Developing their adult’s teams for the young players to continue their journey with SJFC but winning isn’t everything. SJFC fully support the FA’s ethos, football is for everyone not just for the best. Managers are passionate and they know they change people’s lives. Managers are then supported by the club committee, who work tirelessly not only for the club but raising money for local community charities. The Club sees itself as a community project not just a football club. Through support and belief, volunteers have improved their lives with self-belief, gone onto further education and even improved their jobs. More importantly many of the clubs young members have become referees, volunteered with the Shropshire FA Youth Council which gives them more confident and giving them direction in life.
