Established in 1996, Pucklechurch Sports YFC is a FA Charter Standard Club that currently runs four teams, under 10s, 13s, 14s and 15s. They play in the Hanham Minor League and the Avon Youth League. This year, (2009/10 Season), we have more than 60 players signed up to play.
The Club is committed to providing a safe and friendly environment for young people to enjoy and play football. We strive to create an identity of which they can be proud, whether that is by providing kit, facilities or equipment. We operate an equal opportunities policy and we make all possible effort to keep costs to individual players down so that participation and inclusion is not down to financial circumstance.
Each team trains at least once per week throughout the year and between September and March/April they play weekly competitive matches against other local teams. A “Man of the Match Trophy” is awarded to an individual player, per team per week, irrespective of whether the team has won or lost – our ethos is based on the power of positive encouragement!! Players develop a deep sense of commitment to the club, playing week in, week out, whatever the weather. Training on dark winter evenings keeps them out of mischief and gives them a sense of purpose!
