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.
All football training at the 3G pitches in Wellesbourne and Stratford-upon-Avon is cancelled for this Thursday, Friday and for Saturday Minis due to the adverse weather conditions.
This Sunday we were the visitors to Khalsa at the Newbold Common fields in Leamington. Refreshingly the pitches were cut, white lines looking sharp and a surface unlike I have ever seen before at this venue. So all to play for and conditions that should suit our normal passing game.
Khalsa are a different proposition altogether this season and good to see Pal, Khalsa’s manager with a group of lads that will test every team in the league this season.
In a 1st half dominated by WWFC we take a 2 nil lead through goals from Rowan and Joel, only to be pegged back just before half time after the boys failed to carry out one of the basic rules in football – play to the refs whistle. After the ball had clearly crossed the touch line (according to most) the boys stopped playing and the only one who didn’t was the Khalsa striker who turned back into the pitch and slotted home coolly. With both linesman and referee unsighted the goal stood and a lesson to be learned for the future. Fortunately we went straight down the other end and were incredibly lucky to regain our 2 goal advantage when a deep cross into the box was headed into his own net by the luckless Khalsa defender. HT 3-1
A quick start to the 2nd half saw us take a 4-1 lead with Joel’s 2nd clinical finish of the game and from here on we should have seen the game out comfortably. However Khalsa were not on the same page and showed what a hugely improved team they are by fighting their way back into the game and probably controlling a large part of the final 1/3 of the game. They created several chances of their own and scored arguably the best goal of the game to bring the score back to 4-2.
The game eventually finished 4-2 which was overall a fair reflection of the game, however had we have been more clinical in the 1st half the game would have been out of site by half time. Credit must go to Khalsa who were determined to push us all the way and that they did amicably.
Lots of things to work on from a performance perspective, but another 3 points in the bag and that takes us to 7 games played and maximum points to date.
Just a reminder to parents that there will no Mini’s training on Saturday 21st October due to half term and limited coach availability.
We will be back on Saturday 28th October as normal.
The U16 squad for the game against Radford Semele will be as follows;
We will be kicking off at 2pm (arrival at 1.30pm for warm up).
Radford now play at Newbold Comyn in Leamington Spa.

Well, it’s been a long time coming, but finally we have re-launched our website with a completely new look and feel and it even works on mobile!
The site has far more depth and information than ever before and we hope it’ll be a great resource for parents and visiting teams.
A big thank you to Milk Bar Studios, one of our club sponsors, who have been working hard over the summer getting this ready for us. They were also behind the new parent packs that Under 8’s – Under 16’s received earlier in the summer and that all Minis will receive in the next week or so.
Minis is back!
It’s been a long break over the summer months, but finally, Minis football is returning to Wellesbourne in September. Saturday September 9th to be exact.
For the first time, we will now be training on the brand new 3G pitch in the village, at the Sports & Community Centre, ending our long run at Wellesbourne School.
Training will be from 9am to 10am as normal, as we’ll be dividing the pitches into 3 areas. Two teams will train on the 3G and one will train on the grass alongside the 3G. Each week, we’ll rotate this around so everyone has a turn on both grass and astro turf.
If you’ve never come before, then this is a great opportunity to get your child involved in football with fun games and activities every Saturday morning.
Minis is designed for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils, both boys and girls of all abilities.
Sessions are £2 each, but this year we’ll be taking block payments per term of £20 (£60 for the season). Full details on how to pay can be found on our fee information sheet.
