Patrington AFC

About the club

Re-formed in 2011, football in Patrington has never been bigger! We currently have under 14s, under 12s, under 10s, under 8s & under 7s. We hold training sessions for under 6s every Saturday morning and have recently started sessions for 2-4 year olds also on a Saturday morning. Our strong links with Easington United AFC continue, providing a pathway to open-age football through their Academy team.

Club Ethos Our club ethos is a written declaration that sets out how we want to run as a club. It’s simple and concise and can be understood by players, parents and officials.
