All training sessions and home matches are played at our super training venue:
Petchey Academy, Shacklewell Lane, Dalston, E8 2EY.
Petchey Academy is well connected and is within 10 minutes walk of Dalston Kingsland, Dalston Junction, and Rectory Road Overground stations.
It’s also handy for the pub – the Shacklewell Arms is right opposite.

We always head to the Shacklewell Arms opposite after training for a drink and chat!
