Raw Skills is one of the youngest junior football clubs around, but since our formation we have become one of the biggest – and best regarded – clubs in our area. The club was formed when the first cohort of eight- and nine-year olds graduated from Russ Watkinson’s Raw Skills Soccer School. Keen to build on the passion for the game that Russ had engendered in the boys, a group of parents decided to enter a team in the Crowborough League under 9 division – and in a way little has changed since then.

219 Players

The club has thrived since its inception and now, in the 2019/20 season, has some 223 players playing in 18 sides in two leagues.


Enquiries from new prospective players are always welcome from age groups from under 8 to under 16.


We organise an annual barbecue and various other social events over the course of the year.

Soccer School

We have a close link with the Raw Skills Soccer School, which is run by its founder Russ Watkinson, an ex-professional footballer.  The Soccer School trains youngsters from the age of four and a half and runs midweek and holiday training for members of our club.
