At Upton JFC we want football to be an enjoyable, positive and safe experience for everyone involved with our club. The policies and procedures on this page set out our commitments to achieving this, as a 3 Star England Football Accredited club (previously Chartered Standard Community Club).  We always welcome suggestions that help us to do things better.   
Our Club Welfare Officer is Ricardo Gomez and is the first contact for all safeguarding and welfare issues.  Contact him at 07920 237247 or  

Welfare and Safeguarding Update

We have returned to football in the 2021-22 season following an exceptionally challenging period.  Thank you to all our members who have supported us through this difficult time.  The club continues to follow the latest FA and government’s guidelines which were updated on 10 September 2021.  Both the FA and the government continue to encourage us to exercise caution and follow good practice, and this will help to minimise the risk of further disruption to training and matches.

As a club we now have over 140 volunteers, comprising Lead Coaches, Assistant Coaches and First Aiders; a massive thanks to this group, without whom we would not have a club. If anyone would like to get involved with the club as a volunteer, please get in touch.
