Club partner with The FA & PayPal to produce a video about The FA Matchday App

We were invited by The FA and PayPal to take part in a video shoot as a case study for The FA’s Matchday app. Back in August we spent the afternoon filming an interview and a training session with our U9 boys group and U12 Blaze Girls to promote our use of the app within the club.

A massive thank you to all 230 kids parents who have got on board and are using the app this season to help manage player availability, pay your fees and ultimately help our coaches spend less time on admin and more time on coaching the children.

As a result of all 17 teams hitting their target of payments through the app, we managed to get over £4200 of free Nike equipment for the club. So new cones, new match balls and new bibs.

Here is the video of our club secretary Simon Hume talking about the benefits that the app has brought to the club.

Generous Donation to our Defibrillator Appeal

As you may be aware, the club has been raising money to purchase two defibrillators for us use at our home games in the village, at Dovehouse, and just outside the village at our HRI location.

Through some incredible donations from parents, members of the community and local businesses we were gaining on our first target of £850 to purchase the first one.

We were then contacted by Shoezone, who have a Charitable Trust and wanted to donate enough money to buy a defibrillator out right. So in a little over 2 weeks of fund raising, we’ve almost raised enough money to buy both.

Thanks to Jon Fearn at Shoezone for putting our case forward.

At the time of writing we are £188 shy of our overall target. A massive achievement, so thank you once again from everyone at the club to put as in this position so quickly!

Once this round of fund raising is completed, we’ll turn our attention to hopefully purchasing a lockable box to be placed at Dovehouse, for one of the defibrillators, which means the whole community will have access to be able to use it as well.

If you’d like to make a donation to our appeal, you can do so here:

U11’s Start Tournament Season with Silverware at Hednesford!

U11’s lift the trophy at Hednesford

Sunday 5th May saw the start of tournament season for the U11’s, with a team consisting of 5 Falcons and 5 Warriors heading to Hednesford Town’s ground near Cannock to compete in both U11 and U12 tournaments.

Playing at Keyes Park, a 6000 capacity stadium used by their semi-pro first team (who featured in the FA Cup on the BBC a couple of years ago), the boys got to experience what playing in a “proper” stadium felt like – an experience well worth the early start.

As both our U11 teams train together, they lads quickly gelled and produced some great displays of strong defending, good ball work and quick attacks to beat both Hendesford teams and lift the U11 trophy.

The U12 tournament that followed gave them great experience, playing up a year against more physical, powerful players where the boys competed really well and did themselves proud.

A fabulous day out for the start of what will hopefully be a successful tournament season for the boys!

Girls Football Growing at Wellesbourne

This season has seen our Girls training sessions growing in size to the point where we are able to start entering teams for the 2019/20 football season in the Warwickshire Girls leagues.

This is huge for the club and something we’d like to keep growing as well.

We currently train on a Thursday evening in Wellesbourne at the Sports & Community Centre between 6 and 7pm in a mixed session of younger and older girls.

We’d probably encourage the really little ones (at the moment) to join our mixed Minis sessions on a Saturday morning, but from girls in Year 3 and above Thursday night is probably a good time to come and have a go.

If you are interested in bringing your child along, we offer 2 free taster sessions to see if it’s for them, then after that is a fee of £20 per term (or £60 for the whole season).

We’d welcome girls from all around the local area to come and join, regardless of ability, we want the girls to come and have some fun, make new friends and enjoy football!

For further information contact us on and we hope to see some of you soon!

Please share this post on your various parent Facebook groups, and other social media too.

2018/19 Player Registration is Now Open

Player registrations for 2018/19 are now open and we are doing it slightly differently this year.

Rather than filling out a paper form for the club, you can now do this online and pay your fees all at the same time.

If your child is going to be playing for a league registered team in Under 8’s up to Under 17’s then you will be required to pay £100 for the season. If your child is joining Minis, training for the girls or just training with an age group (and not playing league fixtures) then a reduced fee of £60 applies.

Please fill in your registration form and make sure you make payment here. If you have any questions, please contact your age group coach BEFORE registration and making payment.

Please note that the league registration form will still be required for Under 8’s to under 17’s, with the two passport photographs.
