Founded in May 2009, Breightmet Wanderers AFC has been formed to give the kids of Breightmet some community spirit. Being a club focused on family, we run teams from our delightful Tweenies all the way up to Under 17's - as well as a superb Men's 5-a-side team - and the focus is always on playing with a smile, enjoying the family-spirit and learning how to play the beautiful game the right way...

We are always on the look-out for new players and volunteers so why not come down and join us? Girls Teams are the next thing we have planned so we would especially welcome any girls that want to become involved in a great sport.
All our coaches are CRB checked and the child protection ethos runs through everything we do. Being affiliated to the Lancashire FA, we guarantee that we run this club as professionally as any football club can be. We were awarded our FA Charter Standard Status on the pitch of the Reebok Stadium in April 2011 and this is further evidence of the developments being made.
Training takes place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5pm - 7pm at the superb 4G facility at Bolton St Catherine's Academy on Newby Road in Breightmet - with this also being used as our home pitch for several of our older squads. There is a fee of £4.00 per week and all this goes towards creating a self-sufficient football club giving something back to the local community. When the players sign on to enable them to play league games, there is also a £5.00 signing on fee - but this includes all the other benefits of being a Wanderer!
All our coaching staff possess their FA Coaching badges and we can assure all parents that their children will be coached the right way for all their future footballing careers. Our Head Coach is FA Level 2 qualified and all our coaches aspire to enhancing their skills to provide first-class football for all our players. With our older players also being encouraged to obtain their coaching qualifications alongside several that have completed their Referee's course, we are always looking to develop our members and draw them deeper into loving our beautiful game...
With a designated Events Co-ordinator, Breightmet Wanderers AFC are more than just a football club. Nights out, trips away for the teams and loads of fund-raising events will ensure that all concerned join in with the togetherness we are promoting throughout the club.
