If players are keen to continue working on their football skills in the off season, Futsal will be available again at the ASB Sports Centre on Sundays in Term 4. The club is not involved in these teams so a parent needs to coordinate entry. However, the club is happy to provide the playing shirts.

Information on this should be going onto the Capital Football website soon.

Treasurer Role

Do you love numbers as well as football? After four years of doing the number crunching for us, our current Treasurer is retiring from the committee at the end of the season. Julie’s son’s time with BNUJFC is drawing to an end so it’s time for her to hand over the Treasury reins. The role is ideal for someone with working accounts knowledge, so if you are keen to join our fun, enthusiastic, committee, please get in touch with Sam Bridgman our Chair, or email us at

Experience in Comms?

The committee will also be looking for someone to look after the clubs communication next year. Sound like you? Get in touch with Sam Bridgman our Chair, or email us at

If you don’t love numbers or comms doesn’t sound like you, but you do love football then please also consider joining the committee next year! Just let us know and we can provide more information.
