The Raiders Team
Berkhamsted Raiders CFC, is a registered charity, run by a group of enthusiastic volunteers and supported by a paid Club Administrator, EIght Trustees oversee the running of the club. The day to day management is looked after by the Football Management Committee, supported by our Age Group Coordinators and Team Managers,.
What makes Raiders different? We're a true Community Club that provides sport for boys and girls of all abilities. Ask me how our teams did last weekend, or where they are in the league, and I won't know the answer!
Trustee - Finance
I volunteer for Raiders because I love football. We provide a safe environment for children to play football and develop their technical skills, and build teams which develop life skills of leadership and teamwork. I make sure that we have the funds available to allow that to happen!
Trustee - Charity Secretary, U7 Boys Age Group Co-Ordinator & U8 Girls Age Group Co-Ordinator
It's great to be part of something that impacts so many people positively. Somehow, I've taken on responsibility for the U7s and the U18s. I've been trying to offload the responsibility for purchasing for some time now. Sorting out the kit for 1,000 players is a challenge. Anyone got a large garage?

I am proud to have been involved with Raiders as a Manager and Age Group Coordinator since U7s , as well as on the Raiders Committee for 10 years. As well as Raiders providing ‘football for all’, I am keen to develop a pathway for our players into the Senior 11-a-side game.
Its wonderful to be part of a true community club giving so many young people the opportunity to develop their skills & fitness, their friendships & a sense of pride in being on a winning team.
My son joined U10 last year and has developed into a proud and determined Raiders U11 player. His enthusiasm has inspired me to join the impressive Raiders volunteer community. As a trustee, my role is to exercise oversight and scrutiny, and help ensure that the charitable objects are carried out and that sustainable revenues continue to be generated.
