Committee Our History

Cove Youth Football Club is an FA Charter Standard Club which is committed to the development of junior football in the Farnborough, Camberley, Fleet and surrounding areas.

It was formed in 2004 by Steve Hull who wanted to run a youth football club that was more about the kids and fun and less about making money and winning. With two others he approached Cove Football Club with the idea of them starting a youth section. The then Chairman and Club President agreed and the Cove Youth Football Club was formed.

By the start of season 2004/5 Cove Youth FC had 4 teams at under under 7, 10, 11 and 12 and within three seasons the number of teams had grown to 22.

In order to gain FA Charter Standard a Mission Statement was produced that describes how Cove Youth FC is run and it is -
"We encourage the playing of organised football for children of all levels of ability, within the under 6 to under 21 age groups, in accordance with the Football Association Laws of the Game and Laws of Mini-soccer and to promote honesty, fairness and good sportsmanship for all.

With the leadership and assistance of our senior team Cove FC, we have a structure to ensure that there is a progression from junior to senior football. Our volunteers are extremely experienced in coaching and have attended the required Emergency Aid and Child Protection courses and are also CRB checked." Our ethos is simple - "football is fun for both the players and supporters"

We Are United

Unity at Cove FC saves club

Changes occur in life and quite a few have occurred at YOUR football club.
Cove FC and our affiliated clubs unite to rebuild and improve.

Unity at Cove FC saves club

Cove FC, Cove Youth FC, Cove Walking Football and the MUGA business were all operating in blissful isolation and ignoring the huge possibility there might not be any more football, clubhouse, parties etc. due to ever increasing debts, reducing number of events, drink sales down and a kitchen in decline for food orders.

Add the long list of DIY refurbishment to it all and the situation was perilous with the writing on the wall.

With 120 years of rich history and thousands of hours of heritage at Cove FC something had to be done.

Chairman of the Senior Club, Salvatore Diprima and the Chairman of the Youth Mark Endacott formed a promising relationship back in January.

Both shared a vision to put Cove back on the map and recover from our present position and develop the club. It had to be given a chance and a future.

This being inclusion of Youth Managers in the Senior Club operation and the young players of the Youth being part of the Senior Club squad plans going forward.

Something never considered in the last 13 years by previous senior club managers or their committee.

Unity at Cove FC saves club

Salv and Mark proposed the club ‘Acts as One’ with the addition of Committee members from all our associated parts.

When the word started to spread many were in agreement and wanted to be part of the change so they joined the committee of the senior club to help.

Many meetings were held including the AGM which brought about brave decisions to improve the facilities in the clubhouse and pitch side.

Although teetering on the verge of collapse Cove FC turned the corner and vastly improved.
