As we move into autumn, GHFC training will switch to Harefield Academy from Tuesday 7th September.

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


Every Monday Tuesday, 8-9pm (n.b. our training day has now changed to Mondays from 8 Nov). 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 middle pitch. Recommended footwear is astros, moulds or trainers (not studs). You may also wish to wear shinpads.


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). Our code of conduct indicates that squad players should aim for an attendance rate of 75% or more (do get in touch if this is unrealistic for you). If you can't be at training then please either denote yourself as 'unavailable' in Matchday or put a message on our group or drop Pete a text on 07732 607602 - this will help us to plan sessions for those attending.

We are currently open to new players so feel free to invite a friend along. When doing so please give them an idea of the cost that they'll be expected to contribute (as per below) as the facilities at the school are not cheap to hire.


£60 per term (term = Sep-Dec or Jan-Apr)
or for those able to make it less freqently:
£6 per session
More details of payment of subs to follow very soon.


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