The Frilsham & Yattendon Football Club used to play on the football pitch alongside The Clubroom.
During the 2018/19 season there were not enough players who were able to commit to playing each week, which meant there was no weekend football throughout the season.
This outcome is very sad for older residents who originally played and have supported football on the Frilsham pitch for generations. For younger Frilsham residents the neglected state of the pitch became a concern but there were cost implications for its ongoing maintenance by a football club with no income.
However in 2019, the annual charity football match took place on Sunday May 5th which was very successful in raising money for cancer awareness and research.
There will not be a Frilsham and Yattendon team playing in the 2019/20 season however the pitch and changing rooms have been hired to a Thatcham team (Black Horse) who play in the Newbury Sunday league.
The good news is that the pitch is being maintained once more and anyone who likes watching football can go along on a Sunday morning and cheer them on. Check when home matches are on the Sunday league website:
