Our Mission

London United Football School was created to give children in NW3 and the surrounding North West London areas an opportunity to play football under the guidance of professional, passionate football coaches.

Our aim has always been to provide a service which exceeds than other local football classes and camps at a more competitive price. We aim to employ the best coaches on the market, pay them an honest rate and let them impart their knowledge to the kids.

London United Football School is about more than just football – we aim to teach kids important life and social skills including leadership and teamwork, problem solving, concentration and discipline.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is quite simple but we feel is effective! With the success we have seen the kids make, we believe we are making great strides of progress. By providing sessions which demand a high intensity, realism, relevance and repetition the kids are getting quality coaching which makes the transition from training into matches a much smoother one. In match-play the children have a great opportunity to implement what they have learned, to think for themselves and work out problems in teams.

From a young age, we work with the kids on their technique as we feel this is the fundamental skill in football. Without the right technique the whole structure of progress falls apart. As the kids get older, we work a lot on their game sense and being in stressful scenarios in matches.

The proof of success is always the progression of our kids. We are very proud of the players and coaches alike.

Our Promise

We promise to put every bit of energy we have into making sure that the children are challenged to learn, practice their technique, and have the opportunity to implement what they have learnt in match scenarios, whilst being in a safe and fun environment.

He loves his job and has developed LUFS from a small soccer school to coaching over 100 ids a week. Lorenc also happens to be a massive LFC fan, luckily his mood isnt too effected on them winning or losing (most of the time).

Jake Goodson
Jake Goodson

FA Qualified Coach

Jake was once a regular member of the classes, he's now one of our number of excellent coaches, wise beyond his years, calm and composed when working with the kids. Jake is meticulous about detail and loves coaching, the kids look up to him like a hero and he's very respected by his fellow coaches for his time keeping and seriousness to coaching. Jake is a Man united fan but fortunately we still keep him onboard.

Finn Driscoll
Finn Driscoll

FA Qualified Coach

Finn is the more notorious member of the coaching team, he was an excellent player and still plays at an excellent level. Often heard talking about football, more precisely "Pogba is the best in the world" or how "united are going to win the league next year". Finns football knowledge goes from champions league to italian 3rd division. In other words he's just a football addict.

Valentine Mbewe

Head of Football Development

Valentine is the second in command at the club, working with Lorenc for the last 10 years, they are friends on and off the pitch. Valentine is doing his A license. Having worked abroad and in the academy system, developing players to go to academy, Valentine has a wealth of knowledge and stories. A softly spoken man of few words, he is a goldmine of experience and football coaching knowledge. Valentine is very respected by his fellow coaches and even more loved by the players for his calmness.

Ben Lever
Ben Lever

FA Qualified Coach

Ben himself as a player was the Gary Neville of fullbacks, consistent, first on the team sheet and up and down the pitch. His coaching isn't any different, he's excited to coach, consistent energy in every session, full of technical detail and always focused on improving the players. Ben is a huge man united fan and regularly goes to games.

James Nolan
James Nolan

FA Qualified Coach

James came as a package with Jakes, best friends since childhood, not too different. Focused on the job, loves working with kids and is continuously trying to better his coaching. James is a Scoucer and a massive LFC fan so he's great to have in the coaching team (depending on how LFC got on).

Louis Spitz
Louis Spitz

FA Qualified Coach

Louis started coaching with us 2 years ago and has made great progress as a coach. Always precise about detail, always early to his sessions, loves challenging his groups to get better. Louis is another UCS boy but luckily for everyone involved, he's much calmer and sensible when he opens his mouth.

Tom Phillips
Tom Phillips

FA Qualified Coach

Tom is one of our biggest successes as a club, he came to us as tinny boy who just wanted to play football and talk about "how good Arsenal are". He's now giving back by helping the next generation of kids by implementing all the knowledge he's gained over years. Tom loves coaching and is always reading books on how to better develop his sessions, always asking the more senior coaches on advice on how to improve his coaching. We have high hopes for him.
