Boothstown Football Club

Contact Information:


Boothstown is a former coal-mining and cotton village, about 10 miles west of the centre of Manchester. The village is located between Worsley and Tyldesley and is bounded by the Bridgewater Canal and open land to the south and the East Lancashire Road (A580) to the north. As a village Boothstown has expanded rapidly in the last 30 years, but has retained its identity as it has been absorbed into the surrounding suburban area.
BFC is an FA Charter Standard Development Club catering for the growing population of children and young people locally. The Club has around 400 registered players, aged from under-7 to under-18, an Academy for children under 6 years of age and also an open age ladies team. All of the Club Members are drawn from Boothstown itself and the surrounding localities.
A relatively young football club BFC was only established in 1995, but is already well respected amongst football clubs in the area with teams playing in leagues in the Salford, Bolton, Bury and South Manchester areas.
BFC is run entirely on by volunteers and all funds raised are used within the club to develop opportunities for young players in the area.
Each the Club's teams have at least two coaches who are qualified to at a minimum of FA Level 1 Standard, each of them have also attained FA qualifications in First Aid and Child Protection.
The Club aims to provide a positive and healthy outlet for the energies of children and young people in the area. With the support of the community, the players and their families, the Club will hopefully continue to develop and to the benefit of the whole of the village.
