Formby Junior Sports Club Frank Report & News from Presentation
All games observed one minute’s silence before matches on Remembrance Sunday.
It was another busy weekend for Formby Junior Sports Club’s four hundred and forty members. There was a full range of matches and coaching sessions in the Inter Club Section and nearly thirty of FJSC’s Representative teams also played fixtures home or away as well.
In addition to this action packed football bonanza FJSC also organised a Presentation Event held at Formby Cricket Club to release news of many mouth-watering events planned to celebrate the club’s 60th Year in 2019.
A large number of parents and children attended the event to hear FJSC’s plans for next year and also the club’s vision for the future. The opportunity was not lost to ask parents what they would like to see and also invited parents to say how they may be able to assist the club in various ways in the future as well. FJSC was extremely pleased with the input and will give consideration to all suggestions.
A list of some of the exciting events planned for 2019, which will commence from FJSC’s 60th birthday on 7th January, were announced. This included: -
1 A Memorabilia Day at the Clubhouse.
2 Generation Game
3 Switch It Up Tournament
4 24 hour Marathon Match
5 Valencia Trip
6 Summer Dinner Dance
7 Kids Pool Tournament
8 Any many more……
There will be something for everyone.
Information about these events will follow in due course.
This is all in addition to all the usual “Football for Everyone” that FJSC will be organising throughout next year as well.
To get everyone in the mood please see the club’s video clip on social media. There will be many faces you will recognise and perhaps even your own, as the video flashes through six decades of football at FJSC.

Katie Leech gave FJSC Jets the lead against Churchtown. The dazzling sun in the first half made it difficult for the Jets defenders to see and from two high balls Churchtown capitalised and scored twice to lead 2-1 at half time. The Jets pressed for much of the second half. Simone Jones came very close to equalising but Churchtown managed to hold out.
