AFC Leyton have gone on to play for Watford, West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Millwall and at Essex and Charlton Regional Talent Centres as well as England U15s training camps.

For schools, we are also offering free football development sessions for your existing girls' teams to try out our professional UEFA coaching.  This programme is designed to get girls interested and stay in football/team sports.
