Hythe and Dibden Youth Football Club

About the club...

Formed in 1999 Hythe & Dibden Youth Football Club currently runs 24 teams from the under
7 to under 18 age groups and offers training to children from reception year age at our popular
soccer school & futsal sessions. We also offer specialist goalkeeper training for all these age groups.

In 2014 we were awarded F.A Charter Standard Status.
The FA Charter Standard programme is a kitemark, which recognises and rewards high quality levels
of provision in club and league football. The kitemark is awarded to clubs and leagues that are well run,
sustainable, and which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.
Read more about Charter Standard at the FA website here

League entries start at Under 7's in the Eastleigh and District Mini Soccer & New Forest leagues,
the Tyro League from under 11 & then City of Southampton Youth at under 16.
Scroll down the page a little to learn more about football for boys & girls age groups from reception year.

Hythe & Dibden YFC is not just about progressing as a footballer, it plays a bigger role in
building self esteem, promoting self discipline, team work, promoting commitment,
providing positive physical activity and bringing a community together for children and adults...

We would like to give a great big thank you to all our trainers & managers, sponsors & parents
and especially the players who make up such a great football club.

A message from the chairman


Hello HDYFC family...............
So the season has finally landed this coming weekend, and on behalf of the committee I Would like to say a
massive good luck to all of the Hythe and Dibden YFC teams that begin their adventure this coming Sunday.
There will be a lot of ups and downs over the coming months but let's all remember why we are here and not get
too carried away with the results.

Let's make this years group of boys and girls proud to be part of the Green and White army and give them the
support they need to have fun and enjoy their time playing for our great club. We the committee will try our hardest
to watch as many games as possible and look forward to seeing our brand of football being spread across the county and beyond !.... Let's share our good practice

Terry Cox
Parent, Coach, Supporter & HDYFC Chairman




As announced at the Presentation Night we are delighted to have new sponsorship with
New Forest Care. They are sponsoring all our teams across the age groups from under 7s upwards.
They have been invloved at the club for a little while and have put in a huge amount of help (not just financial).

"We have chosen to sponsor Hythe and Dibden Youth Football club, as we have seen firsthand the commitment
and energy delivered to local kids in our community. The club ethos is sound and mirrors what New Forest Care stands for. Hythe and Dibden Youth football is not just about progressing as a footballer, it plays a bigger role in building self esteem, promoting self discipline, team work, promoting commitment, providing positive physical
activity and bringing a community together for children and adults alike."



The long awaited 4G pitches at Applemore school have opened this week. This is a massive step
forward for our club to have use of this outstanding facility. No more lost football to the weather !
This is the result of much effort from a multitude of people from Applemore College, Hampshire County
Council, Hampshire FA, New Forest District Council, Football Foundation & Sport England to name but a few.
A tremendous asset to our communty as a whole...
click the picture above or here to go to a new page of photos of the facility in use...



Despite the weather this years event was truly outstanding & a massive credit to all those
who both organised & took part. Around a thousand children played football in a great
environment with big smiles all round.

...you, your players & parents helped my kids to enjoy themselves. "

My son has been attending the Friday night soccer school for the past three weeks and it's fair to say that he has
