As a community club, 1874 Northwich FC has had a long standing ambition to be able to offer football to children, of all ages and abilities, in the Northwich area. We started with a single squad in 2017, who played at U7 level in the Mid-Cheshire Youth Football league (MCYFL). We have watched this team grow and develop and are rightly proud of the two teams, Greens and Jets, who are now playing at U13 level, and include many children from that first squad.
We have been pleased to see additional age groups join the 1874 family and in 2023/24 we can now offer football at four Junior age groups – U9, U12, U13 and U15. Our aim is to provide excellent coaching in a fun and safe environment.
