More about the team
Ascot United F.C. are a football club based in Ascot, near Windsor in Berkshire, England. They were established in 1965. Currently they are members of the Hellenic Football League Premier Division. The East Berkshire, UK club fields 67 teams, from Youth teams to the Senior Side every weekend and has well over 800 players. It is supported by 46 businesses who provide various forms of sponsorship and the First team sponsors are DP Worldwide Freight who have a 20-year association with the club. The club is run by volunteers over 90 of whom have formal FA coaching qualifications. The club is affiliated to the Berks & Bucks Football Association
Ascot United was founded in 1965 by a men’s team who played their games at Sunninghill, with “after match meetings” in The Wells public house in Cheapside village (now Mikados).
Within three seasons, the club had gained permission from the Ascot Racecourse Trustees to convert the land north of coach park 10 into a football pitch. A wooden clubhouse was built and this team went on to win many prestigious trophies in the years that followed.
Various youth teams represented Ascot United over the years up to 1988, but the size of the club never exceeded 8 boys’ teams. From 1989 there was a gradual increase in demand and in 1992 there came a turning point when small-sided games were introduced for 7 and 8 year olds and the men’s team reformed, having disbanded in 1980.
In 1990 the club started to work on some improvements to its infrastructure, with a new club house being erected at the Racecourse Ground, and a season later a new pitch and training area was constructed on waste land. The work continued in 1992 when the clubhouse was converted and Floodlights added in 1994. Then in 2003 a Partnership with Charters School was established and the club website went live, this was followed by achieving FA Charter Community club status in 2004.
With the work carried out off the pitch, under manager Stuart Scammell results started to improve on the pitch with the club winning the Reading Evening Post Cup final at the Madejski Stadium in the 2005-06 season, and the following season winning the Reading League Senior Division. This league title gained them promotion to the Hellenic League Division one East in the 2008–09 season they finished Runners-up in the Division and got promoted to the Premier division. Once again the club upgraded its facilities and ground to meet step 5 requirements, with new Floodlights in 2009 and a new Clubhouse and stand in 2010.
The club made its debut in the FA Vase in the 2010-11 season and in 2011-12 season the club made its debut in the FA Cup under new manager Jeff Lamb, as long serving manager Stuart Scammell resigned at the end of the 2010-11 season due to work commitments. Their debut in the FA cup was also special as it was the first ever game to be broadcast live on a social networking site, when they played Wembley in the extra preliminary round of the FA Cup, shown on Facebook
