Whole club communication will continue to come from BNUJFC directly.

Get Involved!

If you are keen to help with your child's team on Saturdays by taking the whistle please email the club and we can arrange for the Introductory Referee Course.

And for everyone, please remember to respect the referees' decision.

Social Media - Consent

BNUJFC is keen to share photos or videos of players and team games on our social media channels over the period of the season - it's both a great way to show the fun that the players are having together with promoting the club across the community.

Your Team Manager or Coach will be providing you with a consent form for this purpose and if you're happy to do so, please complete this - any queries please contact us via email.

If you have any further questions please check out the FAQ on our website, speak to your Team Coach/Manager or contact us via email.
