Welcome to Great Bradfords Fc

Great Bradfords Football Club are based in Braintree, Essex and formed in 1978. In the years since then we have seen over 5000 players at the club and many successes with the club name in the history books of leagues throughout Essex. The Club holds the Charter Standard award and is committeed to excellence and development in football.  

FOOTBALL’S BACK!!

The FA have confirmed that the UK Government approved their plan for the return of outdoor competitive grassroots football on Friday the 17th July 2020. As a result, the grassroots football community now has the opportunity to return to football and prepare for the start of the new season.

The FA have been working hard over recent weeks to prepare guidelines for the safe return of grassroots football and, following Government approval, these are now ready for publication. Football activity can take place with necessary modifications in place to mitigate the transmission risk of Covid-19. The FA would strongly recommend a phased return to competitive football activity as follows:

Until 31st July: when ready, you can begin competitive training, with the overall group size (inclusive of coaches) being limited to 30 people.

From August: competitive matches to begin, for example pre-season fixtures, festivals and small-sided football competitions.

From September: grassroots leagues, men’s National League System, Women’s Football Pyramid tiers 3 to 6, and FA Competitions can commence.

Clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents/carers, spectators and football facility providers should read the full FA guidelines, which are accessible via this link, in addition to the latest Government guidance on Covid-19.

An accessible version of this web page can also be found via this link.

A Welcome from our Chair

 

Welcome to the Great Bradfords Football Club home page! Through our website you will see the hard work that our great team put into the running of the club, you will learn more about the club and hopefully find some events that interest you coming up! Not only that but you will get to meet each of our teams and generous sponsors whom without Great Bradfords FC would not be possible.

Great Bradfords FC started with the aim to offer football in the Braintree area and surrounding villages. We started in a league that no longer exists in the area moving on to the Blackwater and Dengie League before eventually into the Colchester and District Youth League. As a club we now operate within six different league competitions with sixteen teams under the club banner. The growth of the club does not change who or what we are, we are a family club every manager, player, committee member, supporter are members of our family and receive the same feirce and unwaivering support that any family member would.

I am very excited about the current progression of the club and the five year plan our committee have set in place ensures we are prepared for the next steps. As a club we still need your support, we always need volunteer coaches and committee members and would love to see you involved – Contact Us Below! We also need your help, we need sponsors of course to continue the amazing work our coaches do, but more so we need help to find a new home – the club needs between 8-10 acres of land to secure a home for the whole club for the future, can you help us find that? Please let us know!

Browse our webiste, see our events and gallery and contact us if you think there is anything more you’d like to know! I hope to see you soon!
