The Firefighters Junior Football Club was founded in 1995 by a group of Firefighters and their friends who wanted to put together a team so that children could enjoy playing football within a community atmosphere. The club continues to maintain an association with the fire service and are proud to bear the name ‘Firefighters’.

Firefighters Junior Football Club play in the John Bryan League in Coventry and have over 14 teams ranging from under 7s to Youth. We are a community club that look to encourage young people to play football in a structured and safe environment. We have an excellent team of FA Qualified coaches and managers who aim to develop and improve the skills of every player whilst also making sure that they have a lot of fun in the process.

It is the club’s philosophy to provide a fun and social club aside from the football and believe that football is a great forum to teach the children not only basic skills, but also all the other aspects such as discipline and fair play and the total rejection of any form of discrimination in sport. All of the officials and helpers are volunteers and give a tremendous amount of their time so that young people can enjoy playing football.

We work with children from the age of 5 within our development squad “The Cadets” and have teams spanning age groups from Under 7s to Youth. We play our home games at Woodlands Academy in Eastern Green and participate across Coventry and surrounding areas, competing with some of the best teams in the city at all age groups and ability levels.
