Our new 5-year plan, devised during the summer of 2017, is based on the special foundations that stand Mousehole AFC apart from all other clubs in the county: our culture of, togetherness, sense of history and community-mindedness
In short, we have a burning desire to progress – to build a truly amazing club: the highest-performing, best-run, most self-sustaining football club in Cornwall.
We have a footballing philosophy which says that ambition and progress are best served by developing our own talent rather than buying-in short-term success.
We have a well-run, ambitious Committee, with responsible people taking dedicated roles in key development areas
We are building a sustainable commercial model, based on mutually beneficial relationships with key partners who are genuine football people
We have a great ground in a beautiful part of Cornwall, and we have plans for its continuous improvement
We have loyal and passionate supporters, who want (and deserve) the club to thrive both on and off the pitch
The first initiative in our new plan for the future is the establishment of our long-term player development programme for ages 5 to 16, and Elite Programme for 16 to 23 year-olds. Led by experts, this offers word-class state-of-the-art coaching, education and support, with a ground breaking initiative of 66% of the First team squad being Elite Programme players.
We will be identifying 6 ‘Club Pros’, excellent senior players / winners, who will have responsibility to the club, supporters, Development Programme and Elite players for setting standards of behaviour and attitude, owning the footballing philosophy and demonstrating values such as work ethic, personal aspiration and sportsmanship
The leadership of the First team, Reserves and Development Programme will work as one integrated team to train, think and focus in a unified “New Mousehole” way to achieve the club’s goals together.
We will make our community proud!
