Welcome To Raiders

Founded in 1996, Berkhamsted Raiders CFC has become one of the most successful and respected youth football clubs in the country, and in Europe! We are also proud to be the largest girls football club in the country!

With 1,300 players in 94 youth teams plus Senior, Veterans, Ladies, Walking Football and Inclusive Football sections, we offer opportunities for children and adults of any ability to get involved in football. As a national winner of FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year, and Silver Award recipient for UEFA European Grassroots Club of the Year, you can be assured that Raiders is the ideal environment for your child to get involved in sport and develop to their maximum potential. The awards recognise the magnificent work that Raiders volunteers put into running the club – the Trustees of the Charity, Committee Members, Age Group Coordinators, Managers, Assistant Managers, Coaches, Parent Representatives, Match Day Delegates and parents who make the Club what it is

We welcome players of all abilities. Our aim is to ensure the enjoyment of every player and maximise their potential in terms of personal development and football ability.
