ABOUT

Welcome to Exmouth United Football Club. We are a youth football club based in Exmouth, Devon. We cater for children and young people from the ages of 6 up to 18. If you would like further information about the club or would like to give your child a chance to play and enjoy football then please visit the Teams page for more information on the relevant age group.


Despite unprecedented times and the still uncertain future, the club is determined to grow and continue to provide the children and young people of Exmouth and the surrounding areas footballing opportunities in a fun and safe environment. We will work within the Government and FA guidelines and will ensure safety is always put first. The club continues to believe that the children’s enjoyment comes first.

 

Many lessons can be learned about commitment and togetherness in light of this season and we look forward to the future. 
 

This is what our Managers said about the 2020-2021 season:

Under 18s Coach

"Exmouth United entered a team into the Devon FA U18s League for the very first time. Despite having a small squad, comprising entirely of U17s age players, the lads took on the challenge of playing teams, often all a year older than themselves, with their customary good humour and a fantastic positive attitude. An excellent pre-season was followed by a truncated but very successful League season. Looking ahead, the lads have expressed their desire to train throughout the summer, and are committed to giving it another go next season, in what will be their final year with the club."

U16s Coach
"
In their final season, the U16s really enjoyed their football as a welcome break from the challenges brought by the pandemic and GCSEs. Despite some tough fixtures, they showed great spirit and always worked hard. The families were very supportive and, in spite of the circumstances, everyone made the most of being able to take part in grassroots football."

U15s Coach 
"Unfortunately we played only four competitive matches and one friendly this season due to COVID-19. Running training sessions, in accordance with government guidance, we were pleased that football was one sport that could restart after the lockdowns, albeit in a limited guise under restrictions. All in all a very different and difficult year - lockdown had a profound effect on the mental welfare of many children and to be able to give just even a little respite to them through football has been of great benefit to all."

U14s Coach
"The Under 14s enjoyed their football this season despite the sacrifices coaches, parents and players had to make because of the pandemic. Playing in Division 1 was a good challenge, with the team recording some excellent results. The squad showed great team spirit and determination, in matches and at training sessions. During lockdown we held Zoom quizzes and also sent out drills as video clips with suggestions of how to keep playing in isolation at home. We look forward to playing some tournaments this summer and anticipate having an even larger and stronger squad next season."

U13s Coach

"In a Covid stricken season once again there are still many positives we can take from our time with the under 13s. Moving to 11 aside games brought us lots to learn and adapt to. Following lockdown the team got back to winning ways very quickly and ran out unbeaten once the league restarted. Everything the team had worked on came together and the team played outstandingly. We are proud of our squad and are very much looking forward to taking the team into U14s next season."

U11s Coach
"The 2020 -2021 season for the under 11s was one of change. With the long layoff forced upon us it was great to get back to training in November. Unfortunately, we were not as successful as we had been in past seasons but we have recruited a new players and all are now relishing the challenge of proper competitive football from next season."

U9s Coach
"Despite the obvious disruption, the season saw the girls go from strength to strength. Through the lockdowns, they completed weekly challenges and took part in zoom training sessions, the benefits of which could be seen when we were able to return to the pitch. Opposition coaches and parents regularly comment on their excellent effort, determination and organisation. The girls finally got to play their first matches against other all girls teams, where they recorded some very impressive results. We're looking forward to expanding to two teams for the 21-22 season and competing in girls leagues. Hopefully all the hard work over the last two and a half years will help us to enjoy a successful season!"

U8s Coach
"The determination, commitment and attitude the boys have shown this year has been amazing. They endured 4 stoppages to their season but came back each time like they hadn’t been away. Never wavering from the team plan,  it was great to see them all back doing what they love and doing it with big smiles on their faces before, during and after the game. The boys soon found their feet with the hard work they have put in, picking up win after win and managing to have 100% win record in the very short league campaign. The team picked up their first ever piece of silverware, finishing an impressive 3rd out of 18 in a recent tournament, winning 2 penalty shootouts along the way."
