The programme was granted Charitable Status in January 2019, The charity number is 1181212.

standard charter


We became an FA Accredited Club in April 2021. 

Taunton Youth FC Community Trust Offers a pathway from age four through to eighteen with the potential to play non-league football. Details are here: Player Pathway

Programme Outline

The trust is a not for profit organisation.  We will keep revenue under constant review, and if at any point in the future we build a surplus this will be reinvested in the programme or used to lower the fees again.  As a charity, our annual accounts have to be published meaning that there will always be transparency.

Taunton Youth Players play in the Junior Premier League (JPL).  The Junior Premier League is a player development focused league, driving innovation and ensuring every player has a premier experience. The League is designed to provide competitive opportunities for development and advancement in youth football.

2023 – 24 SEASON

Pre-season training has now started– anticipate the first JPL fixtures Saturday 9th September.

Programme subscriptions for the year as follows:

Match Squad £550
Training Squad £250 (one training session) £300 (two trainnig sessions.

Payable monthly via Direct Debit.

The programme runs from mid- August to mid- May and as a Community Trust we endeavour to make payments easier for parents by splitting them over a 10 month period. A no-notice grace period is offered up to 30th September where only fees for two months will be due. However post this date, two months notice and fees are required to be paid unless there are special circumstances.

Playing in the JPL does require commitment, playing on Saturday mornings can involve travel down to Torquay or to Cheltenham, Bristol and Bath.  If you think your child would like to compete at an advanced level, during pre-season they are welcome to come to training to see if it is something they would like. Please contact Neil White – for more information. 



The Juniors section of Taunton Youth FC Community Trust is a Football Development Centre in Taunton. The Juniors is run in line with the Football Associations four corner model. We are passionate and committed to providing the best experience and environment for the young players to flourish. Head of Football, Gary Green runs the Juniors together with coaches who run teams who play in the Junior Premier League.  Coaches are assisted by members of our U18 Squad who are conducting their coaching qualifications with a view to developing their involvement in football beyond School and College.

Holiday sessions for 5 year olds to 13 year olds run at half term and in the holidays. For players from U6 to U11 there are training sessions run on a Monday night at Bishop Fox’s School during normal term time with advanced JPL training for U11 & U12 onwards avaiilable on our weekday training nights. . If your child is looking to develop their football skills in a fun and all-inclusive way, please check out the booking portal:

For more advanced training, please contact

Joining the club

Joining a club is veru much a trial for young players to see if they like the organisation and structure and are going to enjoy their football.  

Details in relation to what is required regarding joining the club is provided here. how the club works is contained in our welcome pack. All players are expected to attend training in training kit which consists of Yellow Top, Claret Shorts and Claret Socks, pur.chased from Somerset County Sports. For U11 - U16,Players selected for the Match Squad are also required to purchase a Claret Match Top with player number.


For new joiners we do offer a cooling off period so that players have the opportunity to work with the coaches. If a player decides they want to leave, as long as notice is given prior to the 30th September, there is no penalty. However, once you have committed to the programme and you or your child decides to leave after the 30th September, then two months advance notice is required. This means, for example, if your son/daughter wishes to finish at the end of March, you will need to give us notice in writing or email by the end of January. You will then be required to pay all fees due up to the end of March.

During the season we do not charge for players to get a taste of what we are about and they can come in any appropriate football kit with boots (Astro boots if at Bishops Fox's or Heathfield) moulds if on the grass or on the Castle 3G. Please note metal studded boots are not allowed on the 3G surfaces we play on. 

The process throughout the season is the same as at the start. Parents please go to DASHBOARD - CLUB REGISTRATION.

Match Days At The Cygnet

Half Time Raffle at Taunton Home Games

The main club  allows us to raise funds via the half time match day draw. This is only possible with the assistance of parents. Chris Grave: will be the point of contact at the start of the season, however we will be seeking:

A parent to co-ordinate this moving forward (free entry to all home game) or an age group rep to co-ordinate with Chris to ensure the draw takes place. Any parent who provides assistance will get free entry. Please contact us if you would like to take on this role.

Player Free Entry

As part of club membership all programme players will be entitled to free entry. Training / Travel Kit must be worn, otherwise an entry fee is due. The Youth Section has been given a 'privilege' in the allowance of free attendance at First Team matches. I must stress, only current members of the programme (match and training) are entitled to free entry.  Former programme participants, friends and family are not included. To facilitate this, current members can download membership cards via parent logins to screen shot and store on their phones or to print and present on entry.

Abuse of the main club’s generosity could put us in danger of losing the privilege which will mean our coaches and all U15/U16 and U18  players will have to pay if they wish to attend First Team games.  Also U11 players and younger will not be allowed to enter unaccompanied by an adult. 

When our players enter the ground, they are representing the Youth section and we expect behaviour to reflect as such.
