SJFA Joins Chiltern Church Junior League

The “ONE TEAM” is excited to announce that from the 2018/2019 season, SJFA will enter new waters by joining the Chiltern Church Junior league. Our Under 8’s, 14’s and 6’s will be the first teams to join a league with the first fixtures to be played on 29 September.

The journey started back in Match 2018 when a pulse survey was sent to ALL parents of the under 8’s, 14’s and 16’s to ascertain whether there was an appetite to join a league. Those parents who responded positively have since competed a registration form and I am pleased to share below the “ONE SQUADS” for the Under 8s, 14’s and 16’s.

The “ONE TEAM” would like to thank the coaches for the Under 8’s, 14’s and 16’s for their commitment and drive. What was a dream only 12 months ago is now a reality. Inshallah this will provide a platform for the other age groups to join a League in the future.
