This evening, Monday 16th March 2020, the FA have issued a clear directive that ALL grassroots football is suspended immediately. The suspension includes training, matches and social gatherings. As the health and wellbeing of everyone associated with Overton Youth Football Club is our number one priority we will of course comply; therefore ALL activities cease immediately, bringing the likelihood of an unscheduled end to another fantastic season in the club's history.
Further updates will follow in due course but for now football is secondary to this truly unprecedented global event. We urge all of our members, their families and the wider football community to stay safe, minimise risk and follow government advice.
Yours in football
Overton Youth FC
Overton Youth F.C. was founded in 1982, formed to build on the pedigree of men’s football in Overton and its surrounding areas. Over its 30 year + history the club has gone from strength to strength - growing player numbers year on year whilst remaining a core part of the local community.
The club started as one side but now sees 13 teams across multiple age groups, competing in various leagues who are proud to wear the pale blue and white stripes of the club.
With development at the heart of our grassroots club, our hard-working committee and dedicated team managers work tirelessly to help children of all ages and abilities get active and enjoy football in a safe, secure and progressive learning environment with a key focus on togetherness and being part of a team where everyone’s contribution is of equal importance.
In 2002 the club was one of the first in the area to achieve the FA Charter Standard Accreditation. As a club we strive to maintain the highest standards and conduct associated with this, and instil this in all officials, coaches, players and supporters. We take the Safeguarding of our players seriously and pride ourselves on the standards we have and continue to set.
This site has information on all our Team Managers and Officials. Please feel free to contact them. Details of our policies and safeguarding can be found along with information about our wonderful sponsors - who we couldn’t run the club without – is worth a look too.
We hope to welcome you to one of our training sessions or games very soon!
