Nearer the start of the Season
Brinklow FC is a football club on the outskirts of Coventry, with approximately 250 members ranging from age 4 to Senior teams. The club was founded in 1913, and periodically re-born under different names. The Club as we now know it was started by a group of lads who wanted to put together a team for Saturday morning matches. Most of the lads worked at the same local company, and the owners of the company helped them get set up by financing the start-up costs. Brinklow village itself is situated on the “Fosse way” in the rolling countryside of Warwickshire in-between Coventry and Rugby. This location enables the club to provide a central location to attract players from the surrounding villages and also the main towns. The club has grown since it's inception and now has teams playing in most age groups. It is the clubs philosophy to provide a fun and social club aside from the football & believes that football is a great forum to teach the local children not only balls skills, but also all the other aspects such as discipline and fair play. All of the officials and helpers are volunteers and give a tremendous amount of their time teaching the kids how to play football. All our coaches are now FA qualified level 1 or level 2 coaches. Following on from the 2006 success in gaining the FA Charter Standard award, Brinklow FC has continued its development programme with confirmation from the FA that we have been awarded the prestigious FA Charter Standard Development status.
