Club History

Club History

The Club was formed in 1977 with a single team entered into the local league at that time. At that time it was called Gomersal Boys F.C. and ran out of the Wheatsheaf Inn in Little Gomersal.

As the club grew it attracted more and more youngsters, including girls, so in 2005 the name was changed to Gomersal & Cleckheaton F.C. There were 12 teams with over 200 players participating during that year.

In 2006 we formed a link with local senior club, Liversedge F.C., who play in the Northern Counties East League. This became the second base for the club and home for the annual 5-a-side competition.

With the support of the West Riding County FA, to which the club is affiliated, we achieved FA Charter Standard Development status in 2006.

The Girls Team was formed for the 2006/2007 season and the U6 Tots group was started up to allow children of all ages to join the club.

In 2016 we formed a partnership with local cricket club, Spen Victoria C.C., allowing us to use their facilities in winter for the mini soccer teams and provided the third base for the club, now our current home.
