Couldn’t be happier with the set up

It was lovely to be able to tell the mum of a new to the club boy in the other team how encouraging and dedicated Sharks coaches are. The boys are lucky to have you Adam  and Rich. Thanks for all you do.

Very good coach, we are blessed to have him, my son is always looking forward to going. Thank you.

The club is well run and they always do their best for kids. 5/5 Stars!

Excellent, friendly, and well committed team. Can’t fault one bit.

Great club. Well run and the boys all enjoy playing for LPR! 5 Stars

A very well run club with my sons interests totally at heart. Very friendly and no pressure to become a superstar player. Would recommend LPR to any child that likes football.
