Season 2023/24 – A season marked by a significant increase in the number of girls in the club, with membership now over 200. The younger teams are well established in the CGFL – Chester, playing each Saturday morning at KGV, with both the U8 and U9 age groups winning their respective League Cups. More importantly it was great to see all the girls playing football with smiles, come rain or shine (or snow or hail!). The U7 girls played in friendly fun festivals culminating in 5 aside games ready for the U8 League next season. The older age groups continue to play in the Mid Cheshire League, with all teams having strong seasons, building friendships and strong team bonds. For next season there will be a change in format for our U13’s moving to 11 a side, U11’s to 9 a side and U9’s to 7 a side – great challenges lie ahead!

Our 5 week programme for Year 1 girls continues to be extremely popular with this year’s course running in June up to presentation day; we are excited to welcome over 20 new players and parents to the club.

Our annual presentation day will be on Saturday 6th July at Wealstone Lane, where we will once again celebrate the participation of all our players, and say thank you to all our volunteers.

Upton JFC Girls & Coaches – Presentation Day 2023

Season 2022/23 – As the season comes to a close, we reflect on a great year for Upton JFC girls, our younger age group numbers have been fantastic with 40 girls in U6/7 training each week. At the other end of the age spectrum, we are sad to be saying goodbye to our fabulous U13 team as some of the girls move on to pastures new, and we wish them every success with their football journey.

Our annual presentation day is on Saturday 8th July at Wealstone Lane where we will be celebrating with our players and thanking our volunteers.

On a freezing cold day in March the U9 girls organised a cake sale to raise money for Sports Relief, the girls raised over £100. Many thanks to Grace and Janette for the inspiration and organisation and to the bakers and helpers on the day.

Our friends from Waverton and Frodsham joined us for U7 and U8 friendly matches, we managed to finish before the snow started!

The U9/U11 & U13 competitive teams are now full, although training only players are welcome to join us.

Our U9 team is sponsored by Manleys Solicitors and the U11 by the Deva Group. Thanks to McDonalds for the U11 and U13 kit, they all look very smart.
