Elsenham Youth FC was founded in 2000 by three parents to provide an opportunity for boys and girls from Elsenham and its surrounding villages to play organised football on a weekly basis. The first training session in June 2000 was attended by more than 50 children, some of whom are still with the club today.
In its first season, the club ran teams at under-8, under-10 and under-14 age groups, with limited success. The number of teams gradually increased, reaching a record number of nine in the 2009-10 season.
The club earned its first major success in 2007 when the under-14 team won the Harlow League Cup, beating Saturn 5-2 in the final at Harlow Town Stadium.
Training continues to be held from 10am to 11.30am on Saturday mornings at Elsenham Recreation Ground.Children of all age groups are welcome, regardless of sex or ability. Appropriate footwear and shin pads are a necessity.
For those children interested in more competitive football we run teams that play mini-soccer and eleven-a-side football across three leagues. The club currently has 10 qualified coaches who have passed examinations set by the Football Association.
All roles within the club are performed by volunteers to enable our children to play. Without such volunteers, we cannot maintain the high levels this club has achieved in such a short space of time.
