The club have a thriving junior section with teams at U8s, U9s, U10s, U11s, 12s, 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s. We also offer the opportunity for U6s and U7s to learn the fundamentals of the game, as well as having an Ability Counts team based at St. Lawrence school.
The football club had a somewhat intense period of restructuring prior to the 2008/2009 season, due to the resignation of its former manager and the loss of players he brought to the club from out of town, where it was decided that the clubs base should be drawn back to more local roots. This has arguably had the effect of galvanising the club and putting it on a much more sustainable footing.
In November 2013 the club was presented with it's FA Charter Standard Development Award, which is testament to its continuing hard work and desire for self improvement for all age groups and abilities.
