Langho FC

Langho Football club was established over 50 years ago in 1972 and is situated in heart of the Ribble Valley, mid-way between Clitheroe and Blackburn in Lancashire.

We have been rigorously adjudged to be well-run, sustainable and we prioritise child protection, deliver quality coaching and implement the Respect programme.

It is the Policy of Langho FC to provide a safe and friendly environment in which all connected with the Club can learn and actively participate in the game of association football.

The aim of the Club is to develop an environment that allows players, coaches, managers and spectators to maximise their potential and fulfill their aspirations.

Written procedures and systems are in place to protect the players, coaches, managers and spectators of Langho FC and will be continuously reviewed to ensure that we are at forefront of any changes to the Child Protection or FA accreditation requirements.

The club operates across two separate sites. The Rydings is where adult 11 a-side football, 9v9 and mini soccer is mostly played. Our second site is at Northcote where youth football is mainly played on two 11 a-side pitches. In summer 2015 in partnership with the football foundation and private member funding, nearly £200K was spent improving the drainage on each of the pitches at both sites. Today these improvements have lengthened the playing season for each of our teams, and enabled our teams to play more games through the winter period.

The Rydings is home to the clubs social club built by the founder member of the club in 1999, and also the clubs own floodlit mini soccer 3G pitch. Built over a decade ago from club funds, the 3G pitch provides the majority of club teams a winter training venue and the local community an opportunity to play football all the year round.

Currently the club has 3 senior men’s, 24 junior boys teams, a Ladies team and 2 girls teams playing football across different leagues in the region. With development football too starting at 4 years old there is opportunity for all genders of all ages to play football at the club is widespread.

Weekend football is played on both Saturday’s and Sunday’s with the Accrington and District Junior Football League also hiring the club’s mini soccer 3G pitch for their development football games on a Saturday morning. A friendly welcoming environment exists at the club with the social club open on match days and available to hire for private functions throughout the year.

Langho football club was the pioneer of girl’s football in the Ribble Valley setting up the first Ladies team. The current ladies team plays in the Premier League of the Lancashire FA Womens County league. The development of girl’s football at the club has seen hundreds of girls and ladies playing football regularly each week, and we hope through the history and success of our girls and ladies teams, we have created a path for girls to join, develop and move into adult ladies football in the future.

Langho football club is a family club at the heart of the local community and our facilities are available and regularly used by many in the local community, including local business and schools.
