Coxheath & Farleigh JFC continue to excel in bringing grassroots football to the surrounding area, with a successful Academy on Saturday Mornings for Children Age 6 onwards, which is run by fully qualified FA Coaches, this enables children to develop there footballing ability and progress into the various teams which in accordance with The FA Requirements play non- competitive football between Ages 8 – 11. Coxheath & Farleigh currently have teams at Ages. 8 , 9, 10, 11, 12 and 18, which play in The Invicta Primary League, Maidstone Boys Primary League & The Maidstone Minor League.
Last Season saw the Academy go from strength to strength with increasing attendance, and as a result of the development, this has enabled us to have two teams this season(2015-16) at Under 9’s, proof of the success of the club and standard of coaching provided. This season we are hoping to raise the standard even higher and establish a connection with a local soccer school.
Anyone interested in their child joining the Academy should in the first instance make contact with the Club Committee Members details of which are outlined below.
From a team perspective, the Under 10’s were successful in reaching the Cup Final which was held at The Kent FA Headquarters at Cobdown , and despite a good performance were unlucky to lose in the Final
At the end of each season teams always take part in various tournaments throughout the County and The Under 9’s reached the Semi Final of The Barming Tournament, whilst The Under 11’s reached the Semi Final of Anchorians Tournament.
The Under 18 Colts were however successful in winning the Maidstone Minor League Division 2 Title losing only 1 game all season, whilst also reaching the Cup Semi Final only to lose after Extra Time.
As with all youth football we rely heavily on volunteers and the coaching staff has increased year by year and as a club it is important that all coaches and helpers are DBS Checked and work towards achieving their Coaching Badges and obtain FA Level 1 Coaching Qualification as a minimum, whilst also attending The FA Safeguarding Children Workshops together with the appropriate First Aid Qualifications.
A number of our teams have also been successful in achieving individual team sponsorship and financial support, and The Management Committee thank all businesses and companies for their financial support, both last season and for the coming season, the monetary donations enable Coxheath & Farleigh JFC to assist with the funding of the club.
As a mark of our success The Committee are currently in the process of working closely with The Kent FA, in order to achieve and make Coxheath & Farleigh Junior Football Club an FA Charter Standard Club, which hopefully will enable the club to progress and develop to even high standards and encourage more children to join and participate in Grass Roots Football.
