About AJFC



Abbotsford Junior Football Club (AJFC) is a voluntary community sporting organisation located in Sydney’s Inner West, serving junior and senior football players in the Canada Bay area, with players primarily from the suburbs of Abbotsford, Chiswick, Drummoyne, Five Dock, Russell Lea and Wareemba.  

The club’s main objective is to provide a safe and friendly environment for football players of all ages. As the club’s name suggests, our core focus is on junior football player development: a coaching director coordinates an age-based training program, ensuring that all children are taught age-appropriate skills and the club offers extended skills training for keen players. The club currently has over 1000 registered members offering junior, youth and senior competitive football within the Canterbury and District Soccer Football Association (CDFSA). Teams range from under 6 to over 45 age groups, with boys, girls and mixed teams playing in the junior ranks.

Club Grounds and Location
Campbell Park and Lysaght Park Field MapsCampbell Park, located in Chiswick, New South Wales, has always been the Club’s home ground. In 2010, the facilities were significantly improved, with the installation of 6 new light towers, providing excellent lighting that meets the Australian Standard for night games to all areas of Campbell Park. More recently, Abbotsford partnered with the Canada Bay Council to upgrade its Campbell Park Club House which opened in 2017 and in 2019, AJFC commenced playing matches on a brand new football pitch across the road at Lysaght Park. The 2020 season sees new light towers on this pitch allowing the Club to offer increased football training area during weekdays.

St John Ambulance Partnership 

Abbotsford Juniors Soccer Club is very proud of our long standing partnership with St John Ambulance Australia. For the last few seasons, AJFC has been unique within the Association in providing first aid support for all home games (Saturday and Sunday), providing critical game day first aid assistance to home and away players. This has become the envy of other local clubs! We are fortunate to have a dedicated first aid room at our club to support St John.

History of Abbotsford Juniors Football Club
Abbotsford Juniors Soccer Club held its inaugural meeting on the 26th October, 1965, with Mr Alan Moore the first Club President, Mr Dennis Craig as Club Secretary and Mr Ray Evans as Club Treasurer. The Ladies Auxiliary was established by Mrs Marg Welling, Mrs Babe Young and Mrs Marvis Verity. Initially, the club competed in the Churches Association but in 1989 the club joined the Canterbury District Association.
 
The club was incorporated in 2001 as Abbotsford Junior Soccer Club and changed the club name to “Abbotsford Juniors Football Club” in 2007. In recognition of the rapidly increasing interest in girls football, the Club welcomed its first female players to competitive football in 2011; an focus that continues for  Abbotsford Juniors today.
