Today is our last session at Compass Gardens for a while.

Same time 9.00 – 10.00 (please note we will have to finish just before 10.00 to allow the next team on the pitch so please get there before 9.00 so your child gets the maximum benefit).

Important footwear information for the 3G pitch:

Below is a guide for permitted footwear. Please note all footwear must be clean and fee of mud. The best option for young children is Astroturf trainers. Flat bottom, normal trainers are allowed but the children will have virtually no grip and may spend more time slipping over than playing football. If in doubt please message us via Facebook.

Information for parents of current school year 1 children

Once we get into 2016 we will breaking these children away to form our U6 squads, ready to start their footballing careers officially upon reaching school year 2. Our plan is to have two squads to enter into local FA affiliated leagues.  We will give more details of how it all works in the New Year.

Over Christmas we have some food for thought. Our club is run entirely by volunteers. No volunteers = No club = No football.

Please consider you own involvement as a parent. We will need at least one (but ideally two) people to run each squad. We provide all FA foundation training free of charge, along with plenty of local support. What better way to work off the Christmas indulgence? For more info please approach one of us or call.

Darren Thompson – 07870 272665

Have a great Christmas and thank you for your continued support!

Important Club News Update:  18/06/15

AFC Woodham & Focus Ferrers to Join Forces

Both the towns Largest Youth Football Clubs, AFC Woodham & Focus Ferrers are now planning to join forces and form a new Club in South Woodham Ferrers.

After over a year of meetings and working together putting their cases forward for better facilities & working on a dedicated home for football in South Woodham Ferrers, both Clubs have agreed it would be more beneficial to gain funding from the FA, Sport England & provide a sturdy backing to work with the City Council for a purpose built venue in the Town.

From the start of the 2015-16 season will still see both Committees working with their own clubs, in addition to a joint committee working hard behind the scenes to ensure a smooth transition of all teams within both clubs merging in 2016-17 season.

One thing for sure is that both Clubs want as little disruption as possible and our aims are to keep all the same teams, players & coaches within the new Club together as they were.

A new name, logo & kit will be decided during the forthcoming season, and our first steps are to integrate both the AFC Superstrikers & Focus’ Development squads on a Saturday morning.

The merge will see 42 teams representing the new Club including development squad, Boys, Girls, Youth Football, U21, Adults & Vets teams.

Added to this the Club will be applying for FA Chartered Community Club status, a top status for all Youth Football Clubs.

To date both AFC Woodham & Focus Ferrers have been instrumental in securing a new 4G surface, currently under construction at South Woodham Leisure Centre and close communications have seen the pairing again working together to improve the playing areas at Saltcoats Park, meeting with the Town Council, Chelmsford City Councillors & Members of Parliament to put South Woodham’s poor footballing facilities on the Map.

From these meetings, extensive works are currently being carried out at Saltcoats Park to improve the playing surfaces.

Another project the Clubs are working on is to find a Footballing home for the Town.

A number of ideas have been put to the Council with a solid background of evidence to suggest this is the no.1 sporting majority for the town and both Clubs are confident they will be able to deliver good news very soon.

With both clubs sharing a ‘Football for all’ ethos this merge will see the town benefit from a well organised, well structured club with a clear vision for a better football facility in the town.
