u16s Support Junior Section

The u16s have had a tough 18 months with limited football and more importantly their education severely impacted whilst undertaking their GCSEs. 

In finishing school one of the u16s teams gave up their free time to tidy up the Manor Compound for the Junior Section.

Team manager, Kevin Eynon said ‘To help the club and improve appearances for the community, a team building event was organised for one of the clubs under 16s teams to regenerate the manor playing fields compound. 

The team cleared the compound of undergrowth and painted three football cabins to a surprisingly high standard for novice painters / gardeners.

After much hard work, a BBQ and football match obviously followed. Well done to all the boys as we look forward to next season’s u18 league.’

#ParentsinSportWeek2020

5th October to the 11th October 2020 is Parents in Sports Week, this is a national campaign ran by the NSPCC. #parentsinsportsweek2020

As part of this campaign, the FA is asking every parent/carer with a child involved in football to take a few minutes to watch their parent/carer video below called ‘Let’s talk about keeping children safe in football’. It outlines what parents should expect from their club and how you can play your part in safeguarding your child.

More information can be found on the FA Website: FA Guidance for Parents and Carers

Coalpit Heath Football Club take safeguarding very seriously and ensure we follow FA guidelines. If you have any concerns you should contact the club’s dedicated Club Welfare Officer.
