About Us

Welcome to the official website of Welland Valley Football Club.

Founded back in 1998, we are now one of the largest clubs in Northampton. Since 2009 we have held FA Charter Standard Club Status.

We offer boys and girls the chance to play football, from our Under 7 youngsters all the way through to Under 16s.

All of our teams currently play in the Northampton & District Youth Alliance League (NDYAL) or Northampton Women and Girls football league (NWAGFL). In addition to competitive youth football there are also non-competitive opportunities with mini-soccer.

We currently have over 200 registered players. Every single one of them shows a real and dedicated commitment to their teams.

In partnership with Northampton Borough Council, we have our own ground at Wootton Brook in West Hunsbury. We have three 11 a-side pitches, two 9-a-side pitches and two mini-soccer pitches. We work closely with the local residents and parish council, putting us at the heart of the local community.

We are lucky enough to have our own ground, which means we can hold an annual summer tournament. Each year 56 teams and more than 750 youngsters from U7s to U16s compete in this brilliant event.

A committed team of Welland Valley people ensure that the club is carefully managed. Chairman Adam Hawkings leads the management team, ably supported by secretary Denise Freegard-Hardinges, treasurer Sara Wilks, welfare officer Michael Hardinges and the rest of the committee team. Every manager from each individual team is also on the committee. ensuring they are always up to date with the current goings on within the club. They all work tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of the club.

As you’d expect, all managers and/or coaches have achieved at least an FA level one qualification in coaching football. They are also first aid trained. In addition to this all managers, assistants and official parent helpers have attended an FA safeguarding children workshop and are all CRB cleared.

At Welland Valley FC we are extremely lucky to have lots of talented individuals working with us.  Together they ensure that our teams give their best performance every single week, as well as doing everything possible to ensure the club continues to grow and develop.

Without exception they are enthusiastic, energetic and motivated to encourage players of all ages to reach their potential.

We’re always on the look-out for managers, coaches and players. So, if you’d like to join a top-notch club like ours, click on ‘Contact’ at the top right of the screen for more information.
