Message from the Chairman

This will be the fourth season of Stonnall Juniors, where has the time gone and where have all those little players gone?
We have three teams competing again this season in the WJYL.
I’m sure our teams and players will be very well encouraged and supported along with the opposition too.
Although the teams are in competitive leagues where honours and silver wear are up for grabs the most important thing is that the players enjoy their time playing.
Too many times, and still now players are put under immense pressure to perform with little or no enjoyment.
I’m sure this isn’t the case at Stonnall Juniors where the coaches know that happiness and enjoyment is paramount to player progression.
I’m sure you will all join me in wishing the players a successful, injury free and of course an enjoyable season for 2017/18.

Neil Richards
Chairman Stonnall Juniors FC

Kit on for Pudsey Day

On Sunday Nov 20th Stonnall Juniors U13 team, Stonnall Phoenix raised money for Children in Need for our first ‘Kit on for Pudsey Day’

The players’ parents and supporters were invited to wear an item of replica football kit, hat or scarf of their favourite football team in return for a donation of £1.00. Also, hot drinks and homemade cakes were sold to home and away supporters.

The total amount raised was £52.00.

Thank you to all the parents and supporters.


As you can see from the photo, Leeds United supporters nearly outnumbered those of Aston Villa. Indeed, even the Manager was an honorary Leeds fan for the day so he could experience supporting a big club!

Footgolf Day – 9th Oct

With no fixture today Stonnall Phoenix players, parents brothers and sisters enjoyed a round or two of foot golf with a little competition of course!

The scores went from very respectable to “I lost count” and any other excuse that could be thought of!
Well done to Mick, Squiggy’s uncle who made a hole in one (that’s the fella on the right in grey) Mick has promised to buy everyone a drink the next time all those in the picture are in the same room!
The weather was great, the company and laughter even greater, thank you to everyone for a great fun afternoon.


Our sponsored walk – not just technical/tactical!

Well done to everyone from Stonnall Juniors u11s who took part in our recent sponsored walk from Stonnall to Aldridge. Thankyou also to all the parent helpers which gave up a Friday night to help make this happen.
It was a great opportunity to ensure we continued to develop all parts of our four corner model. Image below courtesy of Matt Jones, FA Tutor.
