Holbrook Hornets is a local football club, primarily serving the villages on the Shotley Peninsula .
We currently cater for boys and girls 5-a-side football for Under 8's, 7-a-side up to Under 10’s, 9-a-side for Under 11's and 11-a-side boys football from Under 14’s to Under 16's. We are also keen to start up a girls' Under 14 squad over the course of this season.
All teams play in the South Suffolk Youth League (see link to website for tables & results) and all games kick off at 10.30 on Saturday mornings.
As a club affiliated to Suffolk FA and having achieved the FA Charter Standard, we operate entirely within their regulatory guidelines. All team coaches are qualified to the appropriate level for the team they are associated with, and we keep an adult to child ratio of no more than 1:10 at the lower age groups on training nights. All coaches are First Aid qualified and fully CRB checked.
The club also has a qualified Child Welfare Officer and four FA affiliated referees.
Holbrook Hornets fully endorses the FA “Respect” campaign.
Home matches are usually played at the Peninsula Sports Centre within Holbrook High School which boasts changing facilities, toilets and some refreshments.
