MISSION - to encourage and promote the development of grassroots football, with emphasis on youth involvement drawn from the local community. Please refer to the Club Development Plan for further information – www.orpingtonfc.com
A COMMUNITY CLUB - The Club believes that, as a large provider of football in a structured, safe and fun environment, it addresses several key criteria for the local community – reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in providing an outlet for local youth, engaging all ages in a healthy and recreational past-time, promoting personal development through individuality, teamwork and the socialisation one would associate with a community club culture.
The Club provides a structure for continuous active involvement as one moves through an association with youth, senior and veterans football. The Club is outgoing and makes positive links with leisure organisations, community groups, borough/parish councils and local Schools in order to widen access and participation. The work of Orpington FC has been recognised by the FA through the award of Charter Standard Community Club status.
