About Us

Established in 1958, FC Elmstead has evolved from an adult only side, to a club which has various adult teams and an extremely healthy youth section.  

At FC Elmstead, we’re more than just a football club – we’re a tight-knit family. With 17 teams spanning various age groups U7-U18s, we provide a nurturing and supportive environment for young footballers to develop their skills, grow as individuals, and forge lifelong friendships. 

FC Elmstead youth is located at Chislehurst Recreation Ground and is at the heart of its community. Here, children are encouraged to develop their love for the beautiful game in a fun and safe environment. 

FC Elmstead is an FA Accredited club, with the aim of ensuring all who play, coach, or support our teams respect and understand the values that are expected of an FA Accredited club. We support the children of any age to achieve all that they possibly can, by being the best they can be. We are diverse, accepting, family focused, and believe that football should be open to all. 

We take immense pride in our community spirit, fostering an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere for players, parents, and supporters alike. At FC Elmstead, everyone is valued and treated as an integral part of our football family. Our vibrant and diverse community allows individuals to thrive and create lasting memories, both on and off the pitch. 

Safety and well-being are our top priorities. We maintain high standards of child protection, ensuring that all our coaches are properly trained and qualified.
