HISTORY OF ROSS JUNIORS FC
The club formed only in June 2004 has gone from strength to strength and caters for over 400 children from the age of 5 to 17 years of age every weekend and training sessions during the week. Since 2013 we have started to develop girls football and now we have 100 girls playing from Under 8's through to U16's. In addition we have a senior men's team and a ladies team, a successful Wildcats section and we are working hard to establish a pan disability team.
Foe season 2019/20 season the club will have 27 teams playing football.
The club, driven forward by a very keen and dedicated volunteer workforce of parents has joined forces with the Football Association (F.A) to develop quality procedures and practices such as implementing a recognised club constitution, child protection policy and procedures, appointment of a designated child protection person, CRB, codes of conduct for players, parents, managers, coaches and club volunteers and F.A, qualified coaches.
Ross Juniors Football Club has received various awards (both individual and club level) over the years culminating with the club being awarded the FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year in 2014 for Herefordshire.
In 2014 Ross Juniors FC was one of only 96 teams in the country who was invited to be a Nike Partner Club. 2016 saw the club receive the illustrious Queens Award (QAVS) for voluntary groups, Herefordshire Chartered Standard Club of the Year and Herefordshire & Worcester Sports Club of the Year.
The club has a large and diverse group of volunteers. They are all enthusiastic and committed to the club's vision of 'football for all'. There is a brilliant team of volunteers as coaches, referees, as outstanding organizers and superb fundraisers who are all supported and developed by the club.
