Wendover Junior Football Club – Grassroots Football in Wendover
After 2 seasons disrupted by Covid, WJFC are eagerly planning for the future. With over 350 children, from the youngest Wendover Cubs at 3 years old, to the seasoned footballers in the U15 teams, we’re proud and excited to be a key part of the local community here in Wendover.
With many changes and improvements planned, a key aim is to secure Charter Standard status – the benchmark for well-run clubs in England. With a team of over 60 hardworking and dedicated coaches, we now have FA qualified coaches at each age group.
The biggest development on the playing side is the construction of a 3G Astroturf pitch on the John Colet school site. WJFC have been involved from the start with the project, and as such are now a Partner Club along with Aston Clinton. This provides us priority access to the facilities and a discounted hire rate that will benefit the Club finances in the long term.
The new facility will provide great opportunities for our young footballers, allowing them to train and play right through the season, whatever the weather. This will give them the best chance of learning new skills and enjoying their football.
Of course, our partnership with the school is important as we look to safeguard the future of the club. With the redevelopment of RAF Halton and the uncertainty around the facilities there, we, like the Senior Football Club, needed to secure both grass pitches for matches and suitable training facilities for the long term. This relationship will certainly do that, and allow the club to grow and develop.
As a community club, our doors are always open and we’re looking to grow our numbers – evidenced by the recent introduction of a dedicated girls section which started successfully last season and will grow this coming year. Our aim for 2021/22 is to run training and develop 3 girls teams (school years: 3&4, 5&6, 7&8). Training will be on Tuesday evenings between 6:00-7:30pm starting 7 September.
