Club History

Ascot United was founded in 1965 by a men’s team who played their games at Sunninghill, with “after match meetings” in The Wells public house in Cheapside village (now the Marrakesh).

Within three seasons, the club had gained permission from the Ascot Racecourse Trustees to convert the land north of coach park 10 into a football pitch. A wooden clubhouse was built and this team went on to win many prestigious trophies in the years that followed.

Various youth teams represented Ascot United over the years up to 1988, but the size of the club never exceeded 8 boys’ teams. From 1989 there was a gradual increase in demand and in 1992 there came a turning point when small-sided games were introduced for 7 and 8 year olds and the men’s team reformed, having disbanded in 1980. Some of the other important milestones in the club’s history are:

1990 A new club house was erected at the Racecourse Ground
1991 A new pitch and training area was constructed on waste land
1992 The club house was converted
1994 Floodlights and improved drainage were added.
2003 Partnership with Charters School was established and the website went live
2004 Ascot United awarded FA Charter Community club status
2006 The senior team became champions of the Reading Senior League gaining promotion to the Hellenic League 1st Div East and also won the Reading Evening Post Cup Final at the Madejeski Stadium in Reading
2007 The senior team finished 4th in their first season in the Hellenic League
 
The Club Today

The Club has grown to become one of the largest football clubs in the UK . Currently there are over 750 registered players, embracing all ages from age 5 and all levels of ability. As the 2008/09 season gets underway, nine of the Senior mens first team have come through the Ascot United youth setup.

Ascot Utd fields 55 teams every weekend including 4 adult teams and 5 girls’ teams. It is supported by 46 businesses who provide various forms of sponsorship, it is run by over 100 volunteers 80 of whom have formal FA coaching qualifications.

The club’s status was underlined in August 2004 when it became an FA Charter Community club, at the time only the second club in Berkshire to receive this award.

 

Club Aims

The club intends to continually improve its facilities and the standard of coaching it provides. We are in discussions with the Ascot Racecourse Authority and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to secure our future at our home ground and we are also aim to get funding to improve the facilities there.

We are proud of Ascot United, a football club with its roots in the local community.
