Horsepower boost for our U7 Tornadoes!

Kicking off with the next generation…Under 5s!

We’re planning for the future and we want you to be part of our journey!

Woburn & Wavendon FC will be delivering fun football sessions for Under 5s (School Foundation Year) this April to give the children an introduction to all the excitement that comes with the sport.

Ben Chilwell – Remembering where it all started…as a Woburn Cub!

In their March 2019 edition, CelebrateMK were able to speak with Ben Chilwell (Leicester City FC and England international player) regarding his exciting journey to becoming a professional footballer and playing at the highest level.

In the article; Ben mentions his first grassroots match as a WWFC player (Woburn Lions) and tells his story of how he got to where he is now.

A great read for any player to see how the football journey can evolve!

Get Involved! An opportunity to run a new WWFC Women’s team.

As we relaunch the Lionesses Wildcat Centre, which focuses on girls aged 6-11, we’re also delighted as we’re putting together a 2nd Women’s team! However we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join the WWFC family and help run the team.

Please take a look at our flyer, which has the roles on offer and contact us if you’d like to get involved!

Recognition for our Groundsman

Our teams are fortunate enough to have access to 7 locations with well developed and maintained pitches throughout the year (regardless of a very dry Summer!) and this is due to the effort put in by our Groundsman (and Chairman!) Robert Hill. The club aren’t the only ones who have noted his dedication to this as Robert was recently commended during the Groundsman of The Year 2019 awards by the Beds FA.

A huge well done to the winners, runners up and all involved! 

Beds FA Groundsman of The Year 2019

Our Lionesses Wildcats Girls Football Centre is back!

Following the success of our centre last year (one of the FA’s most successful Wildcats Centres!), where we welcomed over 60 girls to our sessions and formed 2 new Lionesses teams from the group; we’re delighted that we have once again been sanctioned to deliver a centre serving Milton Keynes and West Bedfordshire.

For girls aged 6-11 years, the sessions will take place every Sunday morning at Woburn Village Playing Fields (MK17 9QD). Commencing on Sunday 10th March, they will provide a safe environment for girls to make new friends, develop fundamental skills, take part in fun and engaging football sessions as well as create the foundations for a lifelong love of sport.

If you’d like to find out more, please email: wildcats@ww-fc.co.uk

We’re pulling our socks up to support Harry!

We previously shared the story of a local boy called Harry Banks (Mad About Harry) who is 10 years of age, attends Fulbrook Middle School and lives in Aspley Guise. As a club, we wanted to lend our support to Harry and have spoken with our local leagues and Bedfordshire FA about fundraising over the next 2 weekends (2nd & 9th February).

We are inviting all our team players, coaches and parents to wear a pair of socks of their cho…ice in return for a minimum £1 donation for Harry. It would be great if our fellow League teams would like to join in too.

So whether it’s socks for your favourite football team, a great pair of leg warmers, or that special Father’s Day pair, please join in and make a difference.

We have set up a Just Giving page for people to donate and arranged for collections to be held at WWFC playing locations on the day.

Thank you for your support.

Another year as a FA Standard Charter Club.
