FC Leytonstone was established in 2003 to bring together young people within the community and provide them with a platform to express their footballing talents.

Along the way, many achievements and successes have been met and at this present time, FC Leytonstone not only provides the youth with a social platform to gather and create a sense of community, but it also proudly boasts adult and youth teams, affiliated with local England Football Association Leagues. The club boasts a senior mens team and several youth teams, in addition to providing regular football training sessions for over 100 young people. We have a history of title winning teams, and a track record of supporting young people in their personal, social and footballing lives.

Just believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – remember never to quit and you’ll be a winner, the price of victory is high but so are the rewards.

Aside from the successful football activity, FC Leytonstone has done a tremendous amount of good work for the community and prides itself in being a family friendly club, such as raising money for a local children’s hospice as well as donating football kits to deprived young people in Mumbai India, through our partner Slum Soccer. Our coaches, players and parents recently fundraised for the Lebanon Emergency Appeal following the explosion in the port of Beirut by taking part in a sponsored 5K.

During the 2020 Covid lockdowns, our team continued to provide activities for young people through the  provision of online training sessions on Zoom, as well as online careers webinar with representatives of the IT, Health, Retail, HR and Business Management sectors taking part and providing careers advice for our young people.
