Following FA guidelines all grassroots has been postponed until further notice, we hope that everyone remains safe and healthy during these difficult and unprecedented times.

Welcome to South Woodham Ferrers United

Club Statement – Player Subscriptions

Following the FA’s announcement earlier today to suspend all football until 30 April at the earliest the Club Management Committee have made the following decision regarding player subscriptions.

All March payments are currently being processed. However, we will suspend all April payments, with the next payment being due in May. As the situation develops we will review this arrangement and make any decisions necessary.

There is no need for you to do anything – our admin system will amend everyone’s payments. In fact we urge you to not cancel any direct debit please, as this creates unnecessary work for our volunteers and could delay us restarting.

Lastly we would like to wish you all the very best during these difficult times and ask you to bear with us. Every member of the Club Committee have full time jobs but will endeavour to respond to any questions or concerns as soon as is physically possible. Our number one priority is to ensure our long term sustainability so we are all here to offer everyone the opportunity to play football for the long term. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and on our website as that will be the fastest point of contact going forward.
