Club launches new grassroots initiative

Basingstoke Town FC are proud to be able to offer a new youth team structure to the community, giving kids within the local area a unique modern football development opportunity. Coached by a very experienced team of varying FA qualified personnel, who deliver sessions that both challenge and embrace children’s enjoyment of the game they all watch and play on FIFA.

Initial Approach (U11s)

BTFC are now accepting all ages from U7s to U11s however, as this is a new initiative, we will roll it out in a phased approach. That is to say that we will be entering one age group (U11s) into the Peter Houseman Youth League to start with, from September 2017, with the team’s home games being played at Everest Community College. From here we will continue to accept mixed aged groups for training, with a view to enter more teams into relevant leagues over the coming months and with friendlies and end of season tournaments being played whenever possible.
