Franklin United

Closes: 30 October, 2017

Franklin United – Want to play the long game….?

No, neither do we… but when it comes to the development of our Franklin community youth, we are in it for the long haul.  And this is why Franklin United are creating a Youth Academy to start in 2018.

Our philosophy for Franklin United Youth Academy (FUYA!) is about development, not purely winning.  We support the ‘Ole Way’ and our aim is to create players that can unlock complex football situations with intelligence and style while taking risks.  Franklin United (FU) member club DUFC have been building on this approach with the South Auckland Elite Academy since 2013.

We are looking for a FU Technical Director (TD) to lead our newly created academy and continue the style we have adopted.  It goes like this….

  1. All teams must play an attacking, attractive and entertaining brand of football.
  2. All teams must play fair.
  3. All teams must try to win the game, but not at the expense of steps 1 and 2.

Ultimately our aim is to produce players to play NRFL football as a stepping stone to brighter whiter things……!

Please submit your application with cover letter to:

Our active membership is just over 400 with half being Junior /Youth and half Senior.

We have developed a strategic direction for the club which includes the juniors meshing into the NZF Whole of Football Plan (“First Kicks”) and as well a cross club coaching development plan that will enable us to ensure all players attain to an appropriate skill level and at the same time push those who are high performers enabling members to play at the highest level they are capable of and thereby giving them a reason to stay with the club in the future.

Our ‘flavour’ is family oriented and whilst we are not in the NRFL we have had a presence in the Div 1 & 2 leagues and are intent on returning after being relegated this past season.

We are therefore seeking applications for a First Team (Conference League) Coach.
