Academy opens for new season 03/09/16. After our summer break Oadby Owls academy will open once again and we extend a warm welcome back to our young players (and any new ones) for the start of the 2016/17 season.
For new children wishing to join our club, as well as existing ones, we ask all their parents to ensure they read the important notices on the home page, about children wearing appropriate and clothing and footwear and that the wearing of shin pads is mandatory. One other important point is that all parents must abide by, there is NO PARKING at Coombe Park, when either attending the Academy or any matches, and they must park at Beauchamp school car park
Oadby Owls awarded Charter Standard Community Club of the Year. At the annual FA awards ceremony on Tuesday 26th May 2015 at the King Power Stadium, Oadby Owls were honoured as the Charter Standard Community Club of the Year, by far the hardest accreditation to achieve from the FA. The Owls, who were among a number of nominated clubs, were selected by a qualified panel of the Leicestershire FA. Ian Scott received the award on behalf of the club from Sir Geoff Hurst, famous for scoring a hat trick in the World Cup Final for England when they beat West Germany 4-2 in 1966. The award is a ringing endorsement to all the volunteers who contribute so much in the running of the club with its 38 teams and playing membership of 650. Club Chairman Rob Farrar had, for the second occasion in his time with the club, been nominated as the Volunteer of the Year. A nomination itself testimony to the hard work put in by the Chairman and committee members. Well done everyone associated with Oadby Owls.
Key club dates can be found on the drop down menu of the Home page tab. The dates relate to planned events including our Presentation Night and Tournament events.
Where adverse weather conditions look like they will affect football at Coombe Park a pitch inspection will always be carried out. If a decision to cancel is made then that decision will be displayed on the clubs website. If the website does not state that football is off, it should be assumed that it is on. The club has a duty of care to its members and tries to avoid unnecessary travel. When it can be called off in advance it will be. Sometimes this decision can be made the day or even several days before but sometimes not until the day of activity. For the Academy a decision will be made by 8.30am that day and the website updated immediately so please check here first.
