It’s time to say ‘bye-bye’ to the baubles, and ‘ta-ra’ to the turkey because for the first time in 2017, football is back for Fairford and Lechlade YFC! 

On Saturday, the Under 9s travel to South Cerney, kick off 10:30am,

Twenty four hours later, on Sunday, eight of our teams will be in action. The Under 7s and 12s will face Purton FC, while the Under 8s will be in action against Lydiard Millicent Juniors. All three games kick off at 10:30 a.m.

Two of our Under 11s, the Saxons and Vikings will be at home with the Saxons playing Ferndale Rodbourne Rebels, while the Vikings face Royal Wootton Bassett Town, also kicking off at 10:30 a.m.

The U11 Celts are away with a noon kick-off against AFC Newbury. Completing Sunday’s action, the Under 18s will face FC Chippenham, with a 2pm kick-off.

The kitchen will also be open for the morning matches with tea and coffee on offer, and for those of you looking for a break from the traditional New Year healthy eating kick, bacon rolls and sausage sandwiches.
