Widbrook United was formed in 1982. The club is based in the Widley and Purbrook area of Waterlooville in Hampshire, England.
From the early days of our first inception, Widbrook Utd has grown significantly. Today, we manage many teams and training sessions for children aged 4 years and upwards. Our distinctive team colours, red and black, have been with us since the start.
Widbrook Utd is proud to have received the FA Character Standard Award at both youth and senior level. This offers the assurance that we maintain the highest standards across all aspects of our club. This includes extensive vetting of staff via the Disclosure and Barring Service, and ongoing training for managers and coaches.
Our club’s teams play football in five Hampshire-based leagues:
Our club’s name is derived from the first part of the name Widley and the second part of the name Purbrook. Our club’s badge is symbolic of the meaning of the village names. Widley means ‘a willow wood’, while Purbrook means ‘brook of the water sprite’. Thus, our badge depicts (in stylistic form) a willow tree near a stream.
