Amersham Town FC & Kings Church Amersham FC: Working In Partnership
Kings Church Amersham FC are delighted to be in partnership with Amersham Town FC and have some exciting plans in the pipeline.
Kings Church Amersham Football Club (“KCA F.C.”) was set up in 1999 by the then Minister of Kings Church Amersham who wanted to give local children who attended church on Sunday mornings an opportunity to play in a Saturday football league which did not conflict with Sunday worship.
In 2020, we were awarded FA Charter Standard Accreditation, prioritising qualified coaching and safeguarding as well as the values of The FA's Respect campaign.
KCA F.C. brings football to the community for children aged 4 to 18 years old. Based across 3 sites in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, our training and matches take place on Saturdays from September to May each season. Having begun with one team at Under 10 level, the football club has grown considerably and is now running 17 squads involving over 250 children. All KCA F.C. teams from under 7s to under 18s compete in the Chiltern Church Junior Football League in league and cup competitions. For children under the age 6 we run a feeder group where the children have training sessions every Saturday throughout the season.
KCA F.C. is run by a committee who endeavour to work towards the running of an efficient club and whose aim is to provide football that can be enjoyed by all players, parents, coaches and supporters. Each of our head coaches is qualified to at least FA level 1 standard ensuring that we offer constructive and efficient training for all our players. All of our coaches and committee members are required to have a current DBS and to attend the FA’s Safeguarding Children course. Our coaches also attend the FA Emergency Aid course.
We see KCA F.C. as playing a valuable role in the local community by providing a professional, friendly club for boys and girls in the area, who can both learn to develop their football skills and enjoy playing in various League and Cup competitions.
