IBIS Junior Football Club is looking for players to join theiclub ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The Kendal-based charity club is inviting new players from school year 1 to join the club's new Under 7 Team, while they are also keen to recruit for the Under 11, Under 12 and Under 13 age categories.

Ibis, who offer children between the ages of 6-16 the opportunity to play football, were initially founded in the late 1950s.

The club, which continues to grow, now has up to 20 teams from Under 8 to Under 16. In 2003 Ibis achieved the Charter Standard Club Award and it continues to follow good practice in child protection and procedures.

Ibis are also affiliated with The Westmorland FA, while all junior teams play their games at the Jubilee or Millennium Playing Fields in Kendal.

Off the pitch, the club is seeking to recruit a new treasurer. This voluntary role would require between one-two hours a month commitment, as well as regular attendance at the monthly meetings.

Ibis rely solely on donations, sponsorship, subscription fees and gift aid,to operate. Anyone who wishes to sponsor a new team kit should get in touch.

As well as the football the club have also got a sports and social club on Mintsfeet Road.

Ibis try to instil a sense of responsibility and awareness into the players, which is done through fund-raising activities, litter picking around the club or supporting cancer charities to raise funds and awareness.

Ibis are a caring and friendly club, where all are welcome to join and take part as they continue to build ahead of the 2019-20 season.
