Ramsbury Football Club are delighted to be supported by Sports Therapist Frankie Naylor. Frankie has been connected with the Club since her son came to play and has been our fitness guru and source of superb advice to players and coaches alike. She has completed group sessions with our U14s and U15s teams and also younger age groups last year and has kindly agreed to continue to offer advice and help for our coaches and players. Although the COVID 19 restrictions mean this can only be remote advice for now, Frankie is happy to provide what help she can. You can contact her on 07787 345418 or

Having coached a variety of sports over the years Frankie’s main focus is trampolining. As a qualified coach for 23 years she has found that understanding the biomechanics of trampolining is a fantastic grounding for assessing and coaching the equestrian athlete to improve performance.
With over 600 clients Frankie now works from both her purpose built studio in Lambourn and within a variety of racing and other equestrian yards. Her main areas of work include sports massage and exercise rehabilitation for riders and equine sports massage.
Frankie has recently conducted three additional qualifications with The American College of Sports Medicine to further her knowledge in the areas of corrective exercise, elite performance and children in sport.
Please see below the FA direction allowing limited non-contact training for small groups of up to 6.
Ramsbury FC will return to limited training under discretion of individual age group coaches and in line with the FA direction provided. This applies to all age groups.
Safety remains paramount and all Coaches will be required to stringently follow the FA direction and Safeguarding requirements; post when and where they will train on the Coaches WhatsApp Group and ensure all parents / guardians are made aware of the requirements.
Enjoy your training. Jon Symon Chair
Please see below a link to the update from the Wilts FA CEO. There is no news about being able to train again, but Wilts FA are certainly planning for next season:
The FA Charter Standard Programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme open to all grassroots clubs and leagues. It aims to raise standards in the grassroots game, supporting the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding commitment, quality and achievement.
Ramsbury FC have once again been awarded the FA Charter Standard and it is very much thanks to you all for your outstanding contributions, but especially to our Club Secretary Nicola Hickford for her hard work in ensuring we met the requisite requirements.
Please note that the FA Charter Standard accreditation is for clubs who can be proud to be places where people want to play. These are the clubs who demonstrate they offer well-run and sustainable football. Clubs which achieve The FA Charter Standard status are proud to prioritise qualified coaching and safeguarding as well as the values of The FA’s Respect campaign as part of their game.
There are two different entry levels for The FA Charter Standard club accreditation: The FA Charter Standard Youth and the FA Charter Standard Adult and Ramsbury FC have achieved both.
Clubs which achieve The FA Charter Standard accreditation are challenged to maintain high standards and, where appropriate, to improve and progress to new levels. The accreditation makes a positive difference to the way clubs are run and to people’s enjoyment of football. The FA aims to support all grassroots clubs to reach Charter Standard status through our network of County FA’s and Ramsbury FC are proud to be fully accredited as a Charter Standard Club.
