Stapleton Football Club
Bristol Premier Combination
Champions Bristol and District League 2016-17
Adrian Carr and Rob Carty have been running teams for the Stapleton Junior Section for many years. Their philosophy is that youngsters learn best in a fun, supportive and stress free environment. Regardless of their ability everyone gets a game and plenty of encouragement is given. However, the coaches can't do everything, so parents or guardians are encouraged to get involved in training, match day preparations and our regular social or fundraising events.
Of course, none of the above comes without a financial cost. The largest expenses we have to cover are pitch fees, goalposts and nets (different sizes for different age groups) training courses and playing kit. We also pay annual fees to Gloucestershire Football Association and the Hanham Minor League. We have a signing on fee and then a regular monthly playing fee throughout the season. We try and keep these as reasonable as possible so children aren't put off joining us because of cost.
We are very pleased that UWE Houses has found a way of supporting our junior teams by sponsoring the u9's playing strip. This is by far the most expensive (and recurring) cost to the club. Many thanks to you.
