Will my son / daughter play every week?

Some teams have large squads so there may be an element of rotation. We are an inclusive club and try to get players playing as much as possible. We don't take people on 'trial', we want to be the largest sporting club in the area providing the best facilities and coaching. We want happy players enjoying their football week in, week out.

Do I have to buy kit?

We provide match day kit and if we can find a generous sponsor we provide training tops. All you need are shinpads (essential), the right footwear and a drink. If it's chilly make sure they have plenty of layers.

Are your coaches qualified?

Every coach has to be a minimum FA Level 1 to have any involvement. On top of that there is the DBS (used to be known as CRB [criminal records] checks and First Aid courss that every has to complete and carry out a refresher course. Some coaches are FA Level 2 and that menas they can provide specialist goal keeper training.

Is there a cabin to get drinks?

Of course! On the Newsham Road pitches we have our own Falcons Cafe selling hot drinks and food. We are always looking for volunteers so if you can spare a couple of hours serving bacon buns you will be helping the cause.
