In youth football, U13 is the start of 11 v 11 on a full size pitch and Thursday 12th April (postponed from Thursday 15th March) sees Taunton's U13's playing at the Viridor Stadium for the first time on Taunton's very own pitch. With the normal home venue on the playing fields of Taunton and Bridgwater College (Taunton Site), this gives the youngsters the opportunity of a 'First Team' experience playing under flood lights at the home of the Peacocks.
The match on the 12th is a bit of a derby match against opponents Bridgwater and with free entry, it is the ideal opportunity to come and support your local club and watch the fruits of Taunton Town's brand new development programme. Currently running U12, U13 and U15 match and training squads, training takes place on a Tuesday evening at Bishop Fox's Astro with Junior Premier League matches on a Saturday. Considering the squads have only been together since September the quality and skills on display are second to none and it will be well worth coming down to watch an entertaining game of youth football.
If you have a child looking to join next year's programme we will be conducting trials on Tuesday 15th May to select match squad players for the following age groups (2018 / 19 Season):
U11, U12, U13, U14 and U16.
Please go to https://youth.tauntontown.com/Trial-Registration.php to register your child for participation in the trials.
Football is open to everyone, and the emphasis at Taunton is development. That is why we also run a training squad, so with work, attitude and endeavour the opportunity exists for promotion to the match squad. So if your child still wishes to play for his grass roots team, but would like the expert coaching that Taunton provides, you can also note interest for joining Tuesday night training only.
We will also be looking to recruit FA Level 2 coaches and coach assistants as the programme expands. So if you can commit to Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings and want to join this very exciting period of club expansion, please drop a CV to [email protected]
Kick off is at 7pm, playing four twenty minute quarters. Thursday gives you a fantastic opportunity to meet the coaching team so make sure you're there early...Up The Peacocks!
