The aim of the Club and my aim as its club secretary has always been to provide footballers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds with the opportunity to improve their football skills and enable them to play football in a safe and friendly environment which with the recent challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic has been difficult however as Club we have taken all the required steps and more to ensure that we kept our players, coaches and managers and spectators safe throughout and will continue to do so in the months ahead.
Since the Tigers as we are known were born in 1986 we have gone from strength to strength whilst providing football to hundreds of local children in Swanscombe and Greenhithe via our FA qualified coaches and DBS checked coaches and we currently have nearly thirty teams including our Girls, Veterans and Ability teams as well as Senior and numerous junior and youth teams with over 400 playing members as we have grown rapidly over the last 5/6 years as a result of the hard work of the Club’s committee.
All of the Clubs committee members, managers, coaches and the many others who assist teams at all levels are volunteers who give up their time free of charge to help provide football for the girls and boys of all abilities and I would like to express my sincere thanks to every one of them for their fantastic support.
The Club is run to the highest possible standards in terms of the coaching we provide and in terms of safety and child protection and we are always working on improving the club in terms of its organisation and development in order to make it one of the best and most respected clubs in Kent and beyond over the next few years.
The Club is very proud to be a long standing FA Charter Standard Community Club who are seen as an integral part of the growing and vibrant local community in Swanscombe, Greenhithe and The Ebbsfleet Garden City through its work with local charities and I and the Club's main committee are ambitious in terms of our aims for the club's development both on and off the pitch and hope that you want to be or are already part of the exciting journey that lies ahead for our football club.
