Woburn Lions Football Club
Woburn & Wavendon Football Club (formerly Woburn Lions and Woburn Lionesses) was re-named in 2014. After 35 successful years in our old guise, the re-branding recognised the evolving nature of the area we play football in, and its’ influence on the players, coaches, volunteers and families that make up the Club. Importantly, our boys and adult male teams continue to be known as “The Lions”, whilst the girls and ladies teams are still “The Lionesses”. “Very much a natural evolution, we see the re-branding as further progress for us, whilst still remaining true to our reputation for being a friendly and welcoming club offering sportsmanship, good organisation plus loads of fun and enjoyment” commented Club Chairman, Ian Doggett.
Founded in 1976, the Football Club is one of the oldest and largest in the area. The stats speak for themselves:-
- almost 400 boys and girls of all abilities playing for more than 30 teams (6 years of age through to adult).
- Watched and supported by nearly 800 parents.
- Along with family and friends, a regular audience of some 6,000 adults living mainly in South east Milton Keynes and West Bedfordshire.
Non profit-making and 100% volunteer run, Woburn & Wavendon F.C. is an F.A. Charter Standard Club. This means the club is proven to be well run, sustainable and places child protection, quality coaching and safety as paramount. A true testimony to our success is that new generations of many former players keep coming back to join our teams.
Most of all though, The Lions & Lionesses are ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN. We aim to help all our players develop their full footballing potential, make friends and enjoy loads of smiles along the way.
