The Football Development League is a London, UK based youth football competition for grassroots, academy and community teams hosted by Greatly Nurtured Development (GND), an elite sports development provider based in London, England. For more information about GND, visit www.gndsportshub.com

Our competitions provide opportunities for players to hone their talent, improve their play and be rewarded for their successes multiple times throughout the season. We have two winter tournaments and two summer tournaments that simultaneously run side by side across one season. We have two unique competitions - our Football Development League and our Futsal Development League.

Meet Our Staff

Chairperson - Euon Brown

When Euon left school, he immediately signed for QPR on a professional youth contract. He was offered England U16s school boy trials, but injury halted his opportunity. After his recovery he was offered Grenada U17s international trial. After a successful trial, he went on to represent Grenada as an international youth from U17 level as captain through to U21 level..

At senior level, Euon had stints in Sweden, Finland and Denmark before being called up to represent Grenada at senior international level in 2009 at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Unfortunately a succession of injuries were Euon's downfall and never quite recovered from them becoming injury prone. He was consequently advised to retire by doctors and made an official decision to retire from professional football in 2012.

Since retiring from football, Euon developed skills and qualifications in football coaching, personal training, and mentoring. He has a corporate working career in programme management and was appointed Chairperson of the Football Development League in 2019. His aim is to drive the Football Development League forward by providing an opportunity for players to provide legacies for themselves.


Lead First Aider and Administrator - Shakira Green

Shakira has been a lover of sports as far back as she can remember, setting records in secondary school for winning the 100m 4 years in a row. She is also a winner of the Sporthan, which is an obstacle course where 20 different school competitors challenge each other over two days. 


Football is Shakira's truest passion however. Shakira had trials at Charlton Athletic and Millwall FC as a teenager. After unsuccessful trials she chose not to pursue professional football, but still had a burning desire to contribute to the game.


Shakira's career has been a fantastic one so far. She is an FA qualified coach and first aider. Shakira also has a career in IT. Shakira has a vision of heading up her own women's football academy and continues to build on a solid reputation within the football community.


Head of Media - Dylan Sowden

Dylan has always loved football and played 6 years of Sunday league football. The love of the game led Dylan to become an FA qualified football coach and combine it with his career in media.


Dylan is also a huge fan of gaming, in particular e-sports. He has won two amateur e-sports tournaments and hopes to progress into the professional ranks.

Dylan is also into cycling and is talented programmer and coder. He has developed his own games and uploaded them on to the App Store and Google Play.

Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions govern the contract between you and us to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions save for those implied by law, and no variation to these terms and conditions shall be valid unless in writing and signed by you and the company director.

Formation of Contract

No contract shall arise between you and us until we have received the deposit payable and we have sent to you written confirmation (this can be in the form of an email) of our acceptance of your booking.

Lead Name

The lead name on any booking with us accepts the full responsibility of collecting the full balance payable for the booking and protects us against any loss from any individual failing to pay within your group. The lead name of the group is also responsible for ensuring that all group members are aware they are bound by our terms and conditions. The lead name is also responsible for the completion of the online guest list on behalf of all persons on the booking. It is understood that those booking via email or telephone agree to, and accept our terms and conditions.

Payment & Deposits

Deposits are payable at the time of booking and the balance of payments are split into the following phases:

i) £100 non-refundable deposit is payable at the time of booking.

ii) The final balance is to be paid no less than 60 Days (or date given upon booking if different) before the date upon which your event is due to start. Failure to pay by this date will result in a £10.00 per person late payment charge.

If you do not make your deposit payments by the due dates given, then you shall be deemed to have cancelled the event. Deposits are used by us to enter into the contractual arrangements on your behalf and are non-refundable. Payments can be made with a valid Credit Card or Debit Card, online bank transfers or cheque(s) made payable to “Greatly Nurtured Development Limited” where upon receipt we will endeavour to place the booking for you at the same price, although this cannot be guaranteed. We will however notify you should there be an increase in price. If a promised cheque is not received or does not clear upon presentation, we hold the right to cancel the reservation. Non-clearing or returned unpaid cheque will incur a £30.00 transaction charge.

Cancellation by Us

We may cancel the event or any part of it: for safety reasons if we or our supplier(s) regard adverse weather conditions or other safety concerns as unacceptable and which cannot reasonably be overcome; If we reasonably believe that you may cause harm or damage to our reputation or to the reputation of our suppliers or to property belonging to our suppliers; If a supplier or suppliers are unable to host the event for any reason; If changes you wish to make to the booking mean it is uneconomical or impractical to hold the event. If we cancel the whole of the event, we shall use our best endeavours to rearrange the event on a mutually convenient date, or provide a refund to you of the cost to us of the event. Except as above, we shall be under no further liability to you for cancellation of the event or any part of it.

Cancellation by You

You may cancel your booking within a period of 14 days after the initial deposit however this initial deposit is non-refundable. After 14 days you may cancel your booking, however all deposits and (if applicable) any additional payments made to date on the booking are non-refundable. All cancellations must be made in writing from the lead name on the booking. 

Failure to Provide an Event

If, due to reasons beyond our control, an event is unable to take place due to (but without limitation); closure of premises, the ceases of trading, a change in supplier management, weather restrictions, we will provide you and your group with an alternative event and if this is does not prove possible, a refund to you of the cost to us of the event.

Greater Force

(a)  If by reason of greater force of any kind, cancellation of the event by the stadium operators, or any other event beyond the reasonable control of Greatly Nurtured Development, or Greatly Nurtured Development is or anticipates that it will be prevented or hindered from fulfilling  the substance of its obligations under this Agreement then Greatly Nurtured Development shall immediately ensure that the client is aware of the occurrence of any such event and the client shall be entitled at any time thereafter, so long as such cause still subsists, to cancel or suspend this Agreement by notice in writing to the Company.

(b)  In the event of cancellation or suspension pursuant to Greater Force clause (a) above, Greatly Nurtured Development shall be under no liability to the Participants or the Spectators for any loss which they may sustain in consequence of any such cancellation or suspension. Greatly Nurtured Development shall, in the event of such cancellation, be under no liability to the client in respect of its future obligations under this Agreement and in the event of suspension shall be relieved of such obligations under this Agreement for the period of such suspension.

(c)  In the event of abandonment of part or parts of Greatly Nurtured Development’s obligations as aforementioned, the client shall be provided a refund of the cost to us of the competition and all package fees.

Alterations & Surcharges Applied by Us

(a) If due to circumstances beyond our control it becomes necessary to substitute an alternative supplier, or make any other alterations to the event, we shall inform you of the changes as soon as possible. You must pay any additional cost due to such changes. If the changes are, in the view of Greatly Nurtured Development, so substantial as to materially alter the event and you are unwilling to accept them then you may cancel the event and we will give a refund of the cost of the event to us. Surcharges may be applicable where an event requires a minimum number of participants to proceed, and the group does not meet this minimum number. This could lead to the cancellation of the event of which we are not held responsible and alternatives may be offered of an equal or greater value. If this value is greater, then you must pay us the difference in price.

(b) All prices are calculated on the basis and condition that the minimum group size for your competition agreed at or before the time of booking is achieved by you. In the event that the number of paying group members confirmed by the specified deadline is less than the applicable minimum, we will offer you the choice of paying an adjusted price based on the actual group size, where it is possible, for us to operate the competition with a smaller number than the minimum group size. Where we cannot do so or you do not wish to accept the adjusted price, your booking will be cancelled. Providing the minimum group size is achieved when the final balance is paid, we will not, however, adjust the price or cancel for this reason in the event that your group falls below the minimum size at a later stage. Please note, payment of an adjusted price as a result of the group size being smaller than the agreed minimum is not an alteration of the price agreed for the tour at the time of booking. This is an option we offer where we can as an alternative to cancellation where you have been unable to meet the minimum group size condition applicable to your booking.

Alterations Made by You

We shall try to accommodate any reasonable changes you wish to make to the event. Alterations and amendment requests should be made with us and not end suppliers and should be made in writing to us by the lead name. These changes shall not be deemed accepted until we have confirmed in writing to you. If you wish to increase or decrease the number of persons participating in the event you may do this up to six weeks prior to the date upon which your event is due to start. Amendments after that date will incur our administration charge of £10.00 per person. Subject to our written agreement you may transfer your booking to a person who satisfies all the conditions applicable to the event. 

Your Obligations

You shall always behave in a safe, responsible and courteous manner; comply with all instructions; regulations and codes of practice issued by us or our suppliers; ensure that you comply with all age restrictions imposed by our suppliers; ensure that you comply with all arrival times, and dress appropriately for the event.

The lead name is officially in charge of the group and is responsible for ensuring that the group will be fully and properly supervised at all times and that all instructions and guidance we provide are followed. The lead name also warrants that at least one accompanying supervising adult will be on duty at all times throughout the duration of the competition. The supervising adults are responsible for the good behaviour and discipline of the group throughout the competition. No group member under 18 years will be allowed to consume alcoholic beverages without prior written consent of their parent/guardian and no member of the group will be permitted to smoke at any competition venues, unless stated in a designated area. The lead name is also responsible for ensuring that all group members are specifically made aware of the above obligations prior to the competition commencement.

If you breach these obligations we may cancel or curtail the event or any part of it and in those circumstances, you shall not be entitled to any refund.


You shall take out necessary insurance suitable for your needs before the event. It is important that your insurance includes cover for participating in sporting activities.

Our Obligations

We shall take reasonable care and skill in arranging the event and comply with all applicable laws in relation to the event; where ever possible, re-schedule the event instead of cancelling or offer a refund to you of the cost to us of the event. All of the photographs and illustrations we use on our website and in literature (including quotations) we send you are for marketing purposes and may not entirely represent the actual products received. 

Customer Feedback

If you have an issue whilst at any of our competitions, then you must contact info@footballdevelopmentleague.co.uk at the earliest opportunity. Unless there is a valid reason why you did not report your issue to the appropriate person(s), we will not consider ourselves liable for those complaints. If they are unable to resolve matters to your satisfaction then you must write to us within 7 days of the conclusion of the event. No complaint will be accepted outside of this time frame thus deeming you fully satisfied with all aspects of the event and the services we have provided to you. We will acknowledge any correspondence within 5 working days and endeavour to deal with the complaint as quickly as possible.

Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999

No part of this agreement shall confer on any third party any benefit or right to enforce any terms of this agreement.

Where we may rely on your consent to process personal information, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. In some instances, we may have an alternative legal basis to continue to process that personal information and we will inform you of that. If you do withdraw consent, we may not be able to provide the product or service you have requested.

Other Rights​

You may request a copy of your personal information from Greatly Nurtured Development which may hold personal information about you. You can also ask us to correct any inaccuracies in your personal information.

You may also have the right to object, erase, or restrict our processing of your information – for example, where we process personal data because this is in our legitimate interests, you may object to this. We will need to carefully consider your request, as there may be circumstances which require us, or allow us to continue processing your data.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us at info@gndhub.com. These rights may be restricted by law, for example we may not be able to provide a copy of your data where the data we hold is also the data of a third party and it is not reasonable to disclose this information.

Retention of Personal Information​

We will retain your information for as long as necessary for the uses set out in this Policy, or while there is a legitimate reason for doing so. If you ask us to delete your information before that time, we may not be able to do so due to legal, regulatory or contractual constraints. For example, we would need to retain your name and contact details for suppression purposes if you do not want to receive direct marketing from us.

If you ask for your account to be closed, we will do this as soon as is reasonably possible subject to any applicable terms and conditions relating to the account. Personal information from closed accounts is retained in order to comply with legal obligations, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed and to resolve disputes.

Changes to Policy​

From time to time we make changes to this Policy. This may be in relation to changes in the law, best practice, changes in our services or treatment of your personal information. Where necessary, we will notify you of these changes. We will always display clearly when the privacy policy was last amended on the website.
