Nova Warriors are one of two Under 8 Nova United Junior Football Club teams that were formed at the beginning of the 2015 season from the children who previously trained on Saturday mornings as Under 7s.
As one can imagine, the resulting camaraderie and competitiveness amongst both the Under 8 teams and the parents is keen which makes training and match days great fun for all concerned.
We have a brilliant group of parents who are not only sociable but also fully involved with ensuring the Warriors enjoy their football to the full – just ask how many of the team are up, dressed and ready for action when normally we are trying to cajole them from bed to prepare for school!
Nova Warriors really do reflect the community spirit engendered by the Nova United Junior Football Club family and we welcome any new footballers who are in School Year 3 to come and train with us at Shuker on most Saturdays throughout the year.
Our eligible, registered footballers play every Sunday in the Telford Junior League and are coached by the ebullient Tim Shepherd and his erstwhile assistants Tom Abbott and Stu Morrey. The League has a five-a-side format usually on outdoor mini football pitches but with an indoor Futsal League from January to March.
Next season the Warriors will be becoming a seven-a-side team to play as Under 9s. This will increase opportunity for our footballers so come along and make the weekend even more rewarding!
