We would like to invite all children to further their football enjoyment & development by being a part of Milnrow Juniors - A FA Charter Standard Club, proud to include 30 teams, consisting of boys & girls as well as additional "First Kicks (4-6 yrs old)" social training, goalkeeper & 1-1 specific training provisions.
Uniquely among all others, we are proud to be officially partnered with our local professional club, Rochdale AFC - providing children of all ability levels with the very best pathway.
As a member of our club, your child will have a unique opportunity to experience the very best introduction into football that a child could wish for.
Milnrow Juniors was born on 6th September 2014. Excited children, coaches, parents & relatives all came together in a safe & welcoming environment to celebrate children playing football. The fact that the vast majority of "our kids" were taking their very first football steps made the occasion that much more special.
The FA acknowledged our achievement by awarding us Charter Standard Club status on 16th October 2014 - The FA’s highest accreditation for Club teams. In 2017 we were among the shortlist for "Grassroots Club of the Year" - A huge achievement in a short space of time.
We are not be influenced by results in the early years. We will win some and lose some, but our single aim is to instill and develop a love for the game throughout all "our" children.
We have an excellent team of people, ranging from Junior Coaches to Adult Coaches with lots of experience among all areas of football, current/ex-pros, Team Co-ordinators, Team Admins, Sponsors, & people who are willing to generally help in any way that they can.
Our collective aim is put in place the framework for a child to follow their dreams, whatever they may be. In doing so, we hope to play a part in helping to create a generation of footballers who play with creativity and without fear, who solve their own problems on the pitch, and who enjoy the game. Footballers who play to win, instead of losing through fear.
How Can My Child Get Involved?
First and foremost, Milnrow Juniors is a place where any child can play football, regardless of ability or past experience.

The teams will play in The North Bury League (Sat AM kick offs) or Heywood Sports Village League (Sun AM kick offs) Demand is expected to be high and places are limited, so please register your child’s interest as soon as possible.
