Welcome to Ferndale Rodbourne Youth Football Club.

About us

Ferndale EC FC was founded in 1906 and Rodbourne Mannington was founded in 1984. The two joined together in 1996 to form Ferndale Rodbourne YCFC. We are one of the most established youth football clubs in Swindon. We are a community-centered football club that actively encourages children of all ages to take part in football in a safe and friendly environment. Our philosophy is to help young players develop and enjoy their football first and foremost.

We have over 196 young football players representing the club from under 7 to under 18 age groups. All our teams play at Ferndale School in Swindon and compete in the North Wilts Minor & Youth District League.

We were awarded the FA Charter Standard in 1998, demonstrating our commitment to ensuring that all young players are able to learn and enjoy playing football in a safe, organised, and positive environment.
