We are very happy to confirm after the lifting of lockdown #2 in England and the re-introduction of tier systems, grassroots football can re-start from today! Please find details of the revised guidelines from the FA here. Revised guidelines based around the Tier alert levels for your area can also be found here.
The FA and associated leagues have been working hard to re-schedule matches and some of our teams will begin playing again from this coming weekend. Our club has carried out detailed risk assessments and all coaches and committee members have access to all these documents which they will be very happy to provide in full, upon request. However, we would like to highlight the main measures in place at Grayshott Youth Football Club for both training sessions and matches here.
All measures put in place follow guidelines we have been given and primarily are to protect all players, coaches, parents & guardians, members, spectators and visitors to keep them as safe as possible. We kindly ask for everyone’s support in helping us all adhere to these measures which will also help to ensure football can continue for as long as possible. Other clubs may have slightly different measures in place specific to their venue and we ask that these are also respectfully followed.
Thank you for your continued support and let’s hope football can continue for the rest of the season with minimal further disruption!
We are currently seeking a passionate and enthusiastic new Chair for our lovely football club and would love to hear from anyone in the local community who might be interested in complementing our great team of volunteers.
We are looking for someone – or a couple of people to Chair and Vice-Chair – to provide leadership and direction but also to bring new ideas and opportunities as the club strives in its efforts to provide enjoyment and development opportunities for the children. Many on the committee have been involved for several years now, so we are keen to engage support for the next generation of players in Grayshott Youth Football Club and for them to become part of it’s future.
We do hope there is someone out there willing and able to join us soon! For more details please contact email@example.com. Thank you!
People living in the Grayshott area are set to benefit from fresh investment into local football facilities as Grayshott Youth Football Club have been awarded a grant from the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation, to upgrade two sets of goal posts.
The Football Foundation is the UK’s largest sports charity and exists to improve the experience of playing football for everyone, by championing fair access to quality facilities.
Grassroots football matches and training cannot take place at the moment due to the COVID-19 outbreak and will only restart when it is safe to do so following government advice but this funding is great news for local football in the meantime.
Grayshott Football Club has worked with the Football Foundation and the Hampshire FA to secure a grant of £2,160 towards this project, which will hugely benefit many children across several age groups both now and in the future, providing significant improvement to our facilities.
Robert Sullivan, Interim Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said: “We know the huge benefits playing regular football can have on individuals’ physical and mental well-being. That’s why we’re committed to transforming the face of grassroots football facilities in this country. It’s therefore very welcome news to hear that this funding will support Grayshott Football Club’s efforts of providing grassroots football in the local community.
“Working with our partners – the Premier League, The FA, government and Sport England – we will be investing in over £1bn worth of local facilities across the country over the next decade. We believe we can transform lives and strengthen communities by unlocking the power of pitches and this is another project that brings us closer to that ultimate goal.”
A huge well done to all our new U7’s and their coach last weekend who played their first ever match against Bourne Blade Hawks. We love the drawing from one of our player’s (below) with their own personal insight of the match, it looks excellent fun! We are currently looking for more players to join the team so if you are interested please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck for the rest of the season Phoenix!
It was great to see so many children having so much fun at our free taster session last Saturday and we are pleased to offer another one this coming Saturday on 26th September. This is a great introduction to football for all girls and boys between 4-6 years, with the emphasis on enjoyment and having fun! If you are interested, just turn up on the day at Grayshott Recreation ground between 11am and 12pm. Hope to see you there!
Huge congratulations to the coaches and players of our under U14’s Sparks team who finally got to play last season’s North East Hants Youth League cup final on Saturday 12th September against Hart Tigers and won a close game 3-2. Bring on season 2020/ 2021!
We are gearing up for the long anticipated start to the season and looking for some generous local companies willing to sponsor our teams this season. Sponsorship is a vital and hugely beneficial contribution to the running of our club and helps fund team kits and equipment for the children. We have a few teams in need of a sponsor this season along too with our All Stars sessions, which provide our youngest budding footballers a fun and friendly introduction to the beautiful game! Our teams play in the North East Hants and Surrey leagues. If anyone is interested or can help in any way, we would be very grateful and would love to hear from you! THANK YOU!
We’d love to hear from all boys and girls wishing to play football next season 2020/2021. We currently have availability in a few squads, particularly U10’s and U15’s. If interested, please contact us by email email@example.com and we can provide more details. Look forward to hearing from you!
Congratulations to our U14’s Sparks who earned their place in the NEHYL Senior Cup Final to be held in May after a 3-1 win over Bagshot Lea Titans. Congratulations as well to our U14’s Flames who won 2-0 against Guildford City in the Surrey Premier League semi-final and will play in the final for the fifth year running.
Grayshott Youth Football Club under 14’s Sparks were on winning form on Saturday playing against Camberley with a final score of 6 – 0. A frosty but beautiful morning too after all the rain and wind recently.
