Join Our Club

The FA's 'Join Our Club' programme replaces the old School-Club Links initiative. Join Our Club is aimed at supporting the transition of aspiring footballers into a grassroots football club environment. The relationship between schools and clubs can take many forms, but can be pivotal in the recruitment of players for grassroots clubs and providing an opportunity for players to ‘get into football’.

Shropshire FA are keen to work with any clubs wishing to formulate links with local schools or other organisations to extend their current provision and recruit new players into existing teams.

The relationship bewteen clubs and schools can take many forms, with benefits available to both sides of the partnership. For clubs, it is vital to have schools or organisations where playing opportunities can be promoted, as well as school sites often hosting club fixtures. For schools, there is the opportunity to increase football provision with school time, and access to football specific support.

If you are interested in becoming a part of the FA Join Our Club programme, please contact Shropshire FA Football Development Officer, Andy Baker, andy.baker@shropshirefa.com or 01743 362769.
