About Us

The Club

Junior Elite Football Club (JEFC) founded by Colin Omogbehin over 20 years ago is an outstanding South London youth football club setting the standard at grassroots level and consistently giving several boys a pathway into professional football careers.

JEFC is committed to ensuring your child is trained by coaches at academy level standards.

Our coaches train their teams twice a week and lead them to showcase outstanding football in matches week in week out.

All of our players are privileged to be invited to train at Fulham Development Centres, at least twice a week, meaning, potentially your child has the opportunity to train and develop a minimum of 20 times per month.

It is this commitment that makes us Elite compared to other grassroots teams.

Approaches and Contacts

Important Message to our Parents and Guardians

You are not permitted to contact any other FA affiliated football clubs throughout your registration period. Likewise any other clubs, academies, scouts, and agents must abide by the FA ruling that they should not make an approach directly to you or any person connected to you. They should contact JEFC.

JEFC will endeavour to develop you as a player and aim to gain exceptional players higher-level experience, therefore, any matters of this like should be directed through JEFC so the ‘regulated process’ can be monitored and applied.

Player Development

Placing players according to age groups is usually because it helps for administrative reasons; however, it sometimes is restrictive on player development, especially if a player has been identified as being more physically, technically and tactically advanced. From time to time JEFC Coaches will request for those player(s) to ‘play up’ in an older team group to either train or play in a match. This is normal practice.
