After months of effort behind the scenes by a small group of volunteers, the programme has recently been granted Charitable Status. From now on it will be known as Taunton Youth FC Community Trust. The charity number is 1181212.
Why did this come about?
Well, after the programme expanded from 3 teams to 7 at the start of the season, it became evident that a new structure was needed - the administration and control of finances/marketing was simply becoming too much for the main club to contend with alongside their own expanding workload.
Therefore, by agreement with Taunton Town FC's management group, it was decided to explore which set up would be most suitable. Professional advice was obtained and, after much thought and research, an application to form a charity was submitted.
It is fair to say that the road wasn’t smooth and, in itself, the process has led to a number of aims and goals being revised - indeed, those of you who are ‘eagle eyed’ may already have noticed the Mission Statement has been altered on the website. However, the outcome is a model which should be sustainable for years to come.
There is still much to do and the project is very much a ‘work in progress’. More information will be released in due course and, at some point, there will be a need for a number of voluntary roles to be filled.
On this point, please see below a message from our sponsorship and marketing co-ordinator (also a trustee), Mark Warner:
Christmas Parties at Nando’s: We have had four greats nights at Nando's. Thank you for getting the children there & to Nando's for being brilliant hosts.
Team Representatives: It would be really helpful to have a representative or two from each age group to assist with marketing and sponsorship moving forward. There are opportunities to get the teams involved in the local community and it would be so much easier to arrange any activities with a nominated person. So if you would like to nominate yourself, please email
email@example.com and then a meeting can be set up to discuss plans for 2019.
Marketing & Sponsorship in 2019: If any parents / businesses wish to discuss sponsoring the programme in 2019, again please email
There are going to be some exciting opportunities for businesses to get involved, and to get their names out there alongside our charity. We will always need external help to ensure that we have the funds to cover the cost of running the programme – it is greater than you might imagine.
Our current sponsors are Nando’s, the Mount Somerset Hotel & Spa, Oerton Simm Solicitors, Site Diesel, Inter Sport Tony Pryce, Hydramatic Engineering Solutions, The Wright Removal Company, Complete Asset Protection and Bridgwater & Taunton College. We are really grateful for their support and we hope that many more companies and individuals will want to help in 2019.
For now, nothing will change on a day by day basis. For administrative matters Neil White (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the age group coaches (along with Paul West) will be your principal points of contact.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Neil on the youth address or call 07977 915 965.
Squads. Match squads for the 2018-19 season have now been organised. If you have a child who is interested in joining the programme then they are welcome to attend training to get a feel for the club and to see if they would enjoy working with our coaches. If they are happy, initially they will join the training group for their age group, with a view following further assessment and a period of training to moving them to a match squad should they be deemed ready.
Programme Fees: Annual fees for the Match programme are £350. Annual fees for the training programme are £180. To make payment easier we have split the cost over ten months with ten payments due as follows;
End of Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr and May.
If you or your child decides to leave the programme, 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.
Player Injury: If a player has a long term injury, then monthly payments are still due, however an assessment will be made at the end of the season and dispensation given if a large amount of play / training has been missed. ie. Player breaks a leg and is off for eight weeks, April's and May's payment will not be required.
Match Programme Key Dates: Please see this document outlining key dates for each age group in the programme. Please note, last league match is Saturday 11th May, last cup match is Saturday 18th May.
