Taunton Youth FC Community Trust Offers the opportunity for talented grass roots players to play more advanced football from U11 to U16 completing a pathway from U5 to U18 with the potential to play non-league football. Details are here: Player Pathway
The trust is a not for profit organisation. We will keep revenue under constant review, and if at any point in the future we build a surplus this will be reinvested in the programme or used to lower the fees again. As a charity, our annual accounts have to be published meaning that there will always be transparency.
Taunton Youth Players play in the Junior Premier League (JPL). The Junior Premier League is a player development focused league, driving innovation and ensuring every player has a premier experience. The League is designed to provide competitive opportunities for development and advancement in youth football.
2022 – 23 SEASON
Pre-season training to start w/c Monday 15th August – anticipate the first JPL fixtures Saturday 10th September.

Easter: Monday 3rd April – Monday 10th April inclusive. Recommencement Tuesday 11th April.
The programme runs from mid- August to mid- May and as a Community Trust we endeavour to make payments easier for parents by splitting them over a 10 month period. A no-notice grace period is offered up to 30th September where only fees for two months will be due. However post this date, two months notice and fees are required to be paid unless there are special circumstances.
Playing in the JPL does require commitment, playing on Saturday mornings can involve travel down to Torquay or to Cheltenham, Bristol and Bath. If you think your child would like to compete at an advanced level, during pre-season they are welcome to come to training to see if it is something they would like.
