When our 3G floodlit synthetic pitch arrived in 2011, along with it came the appointment of Kevin Lawrence who is full time Head of Football Development at Mounts Bay Academy. MBFDC was then launched and Kevin soon developed a passionate coaching team who all believe in the same coaching philosophy. Our aim is to provide a positive environment so players can learn, have fun and reach their full potential.
Kevin is a UEFA B coach and a qualified PE teacher, Kevin also has the FA youth awards enhancing his knowledge and understanding to develop players of all ages. Kevin is also a lead coach for both the District and County representative teams along with MBFDC Senior Coach – Frazer Cadman, and MBFDC Goal Keeper Coach – Dom Angove.
MBFDC has been running now for seven seasons and is hoping to prosper further by improved links with Cornwall FA, Cornwall Schools FA and the Plymouth Argyle Academy. We are also in association with global brand Nike and their national kit provider ‘kitlocker.com‘, who supply all our players and coaching staff with top of the range Nike kit and equipment. We also engage with the wider community and have many links with local schools and clubs. We host an array of schools festivals and tournaments every season proving adequate competitions for all to enjoy. Our facilities are also available for the local community to hire and beyond.
In association with Cornwall FA, we are very proud to be the Football Development Centre for the Penwith area and we are extremely passionate about developing local players. We are a feeder centre to the Plymouth Argyle Centre of Excellence and Academy, being our nearest professional club it is great to have such a strong link. This pathway has been very successful with many players being linked to professional clubs as well as playing at County, Regional and even National level.
All MBFDC coaching staff are UEFA/FA qualified and DBS checked, allowing the players to develop within a professional and safe learning environment.
We welcome players from any school or club, if you are looking to have some fun and receive some professional coaching then look no further. We hope to see you very soon!
