Ben Garrett, Director
Garrett Whitelock is a passionate supporter of grassroots football and is very proud to sponsor Elmstead Football Club’s Under 8s football team.
The team practises on Saturdays and plays competitive matches on Sundays and we’re extremely impressed by the hard work and commitment of all players in our squad.
Elmstead FC was founded in 1958 and is based at Chislehurst Recreation Ground. The club’s goal is to provide the best coaching and facilities for players of all ages and to give children from under 7 upwards the opportunity to experience high quality football in a fun and friendly environment and improve their skills. The club runs numerous teams for children and adults and prides itself on its friendly atmosphere and professional team management. Elmstead FC has close links with the local and wider community and welcomes children and parents from all backgrounds.
The club uses FA certified coaches and operates a very strict code of conduct and child protection policy. All coaches, managers and volunteers are strictly vetted against the FA DBS process before entering the club.
Additionally, the club has a close association with MAVD Coaching, which runs coaching schools to allow boys and girls as young as three years old to gain all the basic ball skills to progress to a level where they can integrate in the club’s under 7 team.
