Rothwell Juniors Football Club

Phased reOpening

Following announcements from the Government and the FA in June 2020, Rothwell Juniors FC will have a phased reopening for a limited number of restricted training sessions during the week commencing 15th June 2020. The restrictions are unsuitable for the youngest players. Currently there will be No Matches or Saturday Morning Mini Soccer sessions.

We will continue to re-evaluate the situation as and when advice changes.

In partnership with Leeds United, Rothwell Juniors Football Club is delighted to announce the launch of our Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre based at our home ground Fleet Lane.

Rothwell Juniors Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre sessions will take place on a weekly basis, on a Thursday evening 18:30-19:30. We aim to provide a safe environment for girls to have fun engaging football, make new friends, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.

Rothwell Juniors runs Mini Soccer sessions for boys and girls on Saturday mornings for children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1. They are held on our outdoor 3G artificial turf pitch, so children should wear weather appropriate clothing, shin pads and astroturf trainers if possible. It is also advisable to bring a bottle of water!

We recommend children are 4 years old before attending as it can be overwhelming for younger ones.

The sessions restart on Saturday 7th September at 09:00 and end at 10:15 on a £2 pay as you go basis.

For children in school year 2 and above, please check our player recruitment page for details of age groups that are recruiting new players.
