Founded in 1990, we now have over 60 teams, ranging from training groups for youngsters through to the veteran’s and men’s teams; and including a thriving girls & ladies’ section.
Our founding principle, which remains true to this day, is to provide football for as many local children as we can. This is why the club has grown so big and so popular; and this is why our men’s & ladies teams still have many a player who has come up through the age groups with the club.
Rather than see the size of the club as a burden, we see it as something to celebrate – the more people that play this beautiful game, the better. We strive to find a place for all, and then nurture all our young players carefully, so as they develop a lifelong love of the game. We have many a team that has won League titles and cups, but just as important to us are the numerous sportsmanship awards the club has collected, and we are fully behind the FA’s Respect campaign. We aim to win with style and lose with dignity. The slogan for our ‘mini colts’ section (which serves the youngest players in the club) is ‘enjoyment development respect’ – and we do not lose sight of those words as players get older.
We are a long time FA Charter Standard club, currently in the process of applying for the prestigious Community Status.
