Football at Saint James

In keeping with Saint James’ vision of providing football with a strong Christian ethos, Saint James Football Club provides football matches, training and social activities for children.

A fun, friendly and safe environment for children to enjoy the fantastic game of football and to develop their skills.

Saint James Football Club: How is it organised and who is it for?

Saint James Football Club takes place on most Saturdays from September to May. We take part in the Chiltern Church Junior Football League, regulated by the FA. It consists of various church teams in the locality.

We are now recruiting for our new U6 team.

Training takes place each Saturday mornings (approx. 10.00 -11.30) and the subscription is just £30 for the first year (September – April).

Please complete and return the attached form together with a cheque. (made payable to St James PCC)

This is an initial application and you will need to complete an online form once confirmation of your child’s place has been received.

We provide football for children from school year 1 upwards. Each team is in school year age groups:

  • U6 (yrs 1) non-competitive, but have training and fun football activities
  • U7-U10 (Yr.2-Yr5) play 7-a-side league football
  • U11-U15 (Yr 6+) play 11-a-side league football

Each new team is managed and/or coached by a member of Saint James Church and parents are also encouraged to get involved in their child’s team – on the pitch coaching, on the sideline, or in an administrative role.

All coaches are DBS checked and some have the Level 1 FA coaching qualification. The team of appropriate 30 coaches are committed to providing fun and competitive football whatever the weather!

The Club is run by a committee and acts in keeping with the club constitution.

The Parish Safeguarding Policy & Procedures can be viewed HERE.

Each team has a maximum number of players, which enables each child to have a good amount of football play each week. Players will not generally be taken on after 31 January as they cannot join the league after this date (FA regulations). Girls are welcome until U10 (Yr 5) after which age FA regulations do not permit mixed teams.

If a team is full, a waiting list is held and priority is given to Saint James Church children. St James FC is a non-profit making and self funding club. Subscriptions are due before the season commences. This covers weekly football, a full kit and all club activities and tournaments (2013/14 new players subs are £85, existing members £75).
