Welcome to Prees Junior Football Club
Our Football Club is based in Prees, near Whitchurch in North Shropshire.
We are an FA Charter Standard Community Club and have been Runners Up in this category for the past three years in the Shropshire FA Football Awards. We have a strong committee who ensure that our club is run at a high standard and are always improving facilities and football for the club’s future.
All our mangers and coaches are DBS checked and have up to date qualifications including Safeguarding and First Aid. Most have completed their Level 1 Coaching Badges and some are working towards Level 2 Coaching Badges. Our club provides in-house training for managers, coaches, parents and our children including Safeguarding, First Aid and Defibrillator and IT Cyber Security.
We have 10 boys Teams from u8s up to u16s. We have had a lot of success with moving boys from our club to Academies, including Shrewsbury Town, Manchester City and Manchester United. Some of our boys also play in the MJPL League and are in Shadow Squads for Shrewsbury Town and Stoke.
We also have 4 girls Teams from u8s up to u14s. We are the fastest growing girls section in North Shropshire. Our entire girls section is sponsored by IEC Solutions. We are also a Sister Club affiliated with Manchester City Ladies.
We also have a Creche for children age 4 and up which is facilitated by Johnnie Hughes Coaching. Johnnie’s remit is to make training fun whilst teaching the children football skills. New teams for our club will come through the Creche each year.
We hold Goalkeeper Sessions once a week with Dave Bennett. Dave gives our Keepers confidence and works on their skills to ensure that we have some of the best Keepers in ‘Net’.
We also have regular Girls Soccer Schools with England and Manchester City Ladies Mid-fielder, Jill Scott. Jill has been to Prees twice so far and she is returning in May for her third visit. These have been enjoyable days for not only our girls, but other girls playing football.
We have recently held a mini-referees course for 12 young adults within our club and this will ensure that we are self-sufficient in the future for referees for our home matches We also encourage all of our young adults to become involved in conversion referees courses and Level 1 Coaching badges.
We hold a very successful Boys Tournament each summer which attracts teams not only all over the Northwest and Midlands. We also hold a Girls Charity Tournament each year, where all proceeds are given to local charities and causes.
Our outstanding playing fields include a floodlit full size grass pitch, an Intermediate grass pitch and a 9 v 9 grass pitch. We also have a 7 v 7 enclosed 3G Astroturf pitch.
We are also one of the only Football Clubs in Shropshire to have a Clubhouse with changing rooms, toilets, function room and bar and a fabulous balcony overlooking the pitches. We are known throughout the Shropshire Football Community for having Gary’s famous ‘Pizza and Chips’ after our home matches.
Prees Junior Football Club prides intself on our Club values including Respect, Teamwork, Integrity and Charity. We are not just an ordinary Football Club. We are a family friendly, inclusive Club providing a safe environment where lifelong friendships can be made through Sport.
