A brief history of the club

 Celebrating 25 years of Gomersal Boys FC

A Silver Jubilee is an important celebration in anybodys life and we are delighted that the start of the next football season marks 25 years of football and enjoyment for Gomersal Boys.

 Gomersal Boys JFC was founded by Mr J Dawson and Mr D Rigg back in 1977 with just the one team of U12s.The team were entered in the Spen Valley and District Sunday Football League and played all their home games in Batley.

The 1979/80 season saw the under 14s win the League Cup. By then the club had three age groups 13s, 14s and 15s and were then allocated a home ground on Nibshaw lane Gomersal.

We have continued to survive and flourish for 25 years and now have around 220 boys and girls playing in ten age groups, from under 7s through to under 16s.

 This year we hope to attain the FA charter standard for the club. The programme is supported by The England Team sponsor Nationwide and was launched in February 2001, with the aim of setting standards of coaching, development, administration, first aid and child protection for football clubs.

Regards

Mick Binks (Secretary)

 

 

 

  A Message from the Chairman

 Welcome to the first edition of our newsletter. I believe it is important to keep everybody in touch with what is happening in the football club in general and across each of the age groups and teams.

A lot of people dont realise how big the Gomersal Boys club really is and many first timers at our annual presentation night at the Frontier Club are taken aback at the number of players and parents crammed into the venue. When the England V Italy U21 took place at Bradford City there were 415 in attendance from Gomersal Boys.

I am pleased to say that the membership and enthusiasm amongst the very junior teams is particularly encouraging and bodes extremely well for the future of our club.

The newsletter tells you about our presentation night, annual 5-a-side tournament and our initiatives to keep the club progressing and developing such as our entry for the FA Charter Standard. 

 Finally it is important to remind you all that the club runs on the generosity and support of all the parents involved with the boys. The committee and team managers put in a lot of their own time and effort on your behalf. It would be nice if everyone played a part where possible and that is why we have added a help wanted column.

 This club needs to keep developing and securing our own football ground and facilities would be a major boost. There must be a wealth of skills and experience amongst our parents and we simply ask that you come forward if you can help in any way.
