The club was formed in 1977, purely running junior sides, and it progressed into senior football in 1987.
We have three senior and six junior sides, with the 1st Team playing in the Toolstation Western League Premier Division (Step Five of the non-league pyramid), our successful 2nd and 3rd Teams play in the South Devon League Premier and Division One.
The junior sides are in the Torbay Pioneer League. The club continues to grow last season, 2015-16 we had our first Ladies Team and they won their League title and League Cup in what was a great season for them, and they have now been promoted to the South West Women’s League, jumping a division in the process. Then in 2016-17 we will have a Ladies Development Team and Girls Under 12 Team, as we continue to increase our family club.
The 1st Team do a huge amount of travelling, with their opponents based in Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and the Bristol area, which does mean that our travel costs have gone up considerably, this will be added to by the Ladies 1st Team this coming season.
Our Homers Heath ground has been built up by our own club members, with the Clubhouse, grandstand, paving and floodlights, all being constructed by them over the last nine years.
With the improvements continuing with the addition’s this year of enclosing the ground, two turnstiles, a new covered stand and an outside toilet block all added early in 2016, and we have now got a ‘D’ Grade for the ground, which would allow Southern League football, which is what we want to achieve.
We are continually looking to improve the facilities at Homers Heath, for everyone that visits us. The club is run on a purely voluntary basis with members giving their time for the club for no financial gain.
The Club is eager to develop strategic partnerships with local businesses and entrepreneurs.
We have many exciting opportunities available and invite expressions of interest from any interested parties.
Our sponsors play a crucial role in helping us drive forward improvements both on and off the field of play.
By developing the facilities and services we already offer, we aim to fulfil goals, to provide a top football club for the local community.
With our ten year plan, we will be a self sustainable club, but that is only possible with the help of all our fantastic sponsors who are joining us on this great journey, which will see this club thrive into the future for many seasons to come.
