Boost for youth football as city clubs merge

After a combined 17 years successfully developing youth football, two of Worcester’s most prestigious clubs are merging to create a new club – AFC Worcester Olympic.

In the new structure, Warndon Villages FC (WVFC) will continue to develop youth football at all ages but its elite Saturday teams for 2011/12 will merge with Worcester City Youth Development Football Club (WCYFDC).

WCYFDC will run Saturday football for boys from U12 upwards in the Midland Junior Premier League under the new name of AFC Worcester Olympic.

Going forward, the new club will be formally underpinned by the children and coaches of WVFC both in developing youngsters via mini soccer and running parallel teams on a Sunday at all of the same age groups.

Formed in 2001, WVFC run more than 20 boys and girls teams from ages four to 18 and were the first club in the city to be awarded FA Charter Standard Community Club status.

For the past seven years, WCYFDC have operated under the badge of Worcester City FC and they have just achieved Charter Standard. In 2010, they fielded six teams in the Midland Junior Premier League and some players have been signed by professional club academies including Aston Villa, Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion.

With a new youth structure in place at St George’s Lane, officials at WCYFDC needed a new identity and change of direction.

Brian Nyatanga, AFC Worcester Olympic chairman, said: “This is a perfect match in terms of our philosophy for youth football. This merger is supported by parents, coaches, managers and the Worcestershire FA, who have given us the green light to push ahead for Charter Standard Development Club status.”

WVFC chairman Andy White added: “When we met WCYFDC officials, we realised the close similarity in approaches and values as well as the complementary fit of the elite teams. Creating something better than the two parts seemed an obvious move. WVFC will probably field 25 teams next year excluding the planned elite ones.”

Trial dates for the new U12, U13 and U14 sides are planned for May 14 and 21 at Little Perdiswell. All other age groups will be holding their trials at Bilford Road in Worcester. The U15 age group is holding open training sessions on Monday nights from 6.30pm to 8pm and U16 trial dates are June 11, 18 and 25 from 10.30am to 12.30pm. U17 and U18 dates are to be confirmed.
