Crusaders Football

Football, Fun, Friendship and Fitness!

Disrupted due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we will resume as and when we are allowed.

Crusaders Football is a group of people who seek to bless the wider community through providing football, fun, friendship and fitness for children and young people under the age of 13. Although we do have older players joining us regularly.

The team has been operating for over 18 years and over those years the children have played in the National Crusader 6-a-side competition in Birmingham.  We have always been run as a service to the community and there is no charge for children that come along, but the parents often give us a donation towards replacement equipment and times when we need an alternate location (i.e. the pitch is waterlogged). It is a great blessing to see how we are supported by the parents who are so impressed by what we do and grateful to the church for providing this football group, to the extent that one of our regular Dad’s asked if he could help as he loved what we were doing. Now he comes every week with or without his child!
