• WIGAN SPORTS AWARDS CLUB OF THE YEAR 2014 & GREATER MANCHESTER SPORTS AWARDS CLUB OF THE YEAR 2014. Should you have any questions about our club please ring Club Secretary Rob Atherton on 07929 208623.
  • Our Aim Our vision is for the development of football to engage and excite people into a lifelong commitment to sport. To provide quality, safe opportunities for young people of all ages in our community. To help people to realise their potential, develop personal skill and confidence. To introduce people to football regardless of age, ability, sex, religion and ethnic background. To improve the performance of players, coaches and volunteers within the community. To provide a safe and positive alternative place to go other than playing on the streets.
  • Our Club Leigh Genesis FC is an FA Charter Standard Community Club, one of only 30 in the Lancashire County FA and just 2 in the Wigan & Leigh Borough. We are proud of our Chartered Standard Community Status as this is the highest possible award for grassroots football. It recognises that we are a well-managed club providing quality coaching across all age groups for both male and females. We branch out into the community with Soccer School, Goalkeeping Network, Trim Down Shape Up, Mens Social Football, Community Girls training sessions and have a Satellite Club link with Lowton High School for girls in school years 7,8 & 9.
  • Our Club Continued... In October 2014 we were awarded the “Club of the year” in the Wigan Borough Sports Awards then went on to win the same award in the Greater Manchester Sports Awards in November. In 2015 we were awarded Lancashire FA Community Club Of The Year and went on to win the Northwest Regional Award.
  • Our Coaches In order to best improve our player’s technical ability and enjoyment of the game we have invested heavily in our qualified coaches. We have some 40 coaches with qualifications ranging from FA Level 1 to UEFA A Pro-Licence. All our qualified coaches are trained in child safeguarding, emergency aid and have completed an Enhanced FA Criminal Record Check. We also offer dedicated goalkeeping and Futsal coaching.
  • Our Teams We currently have 43 teams playing in over 6 local leagues. We provide football for all levels of ability. Some of our teams play at the top level of their competition whilst other teams continue to develop in lower league competitions. Teams start at Under 5 with our Soccer Academy rising each year through to U18’s then U21’s. In the Open Age categories we have a First Team & Reserves and also run a Veterans Team. Around 10% of our membership is female with girls’ teams at U9, 11 & 12. Our teams play Saturday, Sunday and some midweek depending upon which league they compete in.
  • Our Teams Continued... The football season typically runs from September through to May with some younger age groups having a winter break. All teams train at least 1 day per week and we train all year round. We have winter training venues with all-weather pitches and floodlights. Presentation Nights are in June thus completing a year round spell of football activity.
  • Our Future Our plans for the future focus on having our own home at Lowton High School, where we have access to 4 grass pitches, changing rooms, toilets, ample car parking and plans for a Club House. The site has a full size floodlit Astroturf pitch which is already in use by many of our teams. The grass pitches are expected to be ready summer 2016. Should you have any questions about our club please ring Club Secretary Rob Atherton on 07929 208623 or speak to your Coach, Manager or Age Group Manager.
