Originally formed in 1990, with just one team to our name, we are a self-funding junior football club from Gravesend, Kent and have now grown in size to currently have teams in all age groups ranging from Under 8’s through to a senior adult team. We are also proud to boast that since 2010/2011 season we have established a Pan-Disability Team as well, whilst in our 21st season we also welcome our first ever girls team to the club. Most of our teams play their football in the North Kent Junior Football League, but we also have teams playing in the Bexley and District Football League. Our girls team will play in the Kent Girls and Ladies Football League and our adult team compete in the North Kent Sunday League whilst our Pan-Disabilty team play in the Kent Adult Disability League.
The club is also a current holder of the FA Charter Standard Award, which we first achieved in 2009 and have continued to attain each year since.
The club is affiliated to the Kent County Football Association (KCFA) and therefore abides by all their rules and regulations.
As a club, we also adhere to the values of the FA Respect campaign and expect all players, club officials, parents and supporters to behave in a respectful manner to all match officials and visiting clubs at all times. Before a season commences all parents are required to sign to confirm that they will fully comply with the FA Code of Conduct.
The Managers and their assistants provide a safe and friendly environment where junior players of all abilities can enjoy developing their soccer skills and team play. All our managers possess, as a minimum requirement of the FA Charter Standard, the FA Level 1 Coaching qualification. Furthermore, all managers, coaches and other club officials are CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) checked independently by the Football Association as a further condition of the FA Charter Standard accreditation.
The club is also linked to our sister exchange club in Holland – VCW Wagenberg – and each Easter we either visit them, when the children stay with Dutch families, or, they come over to us for the bank holiday weekend, when our volunteer families will play hosts to their children. During these visits the children participate in various football related activities and days trips / excursions, whilst making friends with their Dutch counterparts, in what is always a fun-packed weekend.
