Community Day at Chester FC - Saturday 9th March 2019

posted Feb 22, 2019, 6:05 AM by Club Webmaster   [ updated Mar 1, 2019, 6:15 AM ]

It’s Community Day on Saturday 9th March at the Swansway Chester Stadium, when Chester FC take on Leamington.

Hundreds of free tickets will be available for children from local schools and grassroots clubs to pack out the Intilery South Stand for the match and take part in a half-time parade around the pitch.

Waverton AFC have been invited to share the free children's tickets available for the match with our players and it would be great if we could create a sea of yellow in the stand. Accompanying adults are only £10 each so a great opportunity to see Chester FC in action.

Pre-game there will be a host of activities on offer at the Swansway Chester Stadium including free face painting, football inflatables. The Community Trust, who will be raising funds at the match to support the charity’s work, will be running free football sessions on the day for boys and girls along with walking football taster sessions for older supporters.

So, what are you waiting for?  Tickets need to be pre-requested so to secure yours, please get in touch with your AFC Waverton Team Coach to let them know how many tickets you'd like. We'll book them with Chester FC and pass them on to you on the day.

Pop Saturday 9th March in the diary now so you don't forget, message your coach now and join other AFC Waverton players in the stand on the day.

The U6's were delighted to pay the Neston Nomad's this morning and played some great football. For some of the boys and girls it was their first friendly match and they all did really well.

Big thanks to the Neston Nomads players, coaches and parents as well as our coach, Robbie, for organising. We'll hopefully be having a few more friendlies over the coming months and will of course head off to Neston to play the Nomads again.

Our Year 1 and Reception boys and girls train at 9am on a Saturday morning at Christleton Sports Centre. If you have a player who would like to get involved, it doesn't matter if they've not played football before, then please get in touch and they can join in the fun!

Have you heard of the new FA campaign ‘We Only Do Positive'?

posted Jan 23, 2019, 1:26 PM by Club Webmaster   [ updated Jan 23, 2019, 2:27 PM ]

'We Only Do Positive' aims to promote and educate coaches and parents on their roles in creating a fun, safe and inclusive environment for all the players, ensuring they have great experiences throughout their football journey.

In 2017-18 the FA carried out extensive research in to football from U7s–U18s. One clear piece of insight from their research highlighted is that 9 in 10 children play better with positive encouragement. Their new campaign updates the codes of conduct for Spectators and Parents, Coaches, Match Officials and of course Young Players.
Why not check out the new Codes of Conduct or find out more about the 'We Only Do Positive' campaign on the FA Website?
