Football

It is rumoured that the Phoenix Sports and Social club began life in the early years of the last century as a football pitch and a wooden hut.

In the intervening years not only has the Sports and Social club developed and grown but so has the football section.

From the early games between a group of guys playing works inter-departmental games the section now runs a set up that covers ages from under 10’s through to a Vets team in which players aged 50+ regularly complete.

With 4 full sized pitches and a host of junior pitches laid out across 2 fields the Phoenix has what is probably the most comprehensive array of pitches in the area, all of which are maintained to a standard that arguably means the club can boast some the best playing conditions in the area.

The forth coming season will see Phoenix fielding three adult sides and two junior sides. Of the adult section two of the teams play on a Saturday afternoon with the first team competing for the sixth season in the Central Midlands League at step seven on the Football Association pyramid. The second Saturday team competes in the Wragg Over 35’s league and has done so for almost twenty years now.

On a Sunday morning football at the Phoenix will consist of an adult side competing in the Sheffield Super Blades Draw league. This will be a new venture for us, for the previous 2 seasons our side has played in the Sheffield Imperial League but next season sees a change of management and a new direction for the team.

Playing also on a Sunday morning will be the Under 18’s, a team that has been with the section for more than five years  and completing the section will be a new team starting out and playing in the under 10’s league.

As well as new players for all our teams the section in keen to promote football across the whole spectrum and are willing and eager to expand, anybody looking to become involved in local football are welcome to come along and join in, for details please contact the Phoenix Office on 01709 363788 or visit the football section website at  http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/phoenixfc.
