Eckington Boys Football Club was founded in 1983 by J. Adams, J. Gardner, J. Barden, A. Bailey, M. Wake and P. Reaney. The club formed from the old Halfway and Eckington Club when it was realised that the then Under 11's were mainly from Eckington, and from this came the idea that Eckington could and should support a local team. From this small beginning the boys teams have gradually expanded to the current level participating in 12 different age groups.
Girl's football is now well established at the Club. We currently have an Under 10's Girls Team playing in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Girls County Football League. We also have an established Girls Soccer School for Ages 7 to 13.
This season has seen the introduction of the Club's first U21 Team (First Team) This will hopefully inspire younger players to extend their association with the club and reach this level of football and then eventually into Open Age football.
There are now a total of 15 teams at the Club with over 200 boys playing each week-end throughout the season. We also have a Girls team with a squad of 12 players and approximately 30 to 40 boys and girls, between the ages of 4 and 13, attending the Soccer Schools every week.
Start Training (first Stage) from the age of four years upwards. We welcome both boys and girls into the 4-6 year old training group.
