Willingdon Athletic Youth FC is an FA affiliated England Football Accredited Club located at Huggetts Lane Recreational Ground, Willingdon, East Sussex.
Willingdon Athletic FC has been in existence since 1918 and the Youth section was re-established in 2018 by Gary Norwood and his partner Laura Dempster, with a strong Under 14s team. The youth section has continued to grow and at the start of the 2021-22 season the club had 10 league teams across various age groups and 2 further development squads.
The aim of our club is to provide qualified managers and coaches enabling every child or young person to develop to their full potential. Maintaining strong links with our senior teams provides our players the opportunity to develop into adult football and the senior section with a pool of young talent.
We’ve partnered with the Support Sport Lottery to raise vital funds for the club. You can support us by playing the Support Sport Lottery. We’ll receive 50% of the lottery proceeds and you could win up to £25,000 in the weekly draw!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
