Those boots were made for playing at Bashley FC

Now and Then

Yes, those boots were made for playing, and play is what they did.  These boots were worn during the first-ever game at Bashley FC in 1947 by the late Jim Chase and donated 71 years later to Bashley FC by his son Les.  The dirt of the pitch still on the boots. 

Let's make sure Bashley FC's legacy continues. We pride ourselves on being part of the community and nurture new talents, males and females, alike. Here at Bashley FC families come together in safety. We aim is to make this happen again, as soon as the country gets the 'go-ahead' to plan for the future. 

Please help by donating funds to refurbish the grounds, a refurbishment which will be necessary to undertake, since right now we are unable to look after our well-loved football pitch.
