Horsley Football Club was founded in 1903 at the existing site in Long Reach, West Horsley, Surrey, originally to play senior football locally.
Over the last 100+ years the club has developed and grown substantially, now including youth players from 5 years old to 18 years old including both boys and girls, two senior teams and a veterans side. The clubs aim is to provide the opportunity for youths and adults of all abilities to play competitive football in a safe, controlled, and friendly environment.
The ground has also grown in that time from the original single pitch to today’s facilities which includes two full size pitches, four youth pitches (two for 11v11 and two for 9v9) and four mini soccer pitches. In 2014 after hard work, a huge investment by the club and support from the Football Foundation we were able to build our own floodlit 3G astro-turf training pitch to go alongside the grassed training area at the club. We are very fortunate to have such excellent facilities and playing surfaces.
In 2009 Horsley Football Club was granted FA Charter Standard Club status and we are now one of the Surrey Football Association’s official Coach Education venues aiding in the training and development of grass roots football locally.3 years later, in December 2012 Horsley Football Club achieved FA Charter Standard Community Club status. This is the pinnacle of the FA’s development strategy and in 2013 Horsley FC was proud to be awarded Surrey FA Charter Standard Community Club of the year.
All teams have FA Qualified coaches who carry at least Level 1 FA Coaching Certification, have attended First Aid & Child Protection workshops and have been through CRC verification. Today we have nearly 35 teams and over 500 players playing in the Epsom & Ewell, Surrey Primary, South Surrey and Surrey County Womens & Girls Leagues and our senior teams in the Surrey Couny Intermediate League Western.
We encourage everyone involved with the Club – players, coaches, parents, and spectators – to help us ensure the football is competitive, challenging, and most importantly enjoyable. Training is offered to all volunteers who are interested in becoming a coach, manager or other vital helpers at the club.
We welcome players of all abilities at the club although as a measure of our success, we often have waiting lists for many of our age groups. If you are interested in joining the club please get in touch via the Contact Us.
The Club is run by volunteers and managed by a committee of experienced and enthusiastic parents.

The FA Charter Standard programme was launched in February 2001 to establish, reward, and encourage good practice at grassroots levels, so that parents and children can demand a minimum standard of provision from schools, clubs, and holiday courses.
Horsley Football Club was granted the FA Charter Standard in February 2009 and we are now one of the Surrey Football Association’s official Coach Education venues aiding in the training and development of grass roots football locally.
In December 2012 Horsley Football Club became an FA Charter Standard Community Club.
The project is at the heart of The Football Association’s investment programme for grassroots football, and the status is awarded where The FA’s minimum standards of coaching, administration, and child protection are met.
Many grants and funding opportunities provided by The FA and the Football Foundation are only available to clubs who have gained, or are working toward, Charter Standard.
In 2013 Horsley Football Club became the Surrey FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year. Charter Standard aims to…
– provide a nationally recognised quality control ‘kitemark’
– identify clubs and organisations where best practices exist
– improve the quality of provision of football for everyone
– sustain participation of football players for a longer time
– raise the standards of the grassroots game
