Battlebridge FC By Battlebridge FC

We are an inclusive football club based in Redhill Surrey, seeking to grow and further develop football for all regardless of gender, age, ability or needs.

Battlebridge FC have been running for about 5 years, and are growing steadily from a handful of young disability players, into a fully inclusive club with players from age 4 to 44 playing in a variety of leagues. We do not have trials for our teams, as we aim to develop players using the skills they have, instead of focusing on what they aren't so good at. We are seeking funding to pay for our training venues so that we can keep our subs down to keep our club, and everything we offer, open to all, not just those who can afford it. We want to see our players given the best possible opportunities to develop to be everything they can be, and believe that through team sport, we can develop life and employability skills in young people who may otherwise not be given a chance to achieve their full potential.

What we'll deliver:

  • Pay for training facilities
  • Develop more teams
  • Be able to ensure that all our coaches are fully qualified

Why it's a great idea:

There are very limited opportunities for inclusive sport in our area, and those there are are full, with waiting lists. We aim to accept everyone who wants to join and to develop volunteers to coach and support our players without having to turn anyone away.

Steps to get it done:


We are a Charter Standard club, fully affiliated to via Surrey FA and we play in a pan-disability tournament once a month to allow our players to develop resilience and team playing skills.
