Club History

The Club was initially formed in 1990 as Borough United by Martin Castle and a group of parents who started with one team of under 10's. The Club quickly grew to 3 teams of differing age groups.

In 1996, Borough United became Rushmoor Sunday Youth as we joined the adult Rushmoor Sunday FC club based at Farnborough RFC, to provide a youth section with a natural follow through to adult football with a single team structure. In this year the teams comprised under 11/14/16 years, the under 17 team having progressed to senior football.

In 1998, Steve Read who was coaching the Cove F C Youth Section approached the Club, as the Cove team was looking for a new home. After lengthy and in-depth meetings, the two clubs realised that both shared a common ethos with regard to the development of youth football and so the Cove players and staff transferred to Rushmoor Sunday Youth, with Steve acting as Vice Secretary.

Between 1998 and 2004, more active officials have been put in place and the Club Constitution modified to suit the modern requirements of a football club.

In 2004 after a great deal of hard work from all active committee members the club applied for the FA Charter Standard, and were awarded FA Charter Community Status, this being the highest level that can be reached we were very pleased that our hard work and efforts were rewarded in this way, and we are one of only two clubs in our area the other being Aldershot Football Club to receive this level of award from the Football Association. Due to this we changed our name to Rushmoor Community FC.

Sue Carter was involved with our nursery for ten years and helped shape the club to where it is now, lots of players that Sue coached initially are still playing at the club and benefiting from those early years coaching.

We now have players from age 4 to 7 in our Nursery Section that feed into our youth teams for both male and female footballers. Our teams play in the North East Hants Youth League and we operate teams that run from Under 7's right through to Under 18's. 

In 2006 we formed our adult men's team who play in the Aldershot & District League, thus providing an exit route for our older youth players into adult football, this is a further commitment to our continued growth for grass roots and Youth football within the Rushmoor area.

The Club is now based at Southwood Playing Fields, Grass mere Road, Farnborough.
