Football is a great way to make new friends, exercise, learn to work as a team and basically have fun. We are always looking for new players, coaches and volunteers who want to get involved in a very successful football club which has been providing football in the community since 1976.

Dunmow Rovers Youth Football Club football for all

All of the club’s teams play in the Blackwater & Dengie Youth League in Essex.

Our Under 7 and 8’s play in a 5v5 format whilst the U9 and U10 age groups play in a 7v7 format. These are small sided non competitive games against other age related teams from the Blackwater and Dengie league with the emphasis on having more ball time, how to play the game, learning fundamental football skills, and most importantly having fun.

At the U11 & U12’s age groups level the teams play a 9-a-side format. The game is aimed at representing their growth from U10’s and younger, but with an outlook of making sure the game, pitch & goals are relative to their size. From U13’s upwards the teams go into the full 11-a-side format.
