Lancon Junior Football Club was founded in August 1995, with the aim to provide football for young people in the area and to try and divert them away from anti-social behaviour and to provide quality training in a safe environment where young people can develop to the best of their ability.
Lancon was established in partnership the Lancashire Constabulary, a relationship which we are all rightly proud and which has grown ever stronger over the years.
The Club’s home games are played at the excellent facilities at Police Headquarters in Hutton, near Preston, and we are grateful for the continued support of Constabulary.
Beyond the use of the Police HQ facilities, the links with the police are many – our President is Deputy Chief Constable Chris Weigh; other Chief Officers take an active interest in the progress of the Club; members of the Committee and many coaches and parents, guardians and friends are serving officers and staff from across Lancashire Constabulary.
The Club is also proud that we have the honour of having Mark Lawrenson as our Honorary President.
As for the future, having attained FA Charter Standard, we continue to look for opportunities to improve and provide the best opportunities for youngsters, ensuring that we are accessible and affordable (we pride ourselves on keeping costs to a minimum). We are now able to provide coaching for children from 5 to 16 and if you wish your son or daughter to get involved, please contact our secretary or any of the managers / committee members.
