Club News and Events
Welcome to Welwyn Pegasus FC
Welcome to the Welwyn Pegasus Football Club website, I hope you find our site informative, this site aims to provide players, parents, managers, coaches and visitors with a detailed happening in and around the football club.
The club was formed in 1970, and currently boasts over 450 players ageing from 5 - 17 years old. We see ourselves as an integral part of the community with an aim to providing the opportunity for players with a broad range of ability to play and enjoy the game of football and to encourage the development of skills and team spirit.
We are known as a friendly, well supported club, with a reputation for fair play and we sincerely hope you see this through your contact with the Club. We aim to keep to these principles and not become a `win at all costs` type of club.
In 2003 we embarked on a grand plan to restructure and take the club forward, enlarging the comittee, getting more parents involved, training coaches etc. The result of this was that in 2004 we had grown in stature from a small sleepy club to receiving the prestigous FA Charter Standard Development Club Award, making us one of a handful of youth football clubs to recive this accolade in Hertfordshire.
Community Charter Club Award
In the summer of 2010 Welwyn Pegasus FC was awarded Community Club status. This fantastic news endorsed the plans and development ideas that the club have been building for many years. This accreditation is welcome news not just for the club but also for the entire community as it will help all football players (current and future) in the area and from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities.
The FA Community Club scheme builds upon the foundations of the Charter Standard scheme in placing clubs at the heart of their community.
Community status is deemed the pinnacle of the club development pathway and requires a club to have a high quality, multi-team (minimum of 10 teams) set up with excellent social, training and playing opportunities for all. As such, the number of Community Clubs is one of the truest measures of success for The FA Football Development strategy, today there are just 7 across Hertfordshire.
All new FA Community Clubs are required to meet rigorous new FA criteria, ensuring they provide opportunities for players irrespective of age, gender, religion and ability. Clubs must also provide qualified coaches, first aiders and child protection officers.
The club are delighted to receive this new recognition and promise to build upon the platform already established for many years to come.
