This is the first time in the 10 year program of junior football at Chadlington that we will have an age group at this level.
Following an AGM at the Oxfordshire Football Association offices in Witney the team has been placed in the U17 A Division of the Oxfordshire Invitation Youth League.
The team is made up from many players that played for Broughton & North Newington last season which won the Oxford Mail Under 16 B League and have looked to move to take advantage of better facilities and greater club support.
Chadlingtons Matt North will be the team manager and says that "we are really looking forward to playing at Chadlington next season and making the most of the great facilities here. You'd struggle to find a better set up in the region and I know that its a place that the players will enjoy their football".
Club spokesman, Greg Kemp comments that "this is a great opportunity for Chadlington FC. It builds on the recent strategy of focusing on young players and it boosts the transition between boys football and the adult teams to aim for greater participation and retention going forward".
The club is now looking for sponsors to work with in supporting the new side and welcome any inquiries.
New kit for 2018/19
The team will be training in Banbury during the week and playing home league and cup games on Sundays at Chadlington.
