Good Luck for the 2017/18 Season
Good luck to all of our teams for the coming season. This season sees WLD JFC field teams at all age levels through to U15 for the first time, a great success for all involved at the club. Please remember it is only a game and that match days and training are for the the children to enjoy, learn and meet new friends. Without referee’s and volunteer assistant referees we don’t have a game so also respect the officials (even if they do get it wrong!)
Catch up with Mark Flood, Club Chairman, on his thoughts for the season gone, the season coming, and all things WLD! <read more>

Online FA CRC checks
Clubs can now register to complete FA CRC checks using an online system. This is a quicker and cheaper way of completing FA CRC checks.
