About Us

FourClubs United is the culmination of the efforts by the area’s four largest local youth football clubs who, having provided football for 6 to 17 year olds for a considerable period of time, came together in late 2007 to plug a hole in relation to people whose opportunities to enjoy football have historically been limited, namely those with either physical, learning and/or behavioural disabilities - now embraced by the Football Association under the collective term ‘Inclusive Football’.

 

Key personnel - from Headley Youth, Liphook United, Liss Athletic, Wey Valley and Petersfield Town have joined forces to ensure that this important new facet of local football prospers and develops like any other part of the football community.

 

Training/Coaching Sessions -The training sessions are every 6.30 to 7.30 each Monday night during school term times.  Session are free to participants  and the venue/locations are ;

  >   Winter Months (GMT) at Mill Chase Leisure Centre ATP

 >   Summer Months (BST) at Mill Chase Recreational Ground

 

Matches & Tournaments - we have already taken part in a number of tournaments and had a match or two.  Details are in the Events section of this web site

 

New Youth Players - aged between 7 and 17 are welcome at any time.  We would recommend you contact us first so we can identify any special requirements.  Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements (click here for our contact details).

 

New Adult Players - we are just beginning to explore what we might be able to offer adults and are working with EHDC to provide football as part of their new program of ‘Disability Multi-Sports club’ due to start at Treloars School on May 21st, which in turn, may regular coaching sessions and matchplay at some future point.

 

Who We Work With - Outside of the usual circle of football contacts we are working with The FA, Hampshire FA, East Hants District Council and Hampshire County Council - so if we cannot accommodate a particular disability we should be able to put you in touch with someone who can help.

 

Funding & Sponsors - We are already heavily indebted to PDM Neptec for their wonderful support to date and we look forward to working with them in the future.  As with so many things in life today you can never have enough support, so we are also in the process of applying for grants from EHDC and one or two other funding bodies.  If you have any ideas or suggestions for funding, please let our Treasurer know  mandy.bicknell@fourclubs.co.uk
