Presentation Day 2018

Over 500 players came together to celebrate another fantastic season of football. Players (girls and boys) from 5 to 17 were all presented with a trophy in recognition of their contribution to the teams. Too many thank yous to mention everyone, but particular thanks to all the volunteers who make this club a friendly and happy place to play the beautiful game.

Frodsham Tournament

Upton Girls were out in force at the Frodsham Tournament on 23/24 June. The U7 team was unbeaten in their 4 friendly matches against Waverton and Frodsham and the U8 team played really well in the U9 division, with 1 win and 1 draw in their 5 matches, this team is coming together really well, and the players are looking forward to playing in their age in the league next season.

The U9 and U11 teams were proud runners up in their respective finals against Crosfield and Frodsham. All girls represented the club with a fantastic team spirit and attitude. Amazing results for our first competitive season. Well done to all coaches, parents and players for making this such an exciting day and thanks to Frodsham for hosting such a great event.

Upton Junior Football Club – FA Community Club of the Year

Upton JFC is proud to announce that they are the 2017 recipients of the Cheshire FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year award.  The club prides itself on its inclusive philosophy and endeavours to provide football for all; this has been demonstrated this season with the development of girls’ football training, and the inclusion of a new Open Age team and the well-established Vets team in the Chester & Wirral League.

These initiatives have proved very successful, with over 50 girls now training each week, and teams preparing to play competitively in the Cheshire Girls League next season.  Additionally, there was success for the Open Age team in winning the Cayzer Shield, a match played at the Chester FC stadium.

The junior boys’ teams within the club, continue to go from strength to strength, with strong numbers in all age groups. There has also been great success this year, with the U10, U11, U12, U13, U14 and U15 teams all represented in Cup Finals. The U12’s winning the Knock Out Shield, while the very successful U14’s team won both the Eastham & District JFL Cup and the Chester & District Knock Out Cup.

As Steve Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of Cheshire FA said, “the annual FA Community Awards presented by McDonald’s aim to recognise and reward the people and organisations that are driving grassroots football.

There is no doubt that the quantity and quality of all our Award Winners this year is a brilliant reflection of the astounding work that is being carried out by volunteers and clubs – male and female – young and old – across Cheshire.”
