Ellington Juniors were formed in 1988.
We now have teams ranging from Under 7’s to Under 17’s, so every weekend over 180 boys and girls aged between 6 and 17 are playing football for Ellington Juniors FC.
In 2015 we started our first all girls team.
In 2017 we started our first senior Saturday team who are now in the Northern Alliance league.
We are a Charter Standard Football Club which means we meet the FA’s best practice guide for standards of coaching, administration and child protection.
All our coaches are FA qualified, CRB checked and each team has someone trained in Emergency First Aid. We fully endorse the FA’s new “child centred” approach to youth football. Children are not mini adults. We want them to enjoy playing football whilst at the same time developing their technique and skills.
In 2015 we signed a 4 year contract with Nike to become a Nike Partner Club. All our teams now wear Nike Strips and Training Wear. This was renewed in 2019.
