CCUFC is a ‘community’ football club which has been going since 1992. The people who run it are players’ parents and other people who are willing to volunteer their time for a great cause that gives so much fun to so many youngsters.
There are lots of other football clubs in the Epsom area but none of them are a community club quite like CCUFC. Few have been going for nearly 30 years. The key reason CCUFC has survived so long is that parents are willing to get involved, put in some effort to share the load, and create an opportunity for their kids to play football and learn how to become better footballers. If we ever get to the stage where too many parents can’t be bothered to lend a hand and just see the Club as an inexpensive baby-sitting service, it will not be able to continue.
In September it looked like we were reaching the end of the road. Happily, thanks to several parent coaches stepping forward to take on the responsibility of age-group leadership, we are now in good shape. It has also been great to see so many parents volunteering as ‘Covid stewards’ to ensure our anti-Covid measures (social distancing, hygiene, etc) are observed.
