At Pendle Sportswear, we know how much passion there is for junior football. We aim to make it as easy as possible for all Managers of Junior Football Clubs. This prevents them from becoming tired and frustrated with the long and drawn-out process. A junior football manager can then use all their energy and passion to drive their Clubs forward.

A Junior Football Manager’s Responsibilities

A typical scenario for a junior football manager may go as follows:-

You train every Wednesday and find that most players are available for the weekend game, but a select few still have to let you know. You compose your text or call on Thursday asking everyone to confirm their availability. Most will reply, but typically, some won’t. So, you have to chase several up with follow up phone calls.

All of a sudden it’s Friday evening and you realise that you are 2 players short! More phone calls, more texts and eventually you have a team.

It’s the day of the game but the issues don’t stop:

  • have we got enough cars for transport?
  • have we got the correct kit?
  • have we arranged the referee?

Then there are the post-match responsibilities:

  • dealing with parents when children aren’t picked up
  • sandwiches and drinks after the game
  • the match report
  • calling your results into the league

Oh, and then there’s the added responsibility and complications surrounding adults looking after groups of children.

Make Things Easier

I am sure I’ll have missed many more things, but we get it. Being a junior football manager is quite challenging. So, the last thing you want to think about is going through the long and drawn-out process of sourcing and ordering football kit.
