Welcome to the NEW Forest Row Junior Football Club Website
Forest Row JFC is a thriving voluntary run organisation situated at a beautiful village location on Ashdown Forest, sharing facilities with the Forest Row Cricket Club, Forest Row Tennis Club and the Forest Row Senior Football Club. Our immediate neighbour is the Royal Ashdown Forest Golf Club.
The Club’s primary objective is to provide a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment for our youngsters to enjoy playing football. We are affiliated to The Sussex F.A. and all of our volunteers that manage and coach each age group are trained and vetted to F.A. guidelines. Parents are encouraged to get involved wherever possible and the club provides an excellent ‘social’ element, including a club bar for social events, which is also available for private hire.
Currently we have 4 age groups playing in the Crowborough & District Junior Football League, the U8’s, U9’s, U10’s and U11’s. The Mini-Soccer age groups (up to and including U10’s) utilise our purposely developed new grounds at Medway Park in the centre of the village. Traditionally, each year the U11 age group competes in a wonderful International Tournament at Milly la Foret (our twinned town in France).
The U12’s, U13’s, U14’s and U15’s compete well in the Horsham & District Youth Football League, the U11’s, U12’s & U13’s utilise the Junior Pitch at the Memorial Grounds, and the U14’s & U15’s utilise the Senior Pitch. Two age groups competed in an International Tournament this year in Copenhagen. During school terms in the football season we train mid-week evenings at the East Grinstead Sports Club 3G pitch.
The U19’s also utilise the Senior Pitch at the Memorial Grounds and compete in the Mid Sussex Youth & Minor Football League.
