A message from our Chairman, Dave Sharred.
Yet again CJFC are in the desperately sad position of another league season finishing early and government guidelines suspending all grass roots football. This is obviously very frustrating for every one. CJFC will continue to follow the guidelines set out by the government.
CJFC committee has discussed the possibility of refunding membership fees for the 2020/2021 season. The committee agree that currently the club is not in a position where it can offer any membership rebates at this moment in time.
The club has one form of income, this is through the annual membership fees. The club pays all their major expenses in September/October. The Pitch Fees, League Fees and the FA affiliation fees are all paid up front as requested by the relevant organisations. Alongside this the club has spent a considerable amount on new goals, playing kit, training equipment along with additional items to ensure that we are COVID secure.
We are a totally non for profit organisation, so all monies collected are spent on our footballers allowing them to continue to play football in a safe environment. The committee will take the current situation into account before setting the fees for the 2021/2022 season. The financial stability of the club is something that all the committee take very seriously and will not make any decisions that will put this at risk.
Cringleford JFC continues to be one of the best value for money clubs in and around Norwich. Thank you in your understanding of this matter. Everyone at the club is looking to return to a totally safe environment as soon as we are permitted.
Cringleford JFC Chairman
Cringleford JFC is a fully inclusive Junior Football Club committed to offering football to all ages and abilities.
Currently we have 22 teams playing football from U8 through to U18 as well as U6 and U7 development squads. We provide high quality training to all our players as well as run a specific girls development squad on Saturday mornings where all ages and abilities are welcome and are trained by two of our most senior coaches who between them share a vast wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm for the game. Although we are a Junior Football Club offering football primarily to boys and girls from School Year 1 up to U18 we have links with an adult team that plays in the Norwich Sunday League to ensure that our older players have a pathway into the adult game. The club’s coaches all hold a current FA DBS and the majority of our coaches hold an FA level 1 coaching qualification as a minimum with many having achieved Level 2 or higher. We continue to fund and encourage all our coaches to undertake any qualifications to enhance the footballing experience of all the young people involved with our club.
All of our teams play their home matches at Cringleford Recreation Ground, Oakfields Rd, Cringleford, Norwich NR4 6XF. Click here to see our location on Google Maps
