Deeping United Football Club was established in 2018 with 3 squads with a view to offer children of either gender, of all ages and abilities the chance to get active and learn the art of football. we have quickly built a reputation and grown our football community offering to 20 teams in one full season. At the end of the 2018-19 season the club were awarded Lincolnshire FA Grassroots Project of the Year award and gained FA Charter Standard status.
Our ethos in the community as an inclusive club offering a footballing pathway for both male and females from Under 5 years to Over 55s under one community club umbrella. We work alongside the local Parish Council and Deeping Lions to ensure a community feel about the club.
During 2018 we have formed a professional, strong, passionate and ambitious committee, driven to push the club forward! We started with 4 qualified coaches to offer top quality coaching for the players. All volunteers offering their time and knowledge to offer the very best to all within the club.
With the back room positions filled and everything behind the scenes sorted we opened our doors for the first time.
To our amazement we were greeted by 70+ youngsters wanting to join our adventure..... as the weeks unfolded that 70 turned into over 120 youngsters.
We were completely overwhelmed by the vast numbers wanting to be a part of the Deeping United F.C. adventure..... but as a committee we set out to get extra coaches on board to be able to offer ALL the chance to join us. As a club we decided we would do something other clubs don’t offer, we paid to put people through their coaching badges so we had enough coaches and we didn’t have to turn any of the children away.
We now currently have boys and girls youth teams ranging in ages from under five through to under eighteen and five mens and ladies adult teams
Deeping United FC has recently (July 2021) been awarded the highest FA accreditation of three stars to replace the FA Charter Standard accreditation
