About the Club

Widbrook United was created in 1982. The club was formed in the Widley and Purbrook area of Waterlooville in Hampshire, England.

Our Teams

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.

What Standards Do We Uphold?

Widbrook United is proud to have received the two-star England Football Accredited Club status 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.

Leagues We Play in

Our club’s teams play football in five Hampshire-based leagues:

  • The Portsmouth Youth Football Sunday League
  • The Mid Solent Saturday League
  • The Hampshire County Women’s League
  • The Hampshire Girls’ Youth Football League

Where Does the Name Come from?

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.

We train and support younger individuals to learn and engage with football.

Our brand new refurbished clubhouse opened in January 2019.
The Lord Mayor opened the building, supported by Havant Borough Council, along with the media filming, and showing coverage of the opening.

 

The refurbishment now gives us six large changing rooms, each fully fitted with own toilet and showers. Bigger storage space for our goals, a newly fitted kitchen and serving Tea Hut hatch to serve from. We cannot thank everyone enough for the support and dedication shown to us throughout the last year while all this has been completed. 

 

At Widbrook United we believe that football is for everyone. That’s why we accommodate interested players of all ages and genders and fully support our teams with training and guidance. 

 

In the summer of 2018, Widbrook United achieved the great honour to be associated and joined in partnership with the Havant & Waterlooville Football Club Men's Academy.

 

The Hawks play at West Leigh Park and have a huge following. We are working with our individually selected high ability Under-16 age groups within Widbrook United to help possibly feed through to the Academy. 

 

Our joint venture will keep the flow of upcoming footballers feeding through the levels and helping children achieve their dreams.
