Curley Park Rangers formed at the start of the 1972/73
season with a single U12 team. 40 years on and the club has
over 35 teams, providing football for 500 players fromU5
through to seniors. The club has over 70 qualified coaches.
With an inclusive club philosophy which simply states
‘football for all’, the club’s humble aim is to provide an outlet
for local children to play football. The growth in number
of teams and players has been largely due to the positive
effects of word of mouth and the club philosophy.
