Lancashire FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year 2016

Fantastic news has just been announced for Winwick Athletic FC. We are pretty excited to have become Lancashire County FAs Charter Standard Community Club of the Year for 2016 under the FAs Community Awards programme. This is a huge honour to have been recognized at the highest possible level of Charter Standard attainment, as a Community Club, and we take this award on with great collective pride and commitment as we look to providing a sustainable future for all of the children in our Club. We have a history of being well organized and have won honours before as a Development Club between 2007 and 2011, but to do this at Community Club level now too is really amazing.CS Community Club Award 2016

At just under 400 players, from academy youngsters simply practicing having fun with a ball, through to competitive contests at open-age, with girls taking part too in all ages, with an open-door policy towards player recruitment and also by encouraging all adults to coach or to become referees for our common footballing future, we hope that in our 40th Anniversary Year here this year we can look forwards to another 40 years ahead !!

To be further announced by the FA at this same time as one of only 66 Clubs nationally to receive an FA 1966 Award too, in the 50th Anniversary Year of England’s World Cup victory of 1966, we are even more delighted to have been recognized for all of the hard work of so many in our Club. Not just the coaches and club committee, but also every single player, parent, supporter and friend of our club. Thanks to all who continue to support our Club, we will never let you down. To all players, continue to have FUN at all times, that allows all of us adults to have some fun too you know !!! You all make us smile more than you will ever know.


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)

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

A very Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year for all of our Players, Parents, Families and Friends
