Jubilee Football Club

Footy and Friendship



Jubilee Football Club is an 11-a-side football team that represents Jubilee Church Teesside.

We use football as a platform to share the good news of Jesus to those who join us for a game. We have been established since 2009 and we compete in the North East Christian Fellowship League (NECFL).

We aim to provide a footballing community which involves men playing in a competitive but fair manner. 

We strive to support and encourage each other on and off the football field.

How Jubilee FC runs

  • Training sessions every Wednesday night at 7:30pm to 9pm on the floodlit astro turf at the Kings Academy School in Coulby Newham. We work on football drills, fitness exercises and have a game amongst ourselves at the end.
  • We play our home matches on the grass field at Kings Academy School in Coulby Newham. Kick Off is 10:30. We have a team talk and warm up before the match. Shirts, shorts, and socks are provided.
  • Once a month, we run team meetings, where the team can discuss tactics, progress and management can share their thoughts with the players. We run these on the first Wednesday of every month, 6:30pm at The Kings Academy.
  • We run socials for the lads to attend and provide opportunities for them to get to know each other and bond. Socials we run include BBQ’s, Bowling and Evening Meals etc.



The Management of Jubilee FC consists of:

  • Manager - Rob Earl
  • Assistant Manager - Steve Cooke
  • Treasurer - John Kearney 
  • Coach - Darren McPhillips
  • Secretary - Allan Earl

The management of Jubilee FC is accountable to the elders of Jubilee Church Teesside and the committee of the NECFL.

In 2008 Allan Earl and his son Robert, set up this football team to reach out to men in the Teesside area to achieve the following things:

  • Use football as a platform to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to men in Teesside
  • To give the guys in a team an opportunity to be part of engaging in a productive activity.
  • Improve the health and well of the players through the involvement of regular exercise.
  • For the guys who play for the team to become a family.
  • To bring Christian and Non-Christian men into community with one another.
  • To pastorally care for the lads who play for the team and their families.

We formed officially and joined the NECFL in September 2009. Since then we have competed in the NECFL and have ran regular training sessions in the Teesside area.



Jubilee FC competes in the North East Christian Fellowship League. This league is made up of teams that represent churches from around the North East of England with the football played to a competitive but fair standard.

“I have always enjoyed playing football. Being part of a church with a football team has been an amazing opportunity for me to take part in a sport I love, as well as meeting and forming friendships with people in the community from different backgrounds. The team has a great atmosphere and brings people young and old together”
