New stretch target

If we meet our initial target for our winter jackets there are always further kit and training equipment that is needed for our squad. Each tournament entered we have to pay a fee so any extra money raised will go towards entering the boys in these tournaments also, we will also spend the money on the following over the up and coming seasons:

Boot bags
Training kit


Equipment (goals, footballs, agility cones, subs bench)

All these items improve the experience of all our young players. 

Lets Keep Our Kestrels Warm

The MK Wanderers Under 8’s Kestrels are a young passionate local football team made up of local children from Milton Keynes. The team have come together over the last 12 months through their love of football to form a team full of determination, pride, passion and great friendship. 

Last season being the U7 Kestrels, they played their matches in a mis-match hand me down kit provided by the club but with many ill fitting tops with sleeves too long and with shorts too long over the knee's, this however did not stop the team enjoying and playing some fantastic football and wearing their colours with pride. Whether it be wind, rain or snow early every Saturday morning or at late night training on a Wednesday evening the boys turn up week in week out with the new friends for life they have made to play the game they all love. 

The squad attends all season matches and friendlies in the surrounding area against local grass root football clubs and participate in multiple tournaments including the elite football tournament held at the home of the MK:DONS at the Stadium MK!

We have a new fantastic Kit sponsor which has kindly provided funding so we could purchase our brand new Nike affiliated match kit however...

This is where we need your help!!!

This season, this committed group of boys deserve to be wearing their winter jackets with the MK Wanderer's crest on to keep them warm, whether it be at training or on the sidelines protected from the elements. Football is a winter sport and although we are currently basking in a heat wave the winter months will soon be upon us with the team braving all weathers on those cold Saturday mornings.

The money raised will buy the whole squad including our dedicated volunteer coaches, who also stand on the sidelines whatever the weather, their winter jackets for the forthcoming season.

Any donation no matter how big or small would go a long way to building this grassroots youth football team. Thank you from everyone at the U8’s MK Wanderers Kestrels.
