Club exceeds FA target and now has 38 Licensed Coaches (ie. 95%) !!


Delighted to be able to report that a significant input of effort by all of our FA Level 1 and Level 2 Coaches has resulted in Winwick Athletic FC exceeding the FA Target for 90% of them to be at Licensed Coach Status. We are proud to report 95% as we now have a massive 38 FA Licensed Coaches in our ranks looking after the children in our teams.

A huge pat on the back to all of our coaches from your Club Committee, and I am pretty sure that the FA, and in particular our parent Lancashire County FA, will be pretty pleased too (#madeupClubSecretary)

From all at Winwick Athletic FC.
Patric Wilson Club Player of the Year 2009b

Sadly today we lost Patric Wilson, a lovely lad who cared about everyone, especially his family and fellow team-mates. It has been a thorough pleasure knowing Patric through all of his time playing football at Winwick Athletic. I feel privileged to have been one of the coaches who looked after him in one of our U9 teams. All of us know first-hand how determined he was to play and to improve in his game, plus to enjoy playing sport with his team-mates. His determination has certainly been evident for all to see over the last 15 months as he fought hard to battle against this horrid disease. Heaven gains an angel, we lose a truly nice person and words cannot describe the loss the Club feels. Back in 2009 as an U9 player he won our Club Player of the Year Award. During the last 15 months Patric returned to play a few matches for his U16s team; he was determined to do so for his mates despite all he was going through personally. Once again as an U16 player he became Club Player of the Year 2015. This demonstrates what an exceptional young man he was, he brought joy to many and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with Julie, Simon, Rhyan and his family. Rest in Peace Patric xx
