Many thanks for checking out our website!
Here at MBFDC, we offer a variety of football opportunities utilising 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 and abilities from 4-16 years of age (boys and girls).
When the 3G floodlit synthetic pitch arrived in 2011, Kevin Lawrence was employed as the full time Head of Football Development at Mounts Bay Academy. Kevin who is a qualified PE teacher and UEFA B licensed coach, quickly established MBFDC where the centre has grown from strength to strength since 2011.
MBFDC in partnership with Cornwall FA and Plymouth Argyle, although we have connections with other professional clubs our strongest links are with Plymouth, who are indeed our nearest professional club in a County which is geographically challenged and devoid of a professional football club.
The County Player Pathway has been very successful in recent years with many MBFDC players being linked to professional clubs as well as playing at County, Regional and even National level. Our most recent success story is MBFDC player being selected for England. Read the full story here England Selection – Josh Storey
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. Apart from our community provision, we also host an array of schools festivals and tournaments every season providing adequate competitions for all to enjoy.
All MBFDC coaching staff are UEFA/FA qualified and DBS checked, allowing the players to develop within a professional and safe learning environment. If you are looking to have some fun, play football and receive some professional coaching then look no further!
