About the club
Junior Reds FC was established in 2001 as a grassroots football club based in South East London with the aim of providing both male and female players of all ages the opportunity to play and enjoy football in a safe and well-structured environment.
The club primarily operates from Bexleyheath, Kent, but also utilises a number of venues across both the London Boroughs of Bexley and Greenwich. The club has consistently grown over the seasons and is now one of the largest providers of football in the whole of the South East.
The club is proud to say that we are an FA Charter Standard Community Club and this accreditation means that we as a junior football club value the importance of child safeguarding, the high standard of our coaches as well as fully embracing the values of the FA’s Respect programme.
The club’s teams compete in the South East London and Kent Youth League (SELKENT), the Tandridge Youth Football League and the Kent Girls and Ladies Football League. Whilst the club’s focus has been to develop our youth players, we also have a number of competing adult teams for both male and female players. These teams are members of the Woolwich and Eltham Sunday Football Alliance (WESFA) and the South East Counties Women’s Football League (SECWFL).
Junior Reds also provides a casual based group called the ‘Saturday Soccer Club’. This is designed for children who are new to starting in football and is away from team competitions or for those who simply wish to play on a less committed basis.
Junior Reds FC is a non-profit organisation and is staffed entirely by volunteers. The club welcomes players of all abilities and backgrounds with the aim of providing a safe environment for all to enjoy football.
