At Axten FC we are a family and even the youngest members are involved. Roxy Johnson (right) plays in the Under 10s team whilst Harvey Johnson (left) is Captain of the Under 12s team and also attends most of the younger players 1-2-1 training sessions. If your child is shy or lacks confidence, this can be a fantastic way of putting your child at ease from start of the very first session. Harvey is also a very talented footballer himself and passes his knowledge onto the players in his role as assistant coach.

Knowledge is Power

Chemistry between player and coach is vital to success. Throughout all of our sessions the coach will create a comfortable and relaxed environment to give you or your child the confidence that your game will definitely improve.

No player is the same so no session should be the same. We'll create a completely bespoke program for you. No matter what you need to work on, whether its your technique, your fitness or your confidence, you'll see improvements from your first session.

Whether you're new to the game and want to improve your basic football skills, a youth player looking to get into a Football Academy or a Professional who is low on confidence we'll develop a structured program for you, focused on achieving your goals at all times.

What do people say?

"Hi, I'm Nicholas, I'm 17 years old and I've had the pleasure of working with Axten for the last 8 months. Coach Floyd took me under his wing in February of 2018 and turned me not only into a better footballer, but also turned me into a better man. Reaching out to him for help was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. In February I was a lost 16 year old who loved football, however I didn't believe I was good enough to play football and thought it was too late to even attempt to do so. The only people who thought that wasn't true were my parents, my brother and Coach Floyd. Floyd put up with my whining, complaining and helped me overcome all of those problems. Thanks to him I am now an Academy player, and I'm looking forward to what the future holds for us, as this success was a team effort. I can honestly say no other coach has ever supported me as much as Coach Floyd has. Whenever I had any sort of problems the Axten family were always there for me, which I am forever grateful. Those ups and downs made our bond stronger. Thank you to my beautiful mother, my extraordinary father and the best brother I could ask for. Thank you to Coach Floyd and the rest of the Axten 121 family for trusting the process and believing in me, even when I didn't." Niko Lambe, EDSV Academy (09/11/2018)

"Mason came to Axten with just some basic knowledge of football. Floyd took the time to extensively equaluate what area's he needed to work on, he had lots of patience and a great approach. We feel very thankful because he didn't just teach our son the game but he taught him some important life skills which will stay with Mason. Mason thoroughly enjoyed the sessions with Floyd and made a great friendship with his son Harvey. We hope to work with Floyd again soon. Mason is training with a number of professional football clubs now and he is also part of Selsdon u7's and plays games on a Sunday." (12/3/2018)

"Floyd has been working with Tariqe to develop his strength, football skills and vision. Floyd has always presented himself in a polite and professional manner. His work ethics are impeccable and he has provided us with sound advice. We have (and continue to) value the support and contribution he brings!”​ Ethel Fosu, Mother of Tariqe Fosu, Professional Brentford FC Forward

"Mr Johnson is one of the nicest people you will ever come across. I'm pleased to let everyone know that he is the main reason behind my son's success. Mr Johnson has a great relationship with players as they always see that he takes so much interest in them at the highest level. Ryheem's success is the hard work of Mr Johnson and he continues to be fully behind Ryheem”​ Marcia Scheckleford, Mother of Ryheem Scheckleford, Professional Fulham FC Right Back

"Last season I worked with Floyd during the FA Youth Cup Semi Final and Final doing 1-2-1 analysis. This helped me to fill in the missing pieces and go onto have an outstanding game against Chelsea in the final. I have since signed my pro contract with Fulham FC and continue to work with Floyd to help me in the next stages of my football career”​ Ryheem Scheckleford, Professional Fulham FC Right Back

"Tia, my daughter absorbs Floyd's every word and attempts to implement all of his suggestions. She has progressed under Floyd's direction to play for Fulham Girls FC, Millwall Lionesses and she is currently cross signed for Charlton Women FC U15 and U16. Tia's success can be attributed to Floyd, who has been instrumental in instructing and coaching her, building confidence in her ability and providing direction to develop positional strength. It's not suprising that we are very grateful to have met him" Pip Murray, Mother of Tia Bailey, West Ham United Ladies/ EDSV Academy

"During my sessions with Floyd we worked together on my mental game, my confidence and fitness. He also prepared me for trials and as a result of the sessions I got signed for Charlton Women U15/U16 last season. I really enjoy my sessions. Floyd makes everything easy to understand and is always there to support me”​ Tia Bailey, West Ham United Ladies/ EDSF Academy

"As soon as I started working with Floyd he helped me improve as a player. He comes to watch me play and gives me advice and the 1-2-1 sessions have been very useful in improving my game.”​ Freya Glenn, Loyola Chicago Women's Soccer and Scotland International

"Floyd has been a constant support for Freya and has given her the confidence to grow as a player. He always gives her very useful feedback for improvement and has a very positive and friendly attitude. It is good to know that he is always available for her" Elaine Scott, Mother of Freya Glenn, Loyola Chicago. Women's Soccer Team

"Axten was the first team I ever played for. I first started playing for Axten at the age of 7 for the under 8s team, and from then played two more seasons there until I moved to Tottenham Hotspur under 11s. Floyd was my manager during my time at Axten and really helped me in my development as a football player. He coached me very well and taught me a range of skills and the fundamental basics of football. At Axten, he always believed in my ability and supported me immensely and I wouldn't have made my progressions in football without his help in the first stages of my career. Even since Axten, he has made time to meet up with me and given me one-to-one advice and tips on how to improve my confidence in football and also came to watch my games when I was playing for Chelsea under 15s. I currently now play for Millwall Lionesses under 17s and recently played in the under 17 European Qualifiers with the Wales under 17 international squad. I don't believe I would have achieved this without my playing time under Floyd and the further encouragement and support he's given me since." Immy Lancaster, Millwall Lionesses U17 and Wales International Player

"Through my sessions Floyd helped me to turn the weaknesses in my game into strengths using the theory of football and practical tools" Ayo Majekodunmi, age 18

"In my first session with Floyd he analyzed me and told me that I was a striker. I am now 16 and he has helped me to learn my position inside and out and the importance of my role within the team. Not only does he help on the pitch he helps off it. With my footballers diet, telling me what things are good to eat and what is not good to eat. He also helps me with my fitness, giving me good regimes to do to build my strength. During the 1-2-1 sessions Floyd designs drills for you to ensure that you leave the session better both physically and mentally" (14/4/2016) Jesse Richard, age 16

"My name is Broghan and I play for Chelsea Under 10s. I started this season with Axten FC. Floyd helped me understand my position, simplifying it, so it was easy for me to understand and helped me to read the game much better. It was great fun." Brogan, Chelsea Football Club Under 10s (15/11/18)

"Floyd is a great coach who is passionate about sport. He has been coaching my nine-year-old son in improving his goalkeeping skills. In addition to this, Floyd has also taught Rishan the skill of visualisation which has significantly improved his mental focus and has also helped him in all his sporting activities. I believe that this additional mental focus has helped Rishan get through to and win Gold at the England swimming finals for his age group.” Rishan, English Swimming Champion (27/11/18)
