The origins of the current Burnham Ramblers Juniors Football Club began with the boys from Burnham-on-Crouch County Primary School and St. Mary's Church of England Primary School organising friendly kick a bouts on Sunday mornings.
These games were played on the waste ground behind the factories at Springfield Road, not far from our stadium.
The first organised junior football for Under 10's was organised in 1976 by Dick Tracey and Pip Stephens.
Leaflets were sent out informing youngsters that training would take place on a Saturday morning at 10:00am at Burnham Sports Club. Mixed age groups of Under 10's and Under 11's turned out and played a season of friendlies.
Initially the side was named Burnham Minnows. This name was retained until 1980/81 season when a formal link with Burnham Ramblers Football Club was made and the name changed to Burnham Ramblers Boys Football Club. The club provided us with a junior pitch due to the efforts of Tony Ponder.
Sadly Dick Tracey died on the 19th June 1982. His memory is perpetuated in the Dick Tracey Trophy, which is awarded to the 'Clubman of the Year' in the oldest age group team nominating a player for this award.
We left the Wick Road ground at the end of the 1986/87 season to move to our then new 'Leslie Field' stadium in Springfield Road.
Over the years the boys section has grown and we now operate teams from Under 7's to Under 10's playing Mini-Soccer and Under 11's to Under 16's playing the traditional 11-a-side game.
The year 2002 saw another name change and we now play under the banner of Burnham Ramblers Juniors Football Club a name change required as we now have girls playing Mini-Soccer.
We have had a girls side in the past and we hope to build in this area again in the near future.
