U12 Black Sox are a squad of 15 players who live in the Belper and surrounding villages in the Amber Valley. Most of our players have been playing as a team since they were seven years of age and have started their football career in our community programme which provides accessible football coaching for younger children.
This season - 2018/19 - we play in Group 3 of the Derby Junior Football League, with matches played at Alvaston Park, Derby.
Our club philosophy is based on providing our young players with the opportunity to play competitive football in a fair, fun and friendly environment, but also with discipline and competitiveness that will allow their football skills to develop and progress.
We train on Saturday mornings at our training ground in Belper led by our FA Level 1 FA qualified coaches.
