Formby Junior Sports Club will be celebrating its 64th football season next month - Franks report
In just under one month’s time it will be the start of Formby Junior Sports Club’s 64th football season. Preparations have been underway since the end of last season with the summer months always a busy time for the club. The start date for the Inter Club Section will be Saturday 3rd September at Deansgate Lane Playing Fields for children from four years of age up to and including Year 8’s.
As always, since FJSC was founded in 1959,everyone is welcome to join the Inter Club Section regardless of ability. Parents can download a Formby Junior Sports Club membership form for 2022-2023 from the club website formbyjuniorsportsclub.co.uk in theclub document section or can contact Club Chairman Frank Rourke who will send you a form to complete and return and provide any necessary additional information.
For new members, if parents wish a two session ‘try and see if their child enjoys it time‘ before paying the annual club membership,this is quite in order. All we need initially is for the membership form to be completed so we can book a place for your child in the group.
CLEARING UP A COUPLE OF MISCONCEPTIONS
Inter Club football is open to all as soon as a child becomes four years of age. They do not have to be in Reception.
Just because FJSC does not, at present, have a Girls’ Section it does not mean that girls cannot play football at the club. Girls wishing to play football with the boys are very welcome to do so. In fact a number of the victorious Lionesses started off their football playing with the boys.
