Coronavirus Update 10th September 2020

In accordance with the latest announcement regarding the government measures about coronavirus, the Club notes that “organised team sports will still be able to proceed” therefore we are continuing to train and prepare for the coming season. We will, of course, review this in light of any subsequent changes.

In accordance with the FA update on the 17th July, the Club has reviewed the guidance, and match play can now be included in training. Please see updated Club Guidance for coaches and parents. We encourage all our members to speak to their coaches or a member of the Executive Committee if they have any concerns.

Year End Review & Reports

July 5th should have been our presentation day; the day each year where we celebrate the participation and successes of each player and team, and we say thank you to all our volunteers and parents & guardians for the effort they put into making Upton JFC such a fantastic club.

While we haven’t been able to meet as a club this year we have produced a year end review with a report for each team, click here to see a copy: Upton_JFC_End_of_Season_Reports.pdf

Huge thanks to Luke Scott from the U8’s for his time and creative input and to all the coaches and volunteers for the write ups.
