All New ALL STARS – FREE taster session!

Ahead of the launch of our new and exciting partnership with SCL, a leading provider in sport coaching, we are celebrating this weekend by offering a FREE taster session for all 4-6 year olds to join our ALL STARS. The session will be held on Saturday 12th November up at Grayshott Recreation Ground between 09.30 and 10.30, which will become the regular time slot each week moving forward (in term time). Clubhouse facilities will be available including toilets and our new tuck shop!

These sessions are a great way to introduce younger children to the game of football, with the emphasis on having lots of fun, whilst learning basic skills and building confidence.

For the taster session, please just come along on the day and kindly provide emergency contact details to the coaches. Moving forward, there will be an online booking system in place.

We do hope you can join and look forward to seeing you on Saturday for some fun and football!!

Play Safe

We’re backing Play Safe – 1st and 2nd October 2022.

Grayshott Youth Football Club is lending its full support to Play Safe – an ongoing national campaign led by The FA to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding in football.
Although it runs throughout the year, Play Safe really comes to the fore over football’s National Safeguarding Weekend, held this year on Saturday/Sunday 1st and 2nd October.

The main focus this year is on parents and carers, with two key messages to convey:
• Awareness of the vital safeguarding role parents/carers play in football; and
• Encouragement to take the short, new and free online safeguarding course that’s been created specifically for parents/carers.

Play Safe is being run in partnership with the NSPCC and has the full backing of the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship and we hope as many parents, carers and supporters of the game will join us in supporting this campaign and take part in the short safeguarding course found here:

Thank you!

Heading in football trial

New trial to remove deliberate heading of the ball for younger age group levels…

Flippin’ ‘eck: Burger-meisters net £2k fund-raiser

Three’s company?: Grayshott Youth Football Club Grill Stand raises almost £2k!

Multi-talented multi-tasking GYFC coaches, Committee Members and parents turned burger flippers for ‘one day only’ over the Jubilee weekend.

Together with the hard-working, ice-cream-and-soda sales-team, the combined GYFC parents and coaches group helped drive a ‘Whopper’ result, helping to raise much needed funds for the club.

This was off the back of a regally-inspired menu of Burger ‘Queen’, Hot ‘Corgi’ Dog, Veggie Royale, Ice ‘Queen’ and Royal Sodas!

Taking the heat at the flame grill were a rotation of sous-chefs, all under the masterful eye of head flipper, Ben. Feedback was unanimously positive – the burgers were delicious and the ‘dogs were doggone darn tasty, according to at least one enthusiastic taster.

Taste-test-tastic! Our first customer of the day samples the Hot ‘Corgi’ Dog.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the combined support of the Grayshott FC community and the very generous sponsorship of Ascot Racecourse, Surrey Oaks Wealth Management and Trusted PC Man. Huge thanks to all concerned.

Club AGM

Club AGM Wednesday 15th June at 7.30pm.

Grayshott Youth Football Club is run entirely by volunteers who give generously of their time to ensure all our members can enjoy playing football in the village. Recent times have been particularly challenging for our small club and we will need much support now and over the next seasons to ensure the club recovers and can grow and thrive once again.

Our club AGM will be held on Wednesday 15th June at 7:30pm at the Sports Pavilion up at the recreation ground. All are very welcome to come along, show your support for the club and learn more about how it’s run and how you can help support it. A little help from everyone will make a huge difference overall.

We’d also be immensely grateful to any companies or businesses who may be interested in becoming a sponsor of our club, either as a kit sponsor for one of the teams or in a more general capacity. A personal connection can make the world of difference in terms of securing much needed sponsorship for the club.

We hugely appreciate your support. If interested in attending the meeting, please email so we can plan numbers and look forward to welcoming you.

Thank you very much for your support.
