Andy, ......enjoy your football?....
Conifers don't really stop growing....they are just slow growing when described as "dwarf"
Did you want erect, narrow conifers? The junipers....aurea, striata, etc. ..can be maintained at 8' as can many others. However, the yews...Taxus.....provide some lovely varieties that are easy to control and are easy to grow. Standishii is a favourite of mine...lovely olive winter colour amd yellow summer colour. Takes hard pruning into old wood too.
There are lots of mound forming conifers too and, again, if pruned yearly, can be easily kept to size
