The Club are delighted to formally announce the merger of Kirdford Youth FC with Loxwood Youth FC to form a unified youth football club for the local area, building on their respective successes and moving forward together to provide an outstanding opportunity for children of all ages and abilities to enjoy fun and competitive football.
PROVIDING YOUTH TEAMS FROM U7 THROUGH TO U16 INCLUSIVE
Kirdford Junior FC (formerly Kirdford Cougars FC) were founded in 1997 and have been a thriving community club with over 130 children playing in nine teams from U7s through to U13s on their pitches at Kirdford's Recreation and the Great Common Grounds.
In contrast, Loxwood Youth FC have focused on the older age groups with teams from U13 through to U16 based at our Plaistow Road ground and feeding directly into the highly successful senior teams.
In acknowledging the synergies that the merger provides, Roger Wood (Kirdford Juniors Chairman) said,
"I've been an active member of Kirdford Junior FC for 22 years and have been proud to watch the club groa and evolve. I'm delighted the club can move to a new level with this merger."
Dave Cocoracchio, Chairman of the newly merged Loxwood Youth FC added,
"It is fantastic to have a thriving youth set-up for all ageas at the heart of the local community, with access to excellent facilities. The children can be inspired by the senior teams' success and the youth club can provide a natural environment for locally-developed stars of the future."
Training and matches for all the age groups will take place at the grounds in Loxwood and Kirdford pn Saturday mornings and their teams will compete in the South Surrey and Horsham & District Youth Football Leagues.
All age groups are continually looking for children of all ages amd abilities to join the Club for fun, inclusive and competitive football throughout the season. If you would like to find out more then please do contact the club via firstname.lastname@example.org
