Ashingdon Youth FC Profile


Affiliated to Essex County FA, the National Association of Clubs for Young People & the Essex Association of Boys & Girls Club.

One of the founder Clubs of the South East Essex Primary League.

Originally known as Ashingdon Boys FC, the Club was formed in 1972 & played at Rocheway Community Centre in Rochford until late 2002 when an important milestone was reached for the Club.

After much hard work , & in its 30th anniversary year, the Club were able to acquire 13.3 acres of land at Cherry Orchard Lane, Rochford (SS4 1PP).

Since then, considerable progress has been made with the playing surfaces and facilities for both Mini Soccer & Junior Football; the Club also has a senior pitch for their 4 Adult teams, many players for whom have developed through the ranks of youth football with the Club.

Voluntary staff are responsible for the annual maintenance & development of the ground and show commendable loyalty year by year to ensuring the ground is maintained to a high standard.

Development of the ground continues every year to ensure the Club can offer all managers, players, parents & supporters of home & visiting teams the best pitches & facilities we can offer.

At the ground there is a Refreshment Bar serving hot food, teas, coffees & sweets; there are Changing Room facilities, Toilet block & a large car park with easy access off Cherry Orchard Way into the Cherry Orchard Lane ground

As part of the mandatory requirements for Youth Football, the Club has 5 v 5, 7 v 7, 9 v 9 & 11 v 11 pitches.

The Club also has a thriving Soccer School (boys & girls) every Saturday at the ground for Under 5's, 6's & 7's & where there are qualified coaches (the Club contact officer is Barry on 07962 010919).


The overall vision of the Club from day 1 was to provide the opportunity for young people of all ages, up to 18, in the community to engage in football irrespective of their ability; to help young people realise their potential, develop personal skills & confidence through the sport regardless of sex, age, disability, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion or other beliefs, & this continues to this day and going forward.

Winning is nice, but not paramount, the players should be able to enjoy the sport.


#To provide a safe & alternative place to go other than playing on the streets or sitting around playing computer games, etc, etc !!

#To continue the annual maintenance & development of the ground for the benefit of not only the home and visiting players/managers wanting to play the nation's favourite sport but also the parents and supporters wanting the best facilities.
