Freshford Utd Youth F.C.


Freshford United Youth FC is a community football club for girls and boys of all footballing ability from ages 6-18. Our home is Browns Park, Abbey Lane, Freshford BA2 7TB.


We are very proud of our club's philosophy:

• To provide football to children of all ages and abilities, in a safe and friendly environment. 

• To deliver age-appropriate coaching to support long-term player development. 

• To encourage all players to try their best and make the most of their abilities. 

• To offer a challenging but supportive environment where children can learn from their mistakes without undue pressure and anxiety. 

• To promote good behaviour and respect for others. 

• We will do all of this by creating an environment where children are allowed to play football at their pace, at their skill level and to their enjoyment levels. This is achieved by having a “no-coaching” rule for all parents and spectators when watching their children train and play.

From September 2017 we have teams for the following age groups:

- Under 7's

- Under 8's

- Under 9's

- Under 11's

We are after a few more players and some helpers to set up an Under 6's team so if you have children who would like to join our club at any age group or are a parent/coach who would like to get involved, please contact us:
