Thorpe St Andrew FC, recently established in Summer 2020, is a grass roots football club based in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich and takes great pride in its reputation as a friendly community-based football club and values the relationship that it has with its volunteers, players, sponsors and supporters. It is derived from three clubs – St Andrews FC, originally founded in 1954, Hillside Rovers FC, originally founded in 1983 and Thorpe United Ladies and Girls FC, originally founded in 2008.

Training and Matches
All players are expected to attend weekly training sessions; the days and times vary depending on the age group, the duration of the sessions last between 1 – 2 hours. During the summer months when the nights are lighter we tend to train at our home ground, Thorpe Recreation Ground. During the winter the location of training may. The club is part of the Norfolk Women’s and Girl’s Football League. Matches for the girl’s age group 16 and under are usually played on Saturday mornings, and the ladies play on a Sunday afternoon, usually a 2pm kick off. Our home games are played at Thorpe Recreation Ground. Once the season has finished teams have the chance to participate in tournaments and friendlies arranged by the team manager.

Football kits
For all age groups of the club, players are required to wear team football strips. The strip is in the club colours of Pink and Black. Team kits are replaced approximately every 2 years. The football strip includes shirt, shorts and socks. Some teams also have tracksuits; this depends on sponsorships and/or individual costs. All kits remain the property of Thorpe St Andrew FC, and are to be handed back if you choose to leave the club. If the kit is not returned after 7 days of leaving the club you are responsible of the cost of the kit. Shin Pads and Football boots must be supplied by the parents/individual for match days and training, these are not the responsibility of the club.

Fundraising is a key part of the club to allow us to continue financially. Throughout the season we have a number of fundraising events to raise money for the club. We are always keen to hear of new fundraising ideas which do not have to be football related.

Annual General Meeting
Every year at the end of the season we hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM), this is usually held in June. We encourage all parents to attend as we are always looking for parents to get involved. During the meeting the committee stands down and re – elections take place; we also discuss future events and any matters arising within the club. New ideas are gratefully received.
