Club Rules

The club was formed in 1920 and has a long and illustrious history. We believe that our pitches at Chapeltown are the oldest football pitches in the world still in use. We extend a warm welcome to anyone wishing to play for the club irrespective of race, religion, creed or colour. The shirt must be worn with the honour and traditions of this great club. We continue to expect exemplary behaviour from all our players and members. The Committee reserves the right to censure and discipline any member found to have fallen short of these standards.

We believe that this will ensure the long and successful future of the club.

In our attempts to continue to provide the best playing and training facilities and equipment

for our members, the committee are keen to attract sponsors to the club.

We ask that our members consider using the services of our club sponsors and members wherever possible.
