First game for Uphill Junior Football Club

Saturday was the first ever game for the newly formed Uphill Junior Football Club, with their U12s playing Portishead Town.

With their home ground at Broadoak Academy, Uphill Juniors have been formed to provide a club for children living in the Bournville, Oldmixon and Uphill areas of W-S-M, who currently aren’t playing sport.

The aim of the club is to provide affordable football in a safe and supportive environment, where enjoyment and development is championed above everything else.

Though Uphill lost their first game, the day was a huge success, as the children came off the field smiling and really excited about playing their next game.

The club still has spaces, so if you have, or know of children who would like to give football a go and make new friends, please feel free to email the club or contact them via their Facebook page.

Ian Ridge, team manager and club Chairman, said: “Money and ability is no barrier to joining our football club, all children need is a smile on their face and a positive attitude.”

Training and games are at Broadoak Academy on Thursdays and Saturdays and the club is contactable via email to [email protected]
