Press Statement

With considerable excitement, we can announce from September 2021; we will be fielding our first Junior football team; this will be for those who will be in Year 2 during the 2021/22 school year. We will be making further information available in due course. However, we would love to hear from anyone who would consider volunteering to be involved in the development and future growth of junior football in our community. If you would be prepared to help in any capacity, please contact us via email at the email address below or send a private message to this page.

We are currently keen to hear from anyone who might have an interest in becoming a football coach and working within the new Junior setup. The first step on this pathway is to take the Football Association introduction to Football coaching course. Please contact the email above for information.

If anyone is interested in one on one coaching and further development of football skills, please contact:
