Important Reminders : Lillington Juniors FC Latest News

As discussed last Sunday (7th June) at the end of the coaching session, here are some important dates for your diaries for upcoming events.

As mentioned on Sunday, we can't stress enough how much we rely on your support at the fundraising events we organise. We understand that it's a commitment to do so, however the money that you help raise is for your child's football club and they will in-turn benefit from the items we buy. The cost of running a junior football club, especially a club growing as quickly as ours, is extremely high and we want to ensure that we continue to provide the high standard of FA qualified coaching sessions with the correct equipment and use additional money raised for other things such as trips and activities for the children - however we can't do this without your help.

We are on various social media sites, therefore please follow us at:

  1. Facebook - and

We are, once again, organising a trip to Wembley to watch England v Estonia in the European Championship Qualifier, England's final home fixture of the qualifiers. We previously took 170 to Wembley in March to watch England v Lithuania, this was a huge success and everyone had a fantastic time! We expect this trip to be even more popular and have already received requests for over 100 tickets! To ensure we are all sat together, we need to order all our tickets at the same time and the deadline for tickets request is Sunday 21st June - please note, we are NOT asking for payment yet, this will happen at the end of July/early August. Tickets cost just 20 for adults and 10 for children, we are also organising coaches for the trip at 15 per seat. If you would like to reserve tickets on this trip then please let us know ASAP before Sunday 21st June - it's a brilliant experience for everyone!


Thank you to those that attended our karting fundraiser at Mr Karting which took place on Friday 5th June at Mr Karting in Leamington, it was a fantastic night and we raised 525 in total. We will be doing another karting fundraiser in October (date to be confirmed) where we hope to see more drivers!


Our next fundraiser is a Quiz Night at The Windmill Pub, Tachbrook Road, Leamington Spa, CV31 3DD. We are looking for teams of 6 (maximum) to come along and join us for a night of quiz questions! The cost is just 3 per person and it starts at 8:30pm, we look forward to seeing you there!


Our annual Fun Day returns on Sunday 12th July at North Leamington School on the field between 11am and 2:30pm - please note, this will replace the usual coaching session on this particular Sunday. There will be a bouncy castle and other activities for the players and their siblings, there will also be a variety of stalls selling products (list of stalls will be confirmed with you shortly) - if you would like a stall for your business then please let me know ASAP. There will also be drinks and snacks available to buy. In addition to the above, the Family Fun Day will also be the day where players can sign-on for our league teams which is what we did at last year's Family Fun Day, for those that were there.


During our Family Fun Day, we have organised a Coaches v Parents football match which will kick off at 1:30pm with two halves of 30 minutes. With both teams almost finalised, we hope that you will be there to support the coaches and parents during the match. A message will be sent out closer to the day, to both coaches and parents taking part, with more details.


After such a successful first season it seems appropriate that we should go out and celebrate!! What better way than to all meet up for a few drinks. A perfect opportunity for all of the 'adults' (coaches, helpers and parents) to get together and toast an amazing first year of the club. We hope you will join us! For those people on Facebook, an 'event' has been created, please feel free to 'join' the event page by clicking here.


We have recently placed an order for 33 children who have chosen to purchase the optional Nike coaching kit from our Nike Club Shop. While it's possible to order directly online, at the moment we would kindly ask you to place your order by emailing the items and sizes to, this is due to the number of personalised options and we'd like to keep it standard across the club. We will shortly be issuing a step-by-step guide for ordering kit directly from the Nike Club Shop so that you are able to order kit as and when you choose. Our next club order deadline, which will be the last order to guarantee kit before the season starts, will be Monday 13th July - we would need to receive an email with items and sizes before this date. Please note, we cannot give advice on kit sizes or take responsibility for wrong sizes ordered due to the kits being personalised and children growing at different rates. Player's items can be found by clicking on the "Training Wear" sections and our Nike Club Shop can be found by clicking here. If you would like to purchase items for yourself to support your child and their team, then please choose from the "Club Wear" section.


As you may know, I also run a coaching company called Top Corner Coaching in association with the club. Through Top Corner Coaching we run school holiday clubs, which are extremely popular, football birthday parties (also very popular) and we are very pleased to announce a new Soccer Skills Bootcamp which we are running once a month for your child's age group where I will personally coach specific skills which will improve your child's confidence and techniques.
  1. Summer Holiday Club
  2. Football Birthday Parties
  3. Soccer Skills Bootcamp

We now have the photos and DVD from the Presentation Evening, the photos can be viewed by clicking here and you can purchase these from our website by clicking here and scrolling to the bottom of the page. If you are ordering photos then please type the photo number in the order comments at the checkout. Photos cost 5 each or three photos for 10 - these are high resolution photos and will be sent to you via email. The DVDs cost 10 each and can be collected at the coaching sessions once payment has been received. Please pass this information on to family and friends who may be interested in ordering photos or DVDs.


To ensure our club moves forward and continues to provide an excellent community for all the children, we are looking for further volunteers to join our Parents Committee to have an input into the club - this is really key to our success! Please let us know if you would like to get more involved in the running of the club and events.
