Adult Football

Adult Football

Battle Town FC is a popular place to play football thanks to the all-inclusive and friendly attitude that we promote. All players are welcomed.

The adult section of BTFC has grown and developed over two decades and attracts a large number of players who enjoy playing in the safe and friendly environment that the Club seeks to nurture. BTFC enjoys a strong reputation within the Footballing community. Players are expected to sign up and adhere to our Code of Conduct, which is based on the FA’s RESPECT guidelines.

We organise 3 all-age men’s teams. Battle Town 1st team have gained promotion to the Premier Division of the Mid Sussex Football League, whilst the Reserve and Development teams play more locally in the East Sussex Football League.

Adult Team home games are played on Saturday afternoons, at Bexhill College (1st team) and at Battle Recreation Ground TN33 0HB (Reserves and Development sides). Full details of our home games are advertised weekly on our Facebook page .

We welcome spectators to our home games. There is wheel chair access to the top bank at Battle Rec, which provides good viewpoints.

CLUB TRAINING NIGHT IS WEDNESDAY, when players of all abilities are invited to take part in coached sessions and small sided games, designed to develop & improve playing ability and to have fun. The venue is the Claverham 3G all-weather pitch at Battle Area Sports Centre. Further Training Sessions are organised specifically for Advanced Players on a different evening.

The FA encourages Clubs to make available to all players aged under 18, & their parents, information about how the Club & its teams are run, who is responsible for what etc. This is set out in the FA document “Providing a Positive Welcome to your club”, which includes a club Check List of “Who we are & what we do”. All of this information for BTFC is in our Welcome & Registration leaflets for the Adult Teams & for the Youth Team. We also plan to provide information at meetings with players & their parents.

All the Safeguarding support for 16 & 17 year olds in adult teams can be found on the Youth Respect & Safeguarding & Youth in Adult Team pages of this Club website. This includes the link to the Complete FA Safeguarding downloads directory, which sets out DBS checks, Safeguarding Training, Child Safeguarding policy, Reporting Safeguarding concerns, Anti-bullying policy, Social Media policy, Ratio of Coaches to players, Managing Additional needs, Equality policy & Whistleblowing policy.
