  • FA Cup
    • Second Qualifying Round 2005–06, 2011–12, 2018-19

This was a great deal of hard work that has gone into securing a 25-year lease for the kids just down the road on Chantry Park where they can enjoy their football within secure and pleasant surroundings. Being a Community based club, the strategy of Staveley Miners Welfare Football Club got strengthened for the benefit of the Community.

This is all about the Community, the families and kids of our Juniors Section. This is about creating and sporting opportunities for the community of Staveley and wider afield.
