New players welcome for 2022/23 football season

Bourton and Frankton Football Club will begin preparations for the new football season next week and are inviting new players to join them for the forthcoming 2022/23 campaign.

Based in the village of Bourton-on-Dunsmore near Rugby and with a history spanning over 100 years, Bourton and Frankton are one of the oldest and few remaining village football clubs in existence in the local area.

For the new season they will once again be playing in the Coventry Alliance Football League on Saturday afternoons. Pre-season training gets underway next Tuesday 5th July at 7:00 pm (meet for 6:45 pm) at their ground on Main Street, Bourton-on-Dunsmore.

As an FA Charter Status Club, the club continues to offer excellent facilities and is recognised as having one of the best pitches and playing surfaces in the region outside of non-league football. In addition to changing facilities and showers, Bourton and Frankton’s training facilities have been further boosted in recent times with an upgrade to its floodlighting system. As well as enjoying a thriving social scene, club training will be held every Tuesday evening 7.00pm to 8.30pm (meet 6.45pm) throughout the course of the season.

Bourton and Frankton have an excellent track record over the years of developing and bringing through young talent. With that in mind, they are again keen to hear from and welcome players aged 16 years and over; including those who are looking to make the transition from junior/youth football into Saturday adult/senior level, as well as adult players who are maybe considering and looking for a change of club.

In an exciting new development for the club, Bourton and Frankton will also be running an Under 15 youth team this season. Having successfully run junior and youth teams in the past, the new team will be playing in the Northampton and District Youth Alliance League on Sundays during the 2022/23 season. More news on this to follow soon!

If you are interested in joining Bourton and Frankton FC as a player for the coming football season and would like further information, please contact Malcolm Smith on 07982 835571 or Stuart McQuillan on 07852 999890.
