As we move into autumn, GHFC training will switch to Harefield Academy from Monday 5th September.

Here are all the key details about our new training setup ...


Every Monday, 8-9pm. If possible please look to arrive a few minutes early (circa 7:55pm) so that we can start promptly at 8 and get our full hour in.


Outdoor 3G Astroturf pitch, The Harefield Academy, Northwood Way, Harefield, UB9 6ET.

We have been asked to access the outdoor 3G pitch via the side gate (go left past reception around the outside of the building, before turning right through the gate - the outdoor astro is then on your left) and will be on the far pitch. Recommended footwear is astros, moulds or trainers (not studs). You may also wish to wear shinpads (optional).


In the main we will play matches, sometimes with conditions attached to them to help us focus on a particular element of our game. We'll also sometimes include a small element of fitness work and some exercises to improve our skills and technique.


Open to all squad players and also to other non-Saturday players (subject to capacity). In previous years we've sought to maximise attendance amongst those also involved on a Saturday, but given our recent player turnover it's sensible for us to keep tabs on availability and exactly how we use our Monday night slot this season.


£6 per session, capped at a maximum of £60 per term (term = Sep-Dec or Jan-Apr).
We'll keep a record of attendances and will let people know what they owe every couple of months. If bringing a friend along please give them an idea of the cost that they'll be expected to contribute as the facilities at the school are not cheap to hire.


There's a large car park within the grounds of Harefield Academy, though do car share where possible. If anybody is without transport then please notify and we'll try to arrange something.
