FST - Battersea Lions FC
Football skills coaching

Football Skills Training


Future Skills and Battersea Lions have worked together since 2009 to deliver quality football coaching and the opportunity to play competitive football in an organised league. We currently have an under 12s team competing in the Tandridge League.



To provide young people an affordable opportunity to be part of a football team, whatever their circumstances, ensuring the team remains diverse. 

To provide high level coaching to the young people who join the team.

To develop team work and effective communication skills in addition to other key personal and social skills, and encourage them to make friends. 

Where and When?

Training between October - March is at Battersea Park All Weather Pitch, and between April – September is at Wandsworth Common, Tuesdays 6.00 – 7.00pm.



Battersea Lions is coached by FA and UEFA qualified coach Ricky Hammond, who started Battersea Lions. He is supported by young coaches who were former Lions players and members of the Future Skills team.


Who are we?

FST is a charity based in Wandsworth, South London, that invests time in young people, enabling them to re-engage with education and employment.


We target young people aged between 11 and 19, who are excluded or at risk of exclusion from mainstream education, those that have offended or are at risk of offending, young people not in education, employment or training, and those socially marginalised. We seek to empower, support, care for and give hope to all the young people we encounter.


What do we do?

We provide a mix of educational and support services through a range of effective and targeted group activities and projects.
