Club Executive Committee

Club History



Bredhurst Juniors Football club was founded in 1991 by a group of dads
who's football crazy 5 to 7 year olds were finding it difficult to play
organised football in the Medway area football only being available for
under 10s.

The dads organised training at Bredhurst School and friendlies with other
like-minded clubs soon followed.

These clubs such as Pegasus, Larkfield and Real60 became the founding
members ofthe Medway & Maidstone league playing small-sided football
for under 8/9.

The year of training and friendlies paid dividends as our first under 8
teams won there league comfortably and carried on these winning ways
until at under 14 they joined Lordswood in the Kent League. Every year
more boys have followed we now run teams from under 7 to under 18.

Club Colours and Logo

Our first kit was claret & blue changrng to the now familiar blue and
white. A Mr Harry Purser designed our logo using the tree from the word
Hurst and amalgamating this with some continental badges to give us the
fee with footballs on the branches

Our first Chairman and Manager of our first league team was a Mr Frank
Skinner. Frank sowed the seeds for the successful growth of Bredhurst
Juniors football club, Organising our first ever tournament in 1995 and
when Frank eventually took his team into the Kent league left the club on
a sound financial footing with the ability to grow to the size we are today.

The new committee continued the growth ofthe club and huge thanks
must go to all committee members past and present parents and players
many of who are attending over this tournament weekend. To jog there
minds we have conrpiled a list of some of our first players sorry to
anyone we have left out
