We are pleased to announce that football is returning to Victoria Park with two youth team games taking place on Sunday 3 December. Local rivals CSA 07 Youth U10 Tigers and AFC Newbury Boys and Girls U10 Red will join friendly battle, and CSA 07 Youth U10 Jaguars will take on Basildon Badgers U10.

The Deputy Mayor of Newbury, Cllr Andy Moore will be presenting commemorative medals to everyone who takes part on the day, with kick off for both games at 10:30am.  

The football pitch has had significant investment and improvements made over time and is now ready. It is marked out with two small-sided pitches to enable junior teams up to the age of 18 to book and play. We are now taking bookings for both casual and block bookings up to the end of April 2024. The pitch can also be used for youth training sessions.

We are also making provision for Samba Goals too, which are quality portable football goals to enable a flexible solution for all small, sided games. These goals can be erected and broken down easily and stored away after each game or training session.

Cllr Vaughan Miller, Chair of the Town Council’s Community Services Committee, responsible for bringing the pitch back into play, will be attending the event on Sunday too.                                

Cllr Miller said,  “We are so pleased to have been able to get the pitch ready this season.

There is a shortage of junior pitches in Newbury and with Victoria Park ‘back in the game’ we are confident that teams will want to use this centrally located facility”.                                

We are delighted to say we are now taking bookings and would urge any teams who are interested in playing to contact our Community Services Team on 01635 35486 or email towncouncil@newbury.gov.uk.

Newbury Town Council also provide football pitches at City Recreation Ground and Wash Common Recreation Ground, both of which are hugely popular and used for both junior and adult games regularly at weekends.
