The girls played well in their match and fortunately to avoid confusion there was no Poppy playing in the team.

Girls under 15 football team

Junior Reds are currently forming a new Girls team in the Under 15 age group.

Chairman, Clive Chivers, explained “In accordance with our Club Development plans we have very recently formed new girls teams in the Under 9 and 11 age groups. We now wish to further expand the girls section of the club by widening playing opportunities for girls in school years 9 and 10. Once complete this will become our oldest girls age group team and is an exciting step forward for the club. We do however still require additional players before matches with other teams can take place”.

If interested in joining this team, the girls meet at Bexleyheath Academy each Saturday morning at 10.00am. Further information can be obtained from Clive on 07504 264 157 or email

Jack Petchey award for October 2016

Kai has been awarded the Jack Petchey award for October 2016. Naden manager of the Under 12 Knights said “I’m nominating Kai for the Jack Petchey award for his outstanding attitude and sportsmanship. Junior Reds Knights U12 have struggled to find players willing to defend and in the rush for goals many players lose sight of their defensive duties. Kai is a role model for others within the team, because he consistently carries out his defensive duties and celebrates success of the team in a way which highlights his maturity.. Kai has an unwavering commitment to the team’s success. He has been the most reliable defensive player for the past two years. Strikers often get the recognition and its time we reward Kai for his outstanding contribution to our the U12 Knights. “

Well done Kai from all at Junior Reds

Supporting 45 teams is no easy task and it is pleasing Andy’s contribution to Junior Reds has been recognised across the wider London football world”.

Can you spot your Manager?

Many people often feel the Summer is the quite period of the year for a Football Club. This is not the case as much work is required in organising teams for the season ahead including the booking/ paying for football pitches; F.A Affiliation of teams; recruiting and registration of players; procuring kit etc. In fact this Summer nine teams have been formed from Under 7s to Under 21s and even a new Saturday Adult team.

Junior Reds hold a meeting in early September to update Managers on changes and to refresh all on the Match day requirements for the various Leagues the Club complete. The meeting is a rare opportunity for all Managers to come together to exchange experiences and ideas.

Pictured at Shrewsbury House Community Centre are a large number of Managers and Coaches at the September meeting all attentive, Can you spot your Manager?

Girls football – coming together pre season

girls-teamsOne of the growth areas of the Club has been in Girls football. Over the Summer two new teams have been formed at Under 9s and 11s. On the 4th September four of the teams at Under 10s, 11s, and 13s (two sides) came together for pre-season matches. Pictured are the four teams prior to kick off. 

If your daughter wishes to join one of the Girls teams from ages 8 to 14, or to simply come along to training on Saturday mornings, contact Clive on 07504 264 157 or email

Saturday Adult team – a big step forward

new-adult-sat-teamDuring this Summer the Club and Manager Helder Ribeiro, in particular – have been busy in forming a new Adult Saturday football team. A big step forward was taken on the 3rd September when the team played their very first organised match against opposition AFC Bexley. Helder reported on this event “We started in control of the game and played some great football leading to winning a penalty in the 20th minute. This moment to make history in scoring our first goal, however, was not to be as the penalty was missed by our Captain. We remained largely in control of the game but were outdone by some bad defending a minute before the break. The second half – although seeing many team changes – still saw a solid display from us including Junior Reds hitting the post and having a few good chances. Two mistakes again say Bexley score two soft goals to run out winners 3 – 0. We are now looking forward to starting our League campaign next week.”

Squad: Paul B (GK), Rory, Ryan, Ronnie, Sid, Myles, Pawel, Andy (Captain), Mukz, Nick, Toyeeb, Greg, Dave, Sam, Joshua

Andrew Wood recognised at the FA Community Awards


The FA Community awards, presented by McDonalds, aim to recognise and reward people across the country who make a difference to grass-roots football in their local community.

Junior Reds FC were particularly honoured when Andrew Wood was nominated by the London FA for an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Community Football Award. Andy works behind the scenes in the Club with a long list of roles including Assistant Secretary, Kit Manager, Charter Standard Officer, Coach Education Co-ordinator and Match Day Ambassador. Andy also takes on the challenge of organising the Presentation – a huge task.

Andy attended the FA Community Shield match on the 7th August at Wembley Stadium as a special guest of the Football Association. His role and the Club were recognised at the Award ceremony. The ultimate winner of the national award was Andrew Martin from the East Riding FA.

Andy is pictured (left) with the Community Shield before Manchester United took this back to Old Trafford later in the day – having beaten Leicester City by two goals to one.

Congratulations Andy, very well deserved wishes from all at the club.

Triathlon triumph – it takes 3
TriathlonCongratulations to Graine Feeney – the Club’s Girls Development Officer – in completing the London Triathlon event for charity in August.

The “Triathlon” is a continuous event comprising swimming, cycling and running with no rest in between. Graine writes “Undergoing major heart surgery at any age is tough. For my 28 year old nephew who was born with a heart  efect he had known the day would come and it did in January 2016.  Thankfully he has made a good recovery but he will have to continue to be monitored and may need further surgery. My sisters and I decided we would do something to help, but as none of us are medically trained we opted for the London Triathlon. Our goal was to raise £1,000 in aid of the British Heart Foundation as without their support and research people like him would not survive.  On Saturday 6 August we completed our challenge, not only finishing the triathlon but also raising more than our target.  A BIG thank you to all our supporters!”.
A great achievement ladies and a massive well done from all at Junior Reds

Fun Day at Danson Youth Centre

Danson Fun Day 16 v1JDanson Fun Day 16 v2unior Reds FC provided football activities at the Danson Youth Centre ‘Fun Day’. The event was again very well attended. To cope with demand two “Beat the Goalie” penalty shoot-out competitions were provided together with an obstacle course time trial.

Special thanks must go to our five goalkeepers. These were Abi Potter-Scarborough (U13 Girls), Ahmet Aydin (U13 Warriors); Callum Puszyk (Under 16 Athletic), Tom Forest and Matthew Fendick. All worked hard dealing with the continuous number wishing to take penalties. The adult helpers for the day were Terry McGrath; Yu Arai, and Claire Puszyk.

A big thank you to everyone who helped on the day.

JR Saturday Adults join the Bromley & District LeagueSaturday SeniorsBromley & District

It was previously reported a new Junior Reds Adult team is being formed to play football on Saturday afternoons. In July the team took a major step forward by being elected as a member of the Bromley and District League.

Team Manager, Helder Ribeiro, said “Joining the Bromley and District League is a significant milestone in our journey to form a new Adult team. Our first League game is now approximately 6 weeks away. We currently train in Danson Park at midday on Saturdays. In joining the League we will now increase this to Wednesday evenings as well so we are better prepared”.

Helder added “ We still have work to do and a few additional players are required. If you are aged 18+ and interested in playing Saturday afternoon football please contact me or simply come along to either our Wednesday or Saturday training sessions in Danson Park”.
