Bushey and Oxhey Football Club are an FA Charter Standard Club, members of the Watford Friendly League, West Herts League and affiliated to the Hertfordshire Football Association.

We are a club with a strong set of values and principles, with a philosophy and ethos that is focused on long term player development and inclusion. We are a non-profit making organisation dedicated to promoting and enhancing the culture of youth football and sports education in our local community – operated by dedicated parents and FA qualified coaches.

VISION AND AMBITION
We have big ambitions – a vision to become the best place to learn how to play football outside of the professional club academies. As a result our standards are very high, providing the very best playing and training facilities in Hertfordshire, training kit, playing kit and jackets – to emphasise professionalism – as well as continual investment in equipment and coach education. We firmly believe we offer the best football experience in the county and certainly have not seen a club in our area who can rival what we can offer.

We are proud to be at the heart of the local community with strong ties to the Bushey, Oxhey and Oxhey Village area. The 2015/16 season sees the club grow significantly again due to unprecedented demand, fielding 25 teams  – u7 Bobcats, u7 Bulldogs, u7 Rhinos, u7 Stags, u8 Vipers, u8 Scorpions, u8 Piranhas, u9 Herons, u9 Hornets, u10 Sharks, u10 Cobras, u11 Leopards, u11 Jaguars, u11 Cougars, u12 Hawks, u12 Falcons, u12 Wolves, u13 Lions, u13 Panthers, u13 Tigers, u14 Bears, u14 Dragons, u14 Eagles, u16 Colts and u16 Pumas. We also run a highly successful u6 Soccer School for children in Reception Year and Year One.

PATHWAY TO PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL WITH WATFORD FC
In late 2013, we agreed an exciting link with the Watford FC Academy which opens up a pathway for our most talented players into professional football. The link will see our teams attend Academy sessions and play matches against the Watford Academy sides across all age groups. Our coaches will benefit from support from Watford’s outstanding coaching staff and their scouts will frequently attend our matches to help spot and develop our talent, bringing them into the Academy set up to trial and play. This relationship underpins our commitment to put player development first and become the best place to learn to play football outside of the professional football clubs.

BEYOND MATCHDAY
Being a Bushey & Oxhey FC player means more than just playing matches. We have a thriving social set up hosting xmas and end of season parties, a Summer Ball as well as ad hoc events throughout the year. We recognise that some of our players may prefer a coaching pathway rather than a playing pathway in the future, so last season we introduced the opportunity for boys aged 12 and above to secure the FA Junior Sports Leader qualification at the club – our first cohort of 14 boys successfully passed the award in June 2015. Boys who reach 16 years old will have the opportunity to take the FA Level 1 coaching qualification, fully funded by the club, and subsequent opportunities to help coach our younger teams.

All our managers and coaches are CRB checked and hold FA coaching qualifications. The club also employs FA licensed coaches to compliment our coaching staff, ultimately delivering a great coaching syllabus designed to develop the player.

Home Ground and Home Games

All Bushey and Oxhey FC teams play their scheduled home matches on Sunday mornings at the Metropolitan Police Bushey Sports Club, on the best junior football pitches in Hertfordshire. The ground address is:

Bushey Sports Club, Aldenham Road, Bushey, Hertfordshire WD23 2TR
