We formed in 1996 as Bury Girls & Ladies FC. From initially having only 5 girls teams, we now cater for U8s through to Adult. More recently we have introduced several boys teams and through our partnership with Bury FC and Bury FC The Trust, we can offer disability football, men's and women's vets football and men's and women's walking football. Since this time we have gone on to achieve The FA Charter Standard Community Club Award. This is the highest award that can be achieved with the FA and recognises our commitment to providing good quality football to all people in our community.
Our Club offers a warm and friendly atmosphere for everyone to be involved in playing football. We currently have 20 plus teams providing an opportunity for everyone to play football from ages 8+ for both boys and girls, men and women.
Our Teams play in leagues over the local area. In addition to this, we also have teams who specifically cater to those with additional need who play in our local disability football league.
As a FA Charter Standard Community Club we are quality assured to provide fully qualified coaches with all our teams who are also First Aid trained and DBS Checked
