Many thanks for checking out our website!
Here at MBFDC, we offer a variety of football opportunities using state of the art facilities, based at Mounts Bay Academy in Penzance, Cornwall. Our coaching and development programmes cater for a range of age groups from 4-16 years of age. When the floodlit 3G synthetic pitch arrived in 2011, along with it came the appointment of full time Head of Football Development, Mr Kevin Lawrence.
Since then, Kevin has transformed the football offer at Mounts Bay Academy and has created a real football ‘buzz’ on site. In 2011, Mounts Bay Football Development Centre was born and a passionate team of coaching staff developed over time. MBFDC is now an established sports hub and key football centre within the Penwith area.
Our centre has been running now for seven seasons and is hoping to prosper further by improved partnerships with Mounts Bay Academy, Cornwall FA and Plymouth Argyle. We are now in association with global brand Nike and their national kit provider ‘kitlocker.com‘, who will supply all our players and coaching staff with top of the range Nike kit and equipment for the coming 2017/18 season.
In such a short time, we have many special memories including many current and alumni players being linked with professional clubs. We are also very proud to consistently develop players who year on year progress into both the West Cornwall Schoolboys and full County representative teams.
All MBFDC coaches are FA qualified and DBS checked, allowing the players to develop within a professional and safe learning environment. 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 and also allow the community to use and hire our on site facilities.
Please look throughout our website, you will notice many opportunities available for both boys and girls. We also cater for a range of abilities so if you are new to the game or very talented then their is a programme perfect for you.
We hope to see you soon!
With kind regards
