Ferndown Sports FC

Ferndown Sports FC were founded in 2003 following several successful seasons in the Dorset Saturday League as Forest Inn FC. The club has risen from Dorset Division 4 all the way up to Division 1 before moving into the Bournemouth Saturday League for the 2009-10 season. Further success has followed with the club being promoted to Division 1 at the end of the 2010-11 season and has since, firmly established itself as a leading team in the Division.

The club has continued to build on this by introducing a 'Reserve Team' in 2010 and a further 'A Team' in 2012 founded from the Shamrock club, these teams currently compete in Divisions 3 and 6 of the Bournemouth Saturday League. The club are also fully committed to achieving 'Charter Standard' by the end of the 2012-13 season, this is an FA incentive to enable teams outside the Football League to meet the FA standard focussed on providing well run and sustainable clubs. Ferndown Sports FC are currently looking to add another team aimed towards the youth age groups within the next 2 years and are in discussion with local schools, community groups and the FA for their views and opinions as to how to provide this.

In order to reach their many goals, the committee has worked tirelessly to refurbish the clubhouse/changing room facility at King George V Playing Fields, Ferndown and has raised over £35k though local sponsorship and funding to complete this project. They have also recognised the need to improve the training experience and have added UEFA qualified coaches and additional training equipment to ensure the players receive the best possible facilities in order to develop within an organised and fun environment.

Away from the playing field, the committee are keen to offer various social events for both the players, their partners, family and friends. These include Xmas parties, Seasonal Awards Evenings, pool nights, go-karting, paint balling as well as general social meets, the club have secured links with local businesses in the Ferndown area and beyond to hold these events.

Ferndown Sports FC are always looking for players, coaches and volunteers, so if you're interested in coming along and being part of Ferndown's fastest growing club, please contact our 1st Team Manager, Andrew Tibbles (contact details to the right)
