Barrowby FC is an FA Charter Standard accredited club
that has been in existence for several years. We
manage the club in accordance with the requirements of
the Football Association and actively support the FA
Respect campaign and the implementation of the
recommendations from the FA Youth Review.
All our Managers and Coaches have undertaken the
required FA training and everyone is CRB checked.
We welcome everyone to Barrowby FC. The aim of the
club is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment to
play and watch football regardless of age, gender or
For every player, a key objective is to create an
atmosphere in which they can learn/develop their
footballing skills and enjoy themselves in a fun/learning
and safe environment.
As a result of how we manage the club and our
approach to providing children’s football some of our
teams are quite successful in the competitions in which
they compete. Whilst success is welcomed, we believe
that it is important that children enjoy their football
regardless of results and would encourage everyone to
accept and support this approach. The ethos of the
club is to compete in all matches; however, we will not
play to win at all costs.
The club aims to ensure that all players in teams where
match results are not published each receive an equal
amount of playing time throughout the season as far as
is possible. For older teams who play in leagues where
results are published, by necessity, a more competitive
approach is taken.
The number of players signed to each team takes into
account a mixture of each person’s ability, fitness,
availability and conduct. However, it is essential that we
have Team Managers and Coaches to manage the
teams. The club provides training and supports people
to become Team Managers and Coaches.
Each season we aim to have teams in all age groups
from U7 to U16 who play in various leagues in the East
Midlands. The club also have a Veteran Men’s team and
a Senior Men’s team. Each season we have about 150
junior players and 40 adult players as members of the
club. The players come from not only from the village of
Barrowby but also from Grantham and surrounding area.
The club is very proud to have the use of probably the
best changing room facilities in the local area. The club
is grateful for the support we receive from Barrowby
Parish Council and the Football Association.
We look forward to welcoming you to Barrowby FC.
