Our Club Facilities

We currently have two full size pitches of which one has been adpated for the U13’s/U14’s transition into 11 a side football, with slighlty smaler dimensions than the mens pitch. There is also a 3/4 pich for 9 a side football, two pitches for 7 a side and a mini pitch for our U7’s/U8’s teams. With continous investment into pitch maintenance we are very proud of the clubs playing surfaces.
A long and rocky road has now become a viison realised. Our new clubhouse has finally opened its doors for good. Our kitchen is now fully functional with the capability of producing hot and cold snacks and refreshments. The club now operates the kitchen on match days and accepts both cash and card payment.

Our Teams & Programs
It all starts from when they are small, Alderbury football club takes its responsibilty in helping nurture our youth players from as young as 6 years of age
Continuing the football journey though to U18’s we are commited to fair play, equal opportunities and developing our youth players
Adult football is where it all began at Alderbury in 1903. The club continues to keep the tradition of adult football and are very proud of our current adults team achievements.
Alderbury is a regional hub for the FA youth referee mentoring academy. We repect our refs as much as our club members.
We love to host training days and holiday training camps and this has always been a regular part of the Alderbury football calendar. Training days are always driven by our volunteers giving up time to coach children in and outside the club. Keep and eye on this page for our next planned training program
Through the football season we have several open days. These are to bring new players looking to join an opportunity to get a feel for the club, its coaches and facilities. We don’t have football trials and we don’t turn players away based on their abilities. Instead we adopt an “everyone gets to play football” ethos.
Volunteers & Coaches
Like any grassroots football club, Alderbury relies on its kind volunteers and coaches to keep the club running smoothly and to help provide a fun and quality environment to keep children playing safely. There is is no such thing as to many volunteers and so if you have a desire to get involved please do contact the club.
Alderbury Football Club was formed in 1903 in the village of Alderbury 5 miles south of Salisbury, Wiltshire.
Over the years the club has become an integral part of the village and works closely with the Parish council, Longford Estate, Alderbury & West Grimstead C Of E Primary School and many other organisations to help continue its success. It was involved in helping to produce the village plan and was also involved in the consultation for the Salisbury & District local development framework.
The club originally consisted of one men’s team that played on the local recreation field in the Saturday Salisbury & District league. The field was owned by Longford Estate and sub-let to the football club by the parish council. Originally, the changing facilities were a small block building intended for use by the Cricket club as a store. Read how things developed over the years:
