Welcome to Felixstowe & Walton United Football Club

 

Welcome to the Seasiders official website 2017/18.

2016 was the dawn of a new era for the club, an ever growing youth section, the first sod being turned and the first brick being laid for our new home.

The building of the clubhouse which we now call home was a long time in the planning & construction and it was all done with one objective, to take our club and all its teams, both senior and junior, to a better place on the football map!

Hopefully 2017/18 will see us consolidate our place and go from strength to strength.

Join us on the Journey, bring a friend, there’s room for everyone!

Development Fund, Social Events & Fundraising

Work continues on ground improvements and the supporters club are funding some additional works from their club shop profits. The elevated filming platform is now in place and work on the new players tunnel gates starts next week.

We are also investigating ways to create more on site parking if finances allow, with quotes now received.

As part of the ground works, we aim to further enclose the ground by installing new fencing behind both goals, creating storage and training areas in the space behind. We are aiming to fund this through advertising banners positioned on the new fencing. This will be available from just £100 and anyone interested should contact Chris Daynes at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

You can support the following events and fundraising schemes to help us continue improving facilities for all teams using the ground.
