BWB Values Projects

Since the beginning of the season, our BWB boys have been applying themselves to their Values Projects of raising one hundred pounds. This goes towards the costs of providing the programme from which they benefit. There have been many inventive ideas and the putting forth of much effort. Projects have included: dog walking; cleaning; car washing; odd jobs; selling cakes and sweets; auctions; distance running; bike rides; car boot sales; climbing Mount Snowdon; creating art to sell and much more.

The Values Projects are about much more than raising finances. In designing and carrying out these projects our boys gain the opportunity to learn and demonstrate some of our core Values – Responsibility, Compassion, Resilience and Curiosity. In a society that is often promoting ‘what can I get?’ the Values Projects focus the boys to think ‘what can I give?’.

A number of boys have recently been approached by professional clubs to join the academy ranks and we would like to wish them all the best of luck for the new part of their journey.

From the 2002 year group, Fin Blackman and Oli Swann have joined Bristol Rovers, whilst Joseph Porton has joined Bristol City.  In the 2003 age group, Callum Heal, Matt Morris and Niall Lovelock join Evander Grubb at Bristol Rovers.  With Jago T Roberts and Joe Andrews at Southampton, Charlie Bullock at Bristol City and Wilf White and Archie Matthews at Swindon Town, it seems BWB once more has a strong representation in the local academy system.  Once a smurf, always a smurf:) Good luck boys

Fantastic trip south


The 2017/18 squads have returned from another successful pre-season camp in Appledore.

The boys aged between 8 and 14 spent three days mixing football with surfing, with the added addition this year of a highly competitive tug-of-war competition which was won by Big Will and his apprentices.

It was great to be reunited with Alan and the rest of Bideford Blues & Appledore FC and we thank them for the use of their facilities for training and matches.
