Dorking Wanderers Development – Season 2021/22

Have Fun - Support Others – Express Yourself - Be Brave

DWYD prioritises Player Development over Team Results, identifying & recruiting the best local talent, then helping these players develop the technical, physical, social & psychological skills necessary to maximise their potential.

 

DWYD teams play attractive, free-flowing, possession-based football, encouraging players to take risks and not fear failure. We aim to produce intelligent, courageous and well-rounded individuals, who are a credit to the club, both on and off the pitch.
