Oldham Athletic Community Trust would like to welcome Park Chadderton Juniors U8s to today, who are the JD Williams Team Of The Week for this afternoon’s fixture against Peterborough United.
Here is a little more information about the club:
Chadderton FC Juniors is a Community Amateur Sports Club that provides structured coaching and organised football to children and young people in Chadderton and the surrounding communities and offers a seamless route from junior to semi-professional football.
The club currently comprises a soccer school for ages 4-year-old upward and teams ranging from U7s to U16s and on to Youth and semi-professional football at our exit club, Chadderton F.C.
We have recently been awarded the highly prestigious FA Charter Standard Community Club status in recognition of our recent achievements.
The club has an excellent reputation within junior football circles and was voted Manchester FA’s Charter Standard Development Club of the year for 2009/10.
We currently have some 250 registered players across all age groups plus the attendees at the soccer school. Each team is managed and coached by at least two adults holding FA accredited coaching qualifications and CRB checked.
The Club was formed from humble beginnings in 1992 with one team following the breakup of Collyhurst & Moston JFC and a merger with Chadderton Strikers. The Club has grown in size and extended the range of age groups from U7 to U16 and has on occasion provided football at U17 and U18. Our teams play in various mini-soccer and 11-a-side leagues in & around the borough
The U8’s blacks have now been together for 18 months and play their games on Saturday in the east manchester junior football league. The players ages range from 7-8, they had a successful season last year which culminated in a cup final appearance.
