The Gaddesden Society Junior Football

Junior Football

The 2018-19 season is in full swing and our long and proud history of coaching football the right way continues - where every player is expected to play good passing football, try their best and above all demonstrate great sportsmanship. That said, we’re a competitive bunch and do like to win more than a bit, so recent victories over Berkhamsted Raiders by our U10 team and Harpenden Colts by our U11 were (very sportingly) most welcome … well done both teams!


A recruitment drive over summer has connected us with all the local primary and prep schools - as a result more than 30 new players have joined across the year groups from all the surrounding villages. We still have some spaces in under 9s (year group 4) and the odd one in other years so, if you know a local football mad youngster, please push them our way.


Engaging with our community is important to LG Junior Football Club so it is great to see so many local children joining but it’s not the only way we are growing our links with the village. Our volunteer parent coaches are our life blood giving their time for free and now we have three village teenagers helping coach on Saturday mornings - thanks specifically to Luke Cole and Oli Stevenson for their great support. Our clubhouse is another great example of village support, serving great coffee and bacon rolls on Saturday mornings (open to all from 9.30am to 10.30am) thanks to Freya and Scarlet’s enterprise - they are absolute stars!


We’re always interested in working closer with the village so if you have a skill that could help us or if there are other ways we can work better with the community, I’d love to hear from you.
