Welcome to Thirsk Falcons FC is a volunteer led, grassroots football club, established for several decades in Thirsk.
The senior team has been in operation since 1948 and the junior section set up in 1984. It is one of the largest sports clubs in the area and you would be hard pushed to find someone in Thirsk who has not had some involvement in the club from playing, volunteering, watching grandkids or supporting sons and daughters in their footballing journey.The club has seen rapid growth and is committed to providing high quality football in a community context.
We currently operate with 21 teams (350 players) ranging from 3 years to 50 years upwards! Thirsk Falcons encompasses the breadth of junior and senior football from Fledglings (3yrs), a girls team and all age groups up to u18 with a clear pathway to a strong senior section playing high quality men’s football including senior development, senior 1st, veterans and a womens team. The club is exploring opportunities for an over 50’s walking football team and a disability team.
The ethos is to encourage football for all - to develop and support our young footballers with a transition to play competitively for youth and seniors (u12s and above) in line with the FA. The Club holds the much coveted FA Community Charter Club status (the highest FA status) and each team has at least one FA Level 1 qualified coach. All coaches and club officials are DBS checked with child/adult welfare at the heart of everything we do.Thirsk Falcons is an international partner with Celtic FC and partners with North Yorkshire Soccer Academy to deliver fledglings fun football sessions (3-6 years).
We are affiliated to North Riding FA with teams represented in the Teesside Junior Football Alliance, Hambleton, York Girls, Harrogate and North Riding Leagues.The club has a vision to achieve a minimum of L6 status; playing National League North at a senior level with its own attendant facilities. The first step to achieving this is the impending move to Sowerby Gateway where we will utilise a full size 4g pitch and 7 mini soccer pitches with spectator facilities, clubhouse and changing rooms. Junior teams currrently play at Thirsk Athletics Club (TAC - Newsham Road) Senior 1st team play at The Flatts (behind Thirsk Leisure Centre) and u16s, u17s combination and Senior Development team play at Thirsk School.To get involved or find key contacts please contact the club via the facebook page or https://www.thirskfalcons.org.uk/contacts
