Hawkwell Athletic YFC Profile

Hawkwell Athletic F.C. (ECFA Community Club of the Year 2010, 2014 & 2016) was founded in 1974 when platform shoes and long hair were all the rage. Leeds Utd. were league champions whilst Manchester Utd were relegated! Every boy and girl was playing with Lego, whilst Ping-Pong was the top computer game (for those who had computers). The Wombles dominated the music world and the must see TV show was TISWAS. McDonalds opened their first restaurant in the UK,.....how things have changed!

Since that time the club has grown into one of the largest football clubs in the Southend area with 28 teams covering Mini, Junior, Senior and Vets football. In 2006 the club was awarded with the FA Charter Standard Community club mark and has a well-established tradition of attracting talented players to a well-organised, friendly and respected club where the main priority is for everyone to have fun.

Players of all abilities are welcome and catered for at the club with the emphasis on developing players and coaches whilst maintaining their natural enthusiasm for football. We currently have the following certified coaches:-

41 x FA Level 1, 5 x FA Level 2, 1 x FA Level 3 (UEFA "B" badge), 13 x FA Youth Module 1, 5 x FA Youth Module 2, 1 x FA Youth Module 3, 1 x FA Level 1 goalkeeping coach and 2 x FA Disabled footballer coaches. All our coaches are CRB checked. In Summer and Winter we run a Saturday morning soccer Academy for youngsters who are learning for the first time. We encourage our players, coaches and parents to become qualified referees and to attain FA coaching qualifications. We have links with Arsenal Football Academy and teams from both Leyton Orient and Hawkwell have gained experience from playing against each other.
