Welcome to Charnock Ridgeway Juniors FC.
Our football club was formed in 1984. At the local Charnock School due to sport not being played. So a small group of parents from the Charnock estate came together and formed a team to play in the Redgate Junior Sunday League as it was then called. The team was named Charnock Junior Football Club.
We only required a small area to play, as we only had a Under 11's team to start with. A couple of miles away in Ridgeway village we were eventually offered an area of land to expand the club. The parents had to mark out the pitch and also helped out by originally making homemade goalposts.
The main point of focus was that the players enjoyed playing as part of a team, whether they had won,drawn or lost. This has been a major part of the club ethos ever since. To enjoy the game and give your all no matter the circumstances.
In 1986 we changed our name as we played in Ridgeway village it was decided that we would rename the club Charnock Ridgeway Junior Football Club. We now have teams from Under 7`s to Under 16`s in what is now called the Sheffield and District Junior Sunday League.
The club is organised by a committee. This consists of President,Chairman,Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Manager/coach representative, Treasurer and the Welfare Officers . The club has been helped and supported by many parents and volunteers over the years. They have been involved with various different jobs such as fundraising, putting up nets and goal posts and also collecting litter before their team departs. Without all these tasks being completed the teams would be unable to function.
We are Charter Standard Accredited through the Football Association. All teams have the minimum of one FA level 1 coach within there team as well as all volunteers who work with the children being FA CRC checked and attending an FA Safeguarding course.
