Train With Us
With players of all ages and experience levels, all you really need to come play is some studded boots, a positive attitude and a drive to improve. First and foremost, we are a TEAM which means we have a friendly environment where we all have fun and enjoy the sport we love and create a positive team mentality which helps us improve on the field. So, whether you’ve never played before, have a little experience or are a seasoned pro, we are always looking for new players and coaches to help our team to the next level.
National Division Football
As members of the BAFA National League Division 2 South West Conference, this year we are going up against experienced teams and are always looking to be competitive, with a total of 10 games, 5 of those being away trips to the likes of Newquay, Torquay and Bristol there is plenty of opportunities to play throughout the summer, with 2 wins already in our debut season we are looking to grow as a team even in preparation for next season.
We are more than just a team, we are a family. We believe the time off the field is as valuable as time on the field, be that training twice a week, organising social events where we enjoy meals, bowling nights and end of season awards. We also believe as a team we have a responsibility to the local community that has supported us in our journey so far, giving back to those that have supported us in ways such as fund raising, local bag packing and organised charity events
