Football clubs near you who will welcome your son or daughter with open arms

Here's where they are, when they train and how to contact them



As an unforgettable summer comes to a close, Wales is brimming with eager young footballers and excited new clubs with spaces to fill.

Now it’s time to join them all together as we bid to find the next Gareth Bale and make new memories for Welsh football.

For weeks, we’ve been inundated on our social media channels with parents looking for clubs for their children who have fallen in love with football this summer and newly formed teams who need to find the last few players to help them kick-off the new season with a bang.

If your child is desperate to get out and play football, make contact with one of these clubs, or if there’s not one in your area, please contact us and we will help.

Of course, there might be a club closer to you who are seeking players but just haven’t told us. If so, take your child there.

And finally, if you run a team and want us to help you find new players, here’s where you can contact us.
