Ashcott Football Club was established in 2013. Our club enables Children and Adults from the local community to come together and enjoy playing football, in a fun and safe environment. We have over 120 children and 60 Adults playing for Ashcott FC.
We are a FA Charter Standard Club with FA level 1 & 2 qualified coaches leading in all training for children registered with us. Last season the Adults won the Yeovil League to secure promotion to the county league allowing us to become a Senior football club.
The focus of the club is children to have a clear progression into adult football following the U16’s age group, as part of this link the adult players will be helping with coaching the youth players.
The club is developing each year and we work closely with all Primary Schools within the Polden Hills area to ensure all children, both boys and girls have access to the club. We work closely with the Ashcott Playing Fields Committee as we are working hard to develop the current grounds, we play on to enhance the experience for all involved.
We will be entering 8 youth teams and 3 adult teams for the 2019/2020 season. We will enter our U7’s, U8s, U9’s, U10’s U11’s and U13’s into the Taunton Youth League and our U15’s the Yeovil Youth league, both leagues will see the children play against teams from the Taunton Deane, West Somerset and Sedgemoor area.
Our Adult 1st, Reserves and Vets will enter into the Somerset County League, Yeovil and District league and Somerset Veterans Legends League, both leagues will see the teams play across the Somerset area. All home games will be played at the Coronation Playing Fields in Ashcott.
We also hold “Mini Kickers” training sessions from 3 years old each Saturday morning at Ashcott School from 10am during the season. This gives young children their first taste of football, with each session focusing on the fun element of sport and teamwork.
