Interested in Joining?
If you're interested in joining, please read the information below, complete the online Registration Form and come along to the next suitable training session.
If you will be coming to an evening session (see below), please email us first at so we know to expect you.
No Commitment Trial!
We offer a four week trial period for new members by the end of which you can decide whether to become a fully paid-up member. We appreciate it’s not always easy to commit to a four week period in one go, particularly for younger children, and so we give you up to six weeks to take the four trial sessions in.
You are very welcome to come along any Saturday (or evening - see below) for the trial sessions or just to watch.
When to Come
* Girls U10 & U12 squads will train with all the Girls from 9:00-10:00 and then for a further 30 minutes from 10:00-10:30
** U7 training will most commonly take place from 9:00-10:30 on Saturday mornings at Meades Park. Matches are also scheduled for the same day, so there will either be a match or training session each Saturday (kick-off times vary). There will be the odd occasion where training will need to be at a different time to accommodate older age group fixture schedules at the club. The parent group will be notified by the coaching group when this is the case. Please contact the club if a new joiner and not in contact with the coaching team.
*** U8-U10 Saturday teams train and play their matches in the Saturday league of the SSYL at the Meades Park main ground. There will either be a match or training each Saturday. Training and match times vary from week to week according to the fixture schedules across these age-groups. Please refer to your coaching group for details. For any new joiners please contact the club for us to put you in touch with the relevant coaches to confirm team/training availability.
What to Bring
For any training session, please ensure that your son/daughter brings shin pads (otherwise he/she will not be able to take part), football boots and a drink of water and he/she wears clothing suitable for training in and which is appropriate to the weather.
If you don't have shin pads and/or boots, we usually are able to loan you some.
When You Arrive
If your son/daughter would like to take part in a Saturday session, please pop into the Clubhouse a little before 10.15am and someone will introduce you to the relevant managers and/or coaches. There is no fee for the trial sessions, but we will ask you to complete the Registration form so that your son/daughter is covered under our insurance policy. Please complete this before you come along to the first trial session.
For your second and subsequent trial sessions, please sign in at the Clubhouse before going to find your team and manager.
For weekday evening sessions, please email us first at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know to expect you.
If it has been exceptionally rainy or cold, you might want to check the website before you leave home so you don't have a wasted journey. It is sometimes necessary to cancel training on a Saturday morning at short notice, due to waterlogged or frozen pitches, and we endeavour to put a notice on the website to this effect as early as possible.
