You don’t have to be an experienced FA Level 1 or 2 coach as enthusiasm and reliability are just as important.

Junior Reds U15’s win Parkwood Rangers FC Festival of soccer
Junior reds entered two under 15 teams into the Parkwood Rangers FC tournament. The two teams were made up of players from U15 Valiants and U15 Warriors. The teams entered were called Junior Reds Whites and Junior Reds Arrows. Both teams progressed exceptionally well in the tournament, but were unfortunately drawn against against each other in the semi final stages of the competition. JR Arrows won the semi final after a penalty shoot out and progressed to the final where they met Kingfisher FC. The final was a close fought affair and finished 1-1 after extra time which meant another penalty shoot out for the boys. Again the boys were cool under pressure and scored all five penalties and our keeper saved two penalties also.
To see the full match report click on this link – full new report.
Congratulations boys for winning this tournament for the second year running.
If you are interested in playing (or you know someone who would be) please contact Geraint Jones (Manager) on 07846 593472.
JR Robins support the Kent FA Youth Council’s, ‘Swearing – Lets Tackle It’ Campaign
Over a year since the Kent FA’s ground breaking Youth Council proudly launched its award-winning SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It’ campaign, the organisation’s Youth Ambassadors continue to eradicate foul and abusive language in the game.
Working hard with partner leagues, the SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It message continues to travel around the county.
This weekend, Youth Ambassadors attended the Kent Girls and Ladies League finals to further emphasise the need to make football a positive and fun environment for everyone.
The event, which welcomed hundreds upon hundreds of female footballers of all age groups from across Kent, proved to be a perfect back drop for the Youth Ambassadors to engage clubs, coaches, referees and players.
Youth Ambassador Laurel Collins, who is leading the SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It project, was delighted with the reaction the campaign received.
Collins said, “We’ve been taking SWEARING – Let’s Tackle It all over the county to several league finals from the adult’s game to Kent’s girls and ladies league. The purpose of our campaign was to universally challenge the idea that certain language and behaviour is acceptable on the touch lines. The Kent FA Youth Council believes that foul and abusive language can have a huge impact on people; whether the referee, a player or a supporter.”
“Our message is clear in our campaign video, but going out into the Kent football community like we’ve been doing, helps us build relationships, speak to leagues and clubs and explain a little bit more and share best practice.”
“We’ve received some great feedback to the concept with a number of clubs and leagues being really proactive and supporting us. Whether that’s by including the campaign branding on their website, social media or within their ground, to approaching us to be part of their end of season occasions.”
“We’ll be looking to continue to embed this campaign, considering how we can add an educational element to further ensure Kent football remains ahead of the game in tackling this issue.”
