BGBCFC has been meeting on Monday evenings 8:30-9:30pm since 2003, with around 30 people each week enjoying an intensely competitive yet fun, fair and clean hour of football together.
The venue is the floodlit astroturf pitch at the New Beacon School, TN13 2PB. We pay £3 each, with any profits going to charity at the end of the year. It’s open to anyone aged 15+ (under 18s must be accompanied by a parent). Ability levels vary, and everyone is accepted! New players are always welcome – feel free to get in touch with Matt Young or Nick Arnott if you have any questions.
Here’s our five golden rules
1. Sign up
- By midnight Saturday (using the contact button below).
- You will receive an email saying you can’t play if we have reached our limit for that week.
2. Turn up
- If you signed up and then can’t make it text 07952 965294 to let us know so that someone waiting in the wings can take your place.
3. Pay up
- £3.00 before the game starts (50p goes to a local charity).
4. Play up
The rules are:
- Shin pads.
- No blades.
- Hand ball: If it hits you between the shoulder and finger it is handball – no buts!
- No swearing.
- If you kick the ball over you go and get it straight away (deflection off the keeper means the shooter gets it).
5. Pray up
We are a church-based football team and are happy to pray about anything with or for you at the end of the night or privately on another occasion.
