Please review the 'GUIDELINES' issued with the previous newsletter, which can be downloaded here for reference.

Because of the current health risks surrounding Covid-19, we have conducted a 'risk assessment'.  This is available for all parents to download.  

For other general details, please refer to the 20-21 Season Welcome Pack. This offers a wealth of information and the answers to many questions can be found there. Parents are requested to download and read the document prior to 1st August 2020.


The position has been taken that we will start the 2020 -21 season with a clean slate. Therefore, any payments outstanding for the 2019 - 20 season will be due prior to 31 July.  Any refunds due will be made via cheque on Saturday 11th July (please see below).

2020-21 Payments

Decisions regarding Match squad and Training squad positions for the U12 – U16 age groups won’t be made until we return to football in August. For those players who are returning to the programme, please recommence payments at the level you were previously paying. Therefore, the first payment (of 10) is due by standing order on 1st August 2020

Match Squad £45.00
Training Squad £20.00

Account details as follows:

Account name: Taunton Youth FC Community Trust
Account number: 15146685
Sort code: 60-05-06

Please use the follow reference: Squad-Surname-Initial for you payment.
i.e. U16-Smith-J

PLEASE DO NOT USE ''Jonny's Football' or 'TYFC Subs' as a reference for the payment as that makes it very difficult to reconcile where they came from when we receive them.

Any adjustments regarding player movement and subs due will be determined once squad selection has been actioned. 

We will be holding an open training session at The Wyvern Club, Mountfields Road, Taunton commencing 11:00 on Saturday 11 July. The session will run for 90 minutes and will give players in the U11 age group an opportunity to see if they would like to play for Taunton Youth FC U11. Selection for the match squad will be based on factors assessed on that day.  Please arrive at least 10 minutes early. A document can be downloaded here for reference.


Playing next season

You will be contacted individually between now and the 11th July to clarify your child's position in relation to remaining with the club. Profile pictures for players for JPL team registration are necessary and currently we are still missing an update for half the programme. Please email it to registration@tauntontown.com An example of what is required is shown below. 

Via email only: registration@tauntontown.com Training tops with a 'garden' background is great. Please.... no hats / sunglasses or non-Taunton kit. Otherwise please attend in training kit on Saturday 11th July.

We will have personnel at the Wyvern Club between 13:00 and 14:30 on 11 July.  A cheque will be available for collection by those who are due a refund.  The time table (based on the age groups for the 19/20 season) is as follows:

Important - We ask that 'old match' kit is returned on this day. This is applicable to anyone leaving the programme and the 2019-20 U16s, U15 Blues and U12s. If you wish to retain your kit, you can do so for a £10 donation to club funds.  All returned 'old kit' is donated to charity and is appreciated by the recipients.
