After a heavily disrupted season due to Covid-19, Burton Joyce Football Club finally started to get things back to normal in late spring. The club has grown to over 30 teams and provides football for girls and boys from 4 years old to adult football and is home to a Downs Syndrome team as well.
As Covid restrictions were lifted the teams were able to complete their League seasons and at the end of June a two-day Presentation Weekend was held under the latest government guidelines. This ensured that teams got to receive their end of season medals and play some in-house trophy matches.
The local Parish Council was present with Robin Ringham and Lawrence King at the Poplars Sports Ground to hand over the inaugural Parish Council Community Trophy to the winners of a round robin competition between U9 teams.
Jacob from the U9s also walked off with the Young Player of the Year award ahead of the other 450 players at the club and was commended for his work rate, ability, attitude and personality.
Recently the girls from Burton Joyce FC wanted to give something back to the community that has supported them this past year. They organised a litter pick to raise funding to buy all of the girls in all our teams training kit for the coming season. It was a huge success and they thank The Lord Nelson, Trent Valley Councillors and Clearance Clarence for support on the day.
