Welcome to Felixstowe & Walton United Football Club

Welcome to the Seasider’s 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 the new clubshop and some other minor ground improvements. This week we have also increased the number of urinals in the mens clubroom toilets and our new wooden outdoor furniture will be in place for this weekend. Installation of a folding partition wall in the main clubroom will also be completed this week to create a separate room for meetings and to use as a matchday hospitality room as required in the Thurlow Nunn League.

The club currently has 2 more planning applications being considered, one for the extension to create a new function room, and another to build a stand behind the Colneis end goal. Decisions on these planning applications are expected imminently. 

Having reached our £530,000 target for funding the new development project, we are continuing with our 'Kit It Out' Campaign, with the aim of raising further funds to make our new home a comfortable and inviting place for us all by funding things such as Plasma Screens, Surround Sound and Lighting System, outside seating, play area, furnishings and all the other little creature comforts we would like. This fund currently stands at £10,201

 

We will be holding 'Kit It Out' bucket collections at every match played at the ground and you can also support the following events and fundraising schemes to help us reach our 'Kit It Out' Campaign target.
