IMPORTANT DATES: We are aiming to have more events as a club. More details, final dates and venues to come.
Club History: the club was formed in 1985 in Livingston, Scotland and has grown steadily year upon year. In January 2000, in conjunction with West Lothian Council, we established the first community football club in West Lothian. We are based at Bankton Mains, Murieston, where we administer the grass and astroturf facilities.
In 2009, the club were awarded the SFA Quality Mark Award - Community Award and in December 2009 the club received one of the first 3G facilities in the county and hope this will provide all of their teams with excellent year round training and playing facilities.
The club has over 400 active participants with ages ranging from 5 to 70, and we are proud of the fact that we now provide the largest number of teams to the West Lothian Soccer Sevens and to the West Lothian Youth Football Association leagues. Indeed, we were the first club in West Lothian to enter more than one 11-a-side football team to the Under 13's, Under 14s, Under 15s, Under 16s & Under 17s (2 at each level) leagues respectively thereby allowing more players to participate, develop, and enjoy this game that we all love. The club ensures that all coaches obtain SFA coaching certificates, and many possess more than the recommended minimum. We frequently run internal coaching sessions to help develop coaching techniques and to allow for exchange of ideas.
