Welcome to Holmfirth Town Junior Football Club
A very big welcome to Holmfirth Town Football Club!
Dr Andy Williams, as Vice Chairman, heads up our administration. Andy was the former head of Holmfirth High School for many years, and so highly rated that he also managed Fartown High School at the same time.
I formed Holmfirth Juniors as my project for the Holmfirth community in 2011. Whilst I played professionally for five years, and worked in the professional game for 17 years (working my way up to be chief executive at Huddersfield Town), since forming the club I have fallen in love with coaching! I take the Under 4 to Under 7 foundation years at the club, and have taken the full FA (Football Association) youth award, and UEFA B coaching licence, to be the best I can at coaching.
We have booming numbers from Under 4 to Under 12 and are always looking for more children to join the club! Boys and girls of any ability are welcome. We also have children with us from every single school in Holmfirth! Come and have a month on us to ensure you like it too!
Our USP is UEFA B standard coaching for all our age groups (which is three levels of junior coaching; the full FA youth award; and two levels of adult coaching qualifications – and is the qualification that professional academy coaches have to earn).
Shaun Weatherhead (also an ex professional footballer who undertook his coaching badges many years ago in preparation for growing his own community project) coaches the U8-U12s.
We also boast the best mini soccer pitches and training facilities in West Yorkshire. In my eight years of doing this, I haven’t seen better. We hire the outfields of our two Holmfirth cricket club partners – so it’s like playing on a carpet! And the best indoor winter training facility in West Yorkshire at Shoot 5.
To be the best we can be we have a quite superb club management team; all professionals in their field and all doing their bit voluntarily for their beloved Holmfirth community.
