Lancaster Giants is an FA affiliated Chartered Standard Club set up to provide young budding footballers with the opportunity to be coached and play football in a friendly and safe environment. The football club is run as a non-profit making organisation, all the club officials are volunteers helping us run the club with a great community spirit.
Lancaster Giants was set up over 10 years ago to provide training and support to children in the South Lancaster area. It became apparent that there was not enough clubs to support the baby boom of the 1999/2000. As a new club, we utilised the FA's advice and support and within a year received our first charted standard mark.
We were the 4th club in the area to receive this. Since then the club has undergone the 3 year review and received its charted standard mark again.
All the members of the club come from within the parents of the children involved in the club. However recently we have also received help in the form of PE students or teacher trainers from University of Cumbria or Lancaster University.
