Our Coaching Team 


Head Coach: Dave Rotheram




Coach: Giles Lock

Having stood on the touchline watching my eldest son play football for a number of years now, I am delighted to be able to offer something back by getting involved with coaching my younger son's team - the U9 Rockets.

At U9 level, I firmly believe the football should be about fun and inclusivity, with all players having the opportunity to rotate though the varying positions on a regular basis.  We will place a clear emphasis on team spirit and attitude, rather than on actual results.  First and foremost, a successful season will see the team all enjoying themselves, while gaining a better understanding of positional awareness and the basics of attacking, defending and passing.  If the results follow, then that's just an added bonus.


Coach:  Bertie Dannatt

A lifelong Norwich City Fan who believes that U9s football should be primarily about learning to the pass the ball, work as a team and have fun!

It is my first season on the job and I am looking forward to working with our excellent UEFA qualified coach, overseeing the team on Saturdays (with two other volunteer Dads) and watching the team develop over the season.
