Chair’s Message

Welcome to Vulcan Juniors Football Club, it is my pleasure and privilege to be Chairman, trustee and a coach of what I believe to be a fantastic club at the heart of the local community. Vulcan Juniors is part of a wider charitable trust called Vulcan Football Club. We will soon be receiving the keys to our new one-million-pound sports club that incorporates extensive car parking, changing rooms, toilets a club room and kitchen.

Vulcan is a grass-roots, community-focused, FA Charter Standard-based Club, providing football coaching for children from the ages of 4 to 18. It has a large number of registered players who play in various leagues and is affiliated to Liverpool County FA.

As a club, the health, safety and welfare of every child is our first and most important priority. This is closely followed by our commitment to providing a happy and inclusive environment for children to learn and develop their football skills under the supervision of coaches, who are FA qualified and have the appropriate CRC child safety checks and emergency aid qualifications. I strongly believe that football is a game to be played and enjoyed by everyone and that success at grass roots should not be measured by the trophies we win, but by the number of children who choose to play for Vulcan and continue to play for us throughout their childhood, with a sense of belonging and always with a smile, whatever the result. However, football is also a competitive sport and so we will help our players reach the best that their ability allows as an individual and as part of a team.

As Chairman, I feel it is vital that we follow an ethos that ensures the welfare of our children is paramount, that the club is open to all players regardless of gender, race, nationality, ethnic origin, colour, religion, sexual orientation or perceived ability as a footballer. That all players, coaches and parents follow the club code of conduct and also the FA Respect Codes of Conduct and that we do not follow a win at all costs philosophy.

Thank you to all our sponsors without who we couldn’t function properly.

Please remember……….

These are kids

This is a game
