On 27 May all club members were invited to meet Premiership player George Friend, who plays for Middlesborough FC, when he visited the ground and offered insight and inspiration to our players.

George answered questions from players, coaches and parents and generously gifted a signed shirt to the Club.


If you haven’t seen them already, there are more photos and videos of the evening are on the South Molton Football Club – Juniors Facebook Page and the videos are also on our new South Molton Junior Football Club You Tube Channel (where you can also see some videos of the U11’s playing Torridgeside U11’s).

The visit was also picked up by the North Devon Journal and the club featured in a double page spread! Thanks to Matt Parkhouse (one of our coaches) for organising George’s visit.
