their career whilst enjoying the beautifiul game.

​Key points to our mission can be read below:
  1. Safe Environment for Development
    Based at Hirst Welfare we offer fantastic facilities as a club, with use of their 3G floodlit pitch for all our training sessions year round. All of our volunteers are DBS Checked and there is at least one FA Level 1 coach per team.
  2. Additional Opportunities
    Some of our coaches like to put on additional sessions for their players, whether it be agility based or fitness based sessions for some of our older teams. For our goalkeepers we have a weekly session ran by MP1 Goalkeeping.
  3. Support New & Existing Coaches
    By taking full advantage of our assets such as our Nike Partnership, we are able to support our existing coaches and new volunteers in their development. We have put new coaches through their FA Level 1 and helped existing coaches move onto their UEFA B.
  4. Senior Football, Coaching, Refereeing
    For our older players the footballing journey does not have to end at under 18s. As a club we can offer routes into the Ashington AFC first team for those capable, but we also offer the chance for our older players to complete their coaching and refereeing badges.
