From the early days of that first team, the Club has grown in size and now runs teams and trains at all age groups from under 6 upwards. The distinctive colours of Red and Black were there from the start of the Club.
The Club's teams play their football across four Hampshire based leagues; Portsmouth Youth Football League, Mid Solent Youth League, Winchester & District Girls League, and the Hampshire County Women’s League.
Widbrook Utd are proud to be England Football Accredited (formerly FA Charter Standard) at both youth and senior level, which assures that the highest standards are maintained in all aspects of the club - including DBS checks and training for all managers, coaches and volunteers.
The Club name derived from the first part of Widley and the second part of Purbrook, and the badge is symbolic of the meaning of the village names. Widley means 'a willow wood' and Purbrook means 'brook of the water sprite'. The badge therefore shows, in stylistic form, a willow tree over a stream - the sprite not included).
All of Widbrook’s home matches are played at Barton's Green, Havant. The location contains some of the best pitches in the Havant area, directions and further information regarding the teams can be found on the clubs own web site.
