Rising Stars


For the little ones, Didcot Casuals FC runs the "Rising Stars" section, for boys and girls up to the age of 6 years where they can come along to learn about football in a friendly and fun atmosphere. The children are taught basic footballing skills as well as life skills such as cooperation, helpfulness and teamwork in a pressure-free environment. Parents are actively encouraged to support their children both during the sessions and at other times by practising with them. Our qualified coaches will ensure the children learn and enjoy themselves in equal measure (see Club Contacts section for coaching contact details).


As the children progress through the age groups, they will be able to take part in friendly matches against like minded clubs in the area from the age of Under 7s. We will continue playing friendly matches at Under 8 and Under 9 level and then the children progress to competitive games from Under 10s. All of these games are played under the umbrella of the Oxford Mail Youth Football League, with separate games starting in the Oxford Mail Girls League at Under 10 (for girls aged 8 years and over).

Training Sessions

Training takes place on Saturday mornings from approximately 10:00 am for boys and girls, with FA-qualified and CRB-checked coaches. The cost of training is 1.00 per session, with the first session free.


Please ensure that you bring a drink for your child (water or squash), your child has shinpads and, if possible, football boots, and during sunny periods you bring suncream to protect your child's skin during training.

Venue and Parking

The Rising Stars train in Brasenose Park (aka Loyd Recreation Ground) on Brasenose Road. Parking is in the school car park entered via Manor Crescent (though please note that very occasionally, when there are large numbers of matches taking place on a Saturday morning, you may be directed to park elsewhere).
