The Club


Wessex Youth FC was founded in 1997 by parents whose children weren't getting the opportunity to involve themselves in football. Existing local clubs were only able to offer a maximum of fifteen places per team and so the club was formed to allow twice as many children to play in the under 11 to under 16 age group.

Shortly after our Soccer School for under 5s to under 10s was formed and quickly grew to ensure that up to 100 children were able to spend Saturday mornings playing the great game. Boys and girls of all abilities between six and eleven were encouraged to participate in the sport.


The next goal was to achieve FA Charter Standard Club status. The programme is aimed at boys and girls under 16 and is intended to help children and parents find a club that meets FA standards of quality, safe coaching.  Thanks to a huge effort from all involved with the club we were awarded the prestigious status of FA Charter Standard Club in 2002.

In more recent years, the club has grown to incorporate 17 teams (for more information CLICK HERE) and has achieved huge successes on the pitch.  Throughout all age groups, trophies, leagues and soccer tournaments have been won in great numbers. These extraordinary results speak for themselves and are worthy reward for the efforts from the players and coaches.  

It's worth remembering though that Wessex Youth is completely self-funding and these results simply couldn't be achieved without the army of volunteers who make it possible.
