Clevedon Junior Football Club were awarded the Somerset FA Charter Standard Development Football Club of the year at the county awards ceremony.

Clevedon Junior Football Club were invited to attend the Somerset FA annual County awards ceremony and were delighted to receive the award for Somerset FA Charter Standard Development Football Club of the year.

This recognises the club as the best in the area for development of young people and is a massive achievement for a club, which has grown to more than 300 players, which includes both a boy’s and girls’ section and is run entirely by volunteers.

Without those volunteers, the club could never be as successful as it is and a massive thank you must go out to them.

The award was accepted by chairman Colston Ridge, registration secretary Joanna Williams and girls’ section secretary Paul Ryan.

Club secretary Roxanne Found, said: “Everyone involved in the club, volunteers, parents and most importantly, the children, should feel extremely proud of this achievement, to receive the nomination was great but to win, fantastic.

“This shows that the processes we have in place are just what is required to ensure the children have fun and are able to develop and improve in a secure, safe environment.

“This is a great time to be involved with Clevedon United Junior Football Club, each year we are getting bigger and better.”
