Crosfields Junior Football Club is an FA Charter Standard Community Club(the highest standard a club can attain). We were the first Club in Warrington within the jurisdiction of the Liverpool FA to receive this award in January 2011 having been a Charter Standard Development Club since 2001.  We continue to go from strength to strength as a club, developing our 450+ players, who play football for fun and enjoyment, measuring success, not by matches won or trophies gained, but by our size and the few children who leave our club, and most importantly by the development of all players

We are an inclusive club and continue to develop our disability football section.  We have a thriving and growing girls section for U5s to U16s.  Our Girls mini-soccer tournament last summer was a huge success.  We have 70 U5/6 players who spend an hour developing FUNdamental football skills in a friendly, enjoyable, supportive environment.  We have 14 mixed mini-soccer teams and 10 11-a-side boy’s teams including two U18 teams.  We are delighted that next season our U11s will play 9v9.  We encourage older players to act as Junior Coaches or mini-soccer referees.

We pride ourselves on developing all players and therefore have very high coach-player ratios, typically 1:5 at mini-soccer and 1:8 at 11-a-side.  Everyone involved in our club is a volunteer and all who work with children are CRB checked.  We have over 50 Level 1coaches, including 10 females.  We are proud that over 10 coaches have completed Youth Award Module 1.  This year two more coaches have completed Level 2, two have completed Module 2 and one is working towards assessment for Module 3. Two coaches have completed the Mentoring Adults course.  Two coaches hold UEFA A licences.  We encourage (and fund) coaches to become FA Licensed Coaches and have developed the coaching community by holding regular Coach Development evenings, welcoming coaches from over a dozen CS Clubs.  All coaches are given a copy of our ‘ethos’ which has featured in ‘The Boot Room’ and as a case study on theFA.com.  The club has recently been featured in a BBC Radio Merseyside programme which highlighted our good practice as a grassroots junior football club.

Our annual soccer-parent meetings ensure that families are aware of our club ethos, and the behaviour we expect from everyone at training and match-days in line with the FA RESPECT agenda. Parent representatives monitor this, acting as a bridge between parents and coaches.  The few issues that our Compliance Committee have dealt with, U10 and U13 teams winning divisional Sporting Awards  and our U7s winning the overall league ‘Most Sporting’ trophy last year, demonstrate the success of this.

We continue to have strong partnerships with two local high schools to ensure that we have high quality training facilities and matchday pitches.  We worked with local primary schools to host a mini soccer tournament for youngsters.  We have a detailed 5-year development plan to ensure continued success and growth.  We carefully manage our finances to ensure all players and coaches have the kit and equipment they need.

Our Crosfields Tanzania project is developing links with communities in Tanzania in partnership with the Village Africa charity.  Coaches have done a charity skydive to raise funds to support the Football Academy set up out there.  One coach makes yearly visits to Milingano and Yamba, delivering kids’ football shirts, boots and trainers, to support football in the villages.  He has also delivered medical and school equipment and has helped to build schools in the villages. We are developing Pen-Pal links between our players and the children in Tanzania.

Crosfields JFC was founded in 1998 by parents who wanted ‘Football for all’.  This has been the drive of the club as it has grown to be one of the biggest and best in the North West.  Have a look at our website, or contact us for more information.
