Announcement: New committee, New managers and a New vision

Our Mission & Vision

Our first and thoughmost mission is to be a club for locals around Tedburn to join and feel welcomed. 
As a committee we have the mission to keep the club running year or year but with a vision of improving the club all round from the Clubhouse, pitches to players within and seeing what we can achieve together, 

Philosophy & Style of Play

Tedburn has always been a club of playing football the right way, trying to get the ball down, play out from the back and playing the passing game. 

We want to stay like this and hopefully build on it with whoever joins the club.
