Since its formation in 1998, Bradley Stoke United FC (BSUFC) has provided football for both boys and girls in the Five Stokes area.
Bradley Stoke United prides itself with having players of all abilities.
Our 17th season has been good, with our Under-15s, Under-13s and Under-11s all looking for promotion. Our Under-12s currently stand second in Division 1. Our younger age groups also continue to impress, with the Under-10s and Under-8s both playing great football.
The club is fortunate to have excellent support from the local business community. This season, Volker Fitzpatrick and AJ Homes are providing much appreciated sponsorship for both our Under-15 teams and our Under-13s.
The 2014/2015 season has also seen the club have its first ever Under-18s team, forming a new partnership with Hambrook FC, which gives our youth players a route into adult football. This has been so successful that next season will see us running two Under-18 teams.
BSUFC will once again be holding its Football Fundays from June onwards. The sessions, held at Patchway Sports Centre on a Saturday morning, have proved hugely successful. These fun and structured sessions, held by our own FA Level 1 coaches, are aimed at providing boys and girls with a fun footballing experience, giving an opportunity to learn skills and meet new friends. The age groups these sessions are open to are under-10s, under-9s, under-8s, under-7s and under-6s. There will also be a Tigers session for under-5s.
If you have a child who wants to play football or you yourself would like to get involved in coaching, there are many opportunities within our friendly club. Just visit our website www.bsufc.co.uk and hit the ‘contact us’ button.
