September 2022

After almost 10 years of offering independent community coaching sessions to children, we have taken the very hard decision to cease all activities and stop all sessions at Benfield Sports Centre. Therefore we have agreed to move all operations under a new partnership with Newcastle East End FC.


Eastend Soccer Skills is a new player development pathway for boys and girls aged from 4 to 12 years of age. This has emerged from a collaboration between NEEFC Tekkers and Tyneside Kickers CIC in July 2022.

The philosophy and coaching syllabus across the ESS programme has been designed by Neil, a UEFA A licensed coach, and will be staffed by fully experienced and enthusiastic coaches.


1. Nursery Programe: 4-8 year olds

2. Development Programme: 8-12 year olds

3. Advanced Programme: 8-12 year olds


Registrations for September courses on a first-come first-served basis after 08 August 2022. We are unable to guarantee any child a place with Eastend Soccer Skills, however the link to the new booking page will be sent out direct via email to all current members very soon. May we also add that Eastend Soccer Skills have indicated to us what age groups they will operate, we have no say in the age banding they offer. Our only advice would be to visit the Benfield Sports Centre website HERE to see what other organisations may cater for 3yr olds or offer additional spaces for your child.


From 01 August customers will no longer have the ability to send us an email, our social media has already been taken down and this website shall be offline from Mid-August.
