Waterford Schoolboys Football League

Stradbally Athletic Football Club

History:

Stradbally A.F.C was set up in 1968 and is the adult club of the area. Strad Bally Faha Schoolboy Football Club was set up in 1997 to cater for the young of the area. This club was named Strad Bally Faha to appeal to all in the areas of Stradbally, Ballylaneen and Faha.

The object of the club is to promote, foster and develop the game of soccer in the general Stradbally area and to give the young an outlet over the winter months as well as other seasons.
The underage club Strad Bally Faha S.F.C. is affliated to the Waterford Schooboy league. Our under-11 and under-13 teams play in this league while our under-9 team plays challenges against local teams such as Seaview Celtic, Ballinroad, Ballyduff, Abbeyside etc.

Matches are usually every second Saturday while training takes place every second Saturday when matches are not on. Therefore there is soccer available every Saturday (bar Christmas day this year) from late July until the end of May. This club was set up in 1997 when we entered an under-11 team. In 1998 we had two teams, under-10 and under-12. In 1999 we have three teams, under-9, under-11 and under-13. Within a few years we want to have a team at every second age group therefore catering for everyone, u-9, u-11, u-13, u-15, u-17. After under-17 there is adult level.

At the moment we have three of the five age groups catered for while the adult club will take over seventeen-year-olds.
We are based at Knockrour just above Ballyvooney for the past eleven years. The field is quite hilly but has great drainage, which is probably helped by the slope. Our dressing room is a port-a-cabin, which we purchased from Lousiana Pacific in Waterford three years ago. We have paid rent on this land for the last eleven years and rent on other lands for the previous twenty years before that.

We have begun constructing our new sporting facility. When completed it will include two playing pitches, an all weather grit pitch, dressing rooms with showers and a meeting room. We are hopeful that the playing pitches will be completed in 2004.
