The lifeblood of any sport is at its grassroots level. World class footballers often begin their careers at grassroots football clubs like Garforth Villa FC. Football is one of the most popular sports in the country with both men and women participating in the sport.
Football is a fantastic way to meet people and make new friends, whilst keeping fit and building confidence at the same time. Children will often make friends for life through football. Many friendships that last for life are forged out there on the football pitch. There is an enormous social benefit for children getting involved and playing football.
