About the Club

Raiders TournamentBerkhamsted Raiders CFC has become one of the most successful and respected youth football clubs in the country, and in Europe!

Last Season, Raiders were awarded the Herts FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year 2016/17 for the fifth time, and in 2015/16, Raiders won the UEFA European Grassroots Club of the Year – Silver Award. 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 this Club what it is.

We receive great support from our local schools, Ashlyns in particular, in making Raiders a true Community Club.   We thank those who support and help fund our activities – local businesses and individual parents – through their sponsorship and efforts.

In 2017/18, we will provide sport for a record number of members – over 1,000 boys and girls playing football in 80 teams from U7 to U18, plus a Ladies team, a Veterans team, Senior team, and initiatives for Walking Football and Inclusive Football.  Our fastest growing section is Girls Football – our priority in terms of the club’s development.

An FA Charter Standard Community Club… show Respect!

As an FA Charter Standard Community Club, we expect the highest standards of conduct from our players, parents and supporters. We are passionate supporters of the FA Respect campaign. We ask that you keep this in mind as you support your Raiders team. Always remember that football is there for the enjoyment of the kids, whether they win or lose.
