Who we are
Moston Junior Football Club is a Charter Standard Community Club that is based in North Manchester and sources its players in the main from the areas of Moston, New Moston, Blackley and Harpurhey. These areas are recognised as areas of social deprivation and the club whilst being one of the area’s largest and leading junior clubs prides itself in providing opportunities for all of the local community to participate in football.
The club operates teams in the Manchester and Tameside Leagues from 5 years to 21 and then works in partnership with FC United of Manchester and Mostonians FC to transition young players into adult football. It also works closely with Whitemoss Juniors FC and Moston Futsal Development School to both encourage players to be active and to play football in a stylish and competitive manner and through its 20 years, teams at all ages have regularly won leagues and cup competitions with the Manchester County Cup (which is the FA Cup for junior players!) having been won an impressive 7 times.
Moston Junior Football Club works tirelessly in the community to encourage and develop improved standards of health and social responsibility with a wide range of adults and children. The successes achieved by the football teams merely emphasises the quality of the coaching that is being delivered. In addition, the success of the teams has not been at any cost and with many of the teams, children are encouraged and have moved on into professional football – again an aim of the club to allow players to develop and play at the highest level they can achieve. The quality of coaching extends also to the way in which the football is played, with an exemplary disciplinary record and a range of positive comments from opposition parents and coaches about the way in which players and coaches conduct themselves and that this is also a key feature of the club.
