Shinfield Rangers Football Club is one of Berkshire’s oldest established children’s football clubs, set up in 1972. It is one of the best football clubs in Berkshire and, as a Charter Standard Community Club,at the pinnacle of grassroots football.
We pride ourselves on providing a safe, fun and educational environment for all ages from 4 years old through to adult football.
Our club ethos is simple – we want all children that join the club to have a great time during football training, during competitive matches and at other social events we put on throughout the year at our Millworth Lane headquarters. We don’t believe in the ‘win at all costs’ philosophy – although winning is fun – we want to promote the concepts of discipline, team-work and learning. If we pass on these three ideas successfully – the winning comes naturally. We’re also keen to help the children to develop firm friendships with their peers who they might not necessarily see at school every day – this is crucial to a child’s social development.
We’re also proud to have both boys and girls teams and also mixed teams, depending on age group.
Shinfield Rangers FC has, for several years, has been selected by Reading FC to be an affiliated Academy Partner Club, where we work closely with professional football coaches to help develop the children’s skills further. We became pioneers of the FA’s coach mentoring scheme in 2014-15, an honour given only to the top 6 clubs in Berkshire.
All our coaches are FA certified, are fully trained in first aid and safeguarding children, and all have a great relationship with the children in their squads.
We’re also keen to involve parents wherever possible and encourage involvement in the club’s activities and helping the teams throughout the year.
