Cub Football ‘ Move Over Manchester City…..9th Ormskirk Cubs Football Team are here !! ‘

I am pleased to report that the cubs have been training hard ahead of the District 5a-side
competitions which are due to take place in February. We now have a total of 15
boys who regularly attend both training or league fixture games each Saturday

We first introduced the football training mornings, which are held at Edge Hill University, in
October and it is great to see the boys developing their game and having so
much fun at the same time.

Before the Christmas holidays we held some ‘Festive Football’ and some ‘Christmas Challenges’ as
part of the training which was such a laugh. Various Christmas related football
games were set up which included hanging large Baubles by tinsel to the goal
post and each of the players trying to kick them off. The Festive Football
ended with the Dads joining in for a quick kick around too……although it had
to be said that the boys outpaced and out-skilled the Dad’s by miles !!

I wanted to say a big thank you to the parents who have turned up, watched and supported the team
each weekend,

Neil and I really appreciate your commitment each weekend.

And so as we lead up to competitions, one last thing to say ‘ Move Over Manchester City…..9th Ormskirk Cubs Football Team are here !! ‘

Beaver Scouts (or Beavers) are the youngest section of the Scout Association, taking children aged 6 to 8.
Beaver Scouts start to learn about the world around them through a mixture of games and activities.
Beaver Scouts meet in “Colonies”, usually about once a week for their fun activities.


The Cubs form the second section of the Scout Association, and meet in a “Pack” under a Cub Scout Leader or “Akela”.
Cub Scouts get to try a lot of fun and adventurous things during their time with the Pack. They will get the chance to gain awards and badges for the things they do.


Scouting is for boys and girls aged between 10 and 14 years, who want to make friends and
develop their widening interests in ways that are both educational and fun.┬áMany Troops have one day activities which could include things such as canoeing, sailing, raft building, climbing, abseiling, hill walking, survival exercises, archery, mountain biking, kayaking…


If you’re 14 to 18 and want to enjoy Scouting you can do so by joining Explorer Scouting. As an Explorer Scout you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, orienteering… as well as work on projects helping to support you local community.
