CAN YOU HELP A TEAM?
The club is totally dependant on volunteers to coach and manage a wide spectrum of teams ranging from Under 7’s right through to the Senior squads.
We are always looking for new volunteers to help out within the club and have the following opportunities available :-
- Assistant Coaches
- Assistant Managers
You don’t have to be an experienced FA Level 1 or 2 coach as enthusiasm and reliability are just as important.
If you’re interested and want to help then please contact:

Under 12 Athletic crowned Selkent B (North) champions
Manager Daniel stated “After a strong pre-season we went into the season with a real optimism to do well. A frustrating opening day defeat away to Orpington was the only game we never really turned up, from then on we picked up momentum and never looked back. We played some great football throughout the season, scoring the most goals and conceding the least.
The deciding game for the title came against the only team that could have caught us, Petts Wood. In front of 100+ supporters we sealed the league with a convincing 4-0 win. It’s been a long journey since we started this team 5 years ago but with the introduction of some new players last summer, we stepped up and fully deserved our success.
Congratulations to Daniel and the boys for a brilliant achievement.

A great achievement Liam, well done from all at the club.
Under 12 Sabresc crowned Selkent B (East) champions
The U12 Sabres win the Selkent U12B East Division.
An amazing season has seen the boys being the only team in the Selkent u12 to be unbeaten in league and league cup during 2014/2015 season. The stats are impressive with an unbeaten run of 22 games and scoring 85 goals and only conceding 17, which is obviously less than 1 goal per game!!!
This has resulted in the team winning the league with 4 games to spare and also reaching the Selkent cup final.
Congratulations to Nik, Spence and the boys for a brilliant achievement.

They have worked so hard at training and have performed to an exceptional standard during their matches on a Sunday. The B West league is a very competitive one and is full of teams that have pushed us all the way, so to win this league in the manner that we have is an outstanding achievement”.
Congratulations to Sam and the boys for a great achievement.

Jack Petchey Award – February 2015
FA Charter Standard Community Club Status awarded by FA
Junior Reds FC has been awarded FA Charter Standard Community Club Status by the Football Association. Only eight other clubs hold this award in London so we join an exclusive group that have attained the very highest level of the FA’s Charter Standard Award Scheme.
Charter Standard Coordinator, Andy Wood remarked “Gaining Community Club Status has been part of our Development plan for a number of years now and it’s taken a lot of hard work by many volunteers to get us to this stage. My thanks go to all those people, not only from within the club, but also the staff at the London FA with whom I have worked to achieve Community Club status. Well done and thanks to you all”.
Junior Reds were first awarded FA Charter Standard status at the “Development” level in 2002. In the last decade several distinctions have been received in recognition of the Club’s achievements. The length of time taken to reach Community status is an indication of the very high standards required. Club Chairman Clive Chivers said “I am indebted to all the Managers, Coaches and Administrative helpers in reaching this very high standard and delighted to be only the ninth Club in London to reach the top level. We have over 600 players in the Club and football is provided through the considerable commitment and dedication of over 50 volunteers”. A big thanks to all and especially to Andy Wood for driving the application.
