August 2015

Facilities

We have a wide range of quality facilities with dedicated pitches for U5s up to U16s. The playing surfaces don't get overuse and stay in tip top quality throughout the season. The weather does sometimes affect matches as it does for any other team.

Support from the FA

Working with our partners in North Riding County FA we ensure volunteers are kept up to date with coaching techniques, first aid, child protection and the skills required to sustain and grow a local sporting club.

Clubhouse

Being part of Thirsk Athletic and Sports Association we have use of a fantastic clubhouse to host events.

Keeping you informed

We keep parents informed via team emails, local press coverage, club-wide newsletters and our dedicated website.

Dedicated volunteers

The club couldn't exist without its band of dedicated volunteer coaches and other supporters who staff our cafe, write press articles, sometimes mow the grass and manage sporting equipment so our players have the best facilities in the area. This coupled with an unrivaled fundraising team makes Falcons what it is - a real community club with community spirit.

Our parents and players

We couldn't thrive without you, our fantastic parents and players who turn out in all weathers.

Falcons Cafe
Food and drink

Did you know we have a fantastic new cafe on site at Newsham Road pitches serving hot drinks and food? Run entirely by volunteers we keep players warm on cold mornings with bacon rolls and hot chocolate. Mums, Dads, Grandparents... in fact supporters of all kinds can purchase hot food, snacks and drinks. If you can help by serving for a couple of hours on a Saturday or Sunday let the staff know in the Falcons Cabin.

We hold relevant hygiene licences and you'll get shown the ropes.

Child Welfare

 Child Welfare Officers Statement - from Geoff Nash

As Thirsk Falcons Child Welfare Officer (CWO) I take the job very seriously indeed. Our club has a legal responsibility to provide a duty of care. This is the duty to make sure all reasonable steps are taken to ensure your children whilst in our charge are safe. This duty of care is extended by a moral responsibility to develop a culture in which your children can take part in football in a safe and enjoyable environment. I have two main principles which are very important and are as follows:

The site should contain all you need to know about the mighty Falcons.

Established for over 30 years we are one of the largest junior football clubs in the area. We are an FA charter standard club and are overseen by North Riding FA.
