Football teams are from children through to veterans.
Easington United AFC is a friendly club, run by a committee of dedicated personnel, each of whom wishes to see it progress as far as possible in the non-League game.
The Club commands good support in the Holderness area and across the East Riding of Yorkshire, with a solid core of Hull-based members willing to make the regular fifty-mile round trip to train and play. The strong spirit present within the Club stems from three tragedies sustained in fairly recent times – twice during the Nineties and the most recent in 2015. The camaraderie engendered then has helped to forge strong bonds between its members. Up until very recently, the Club continued to buck current trends by managing to field three open-age teams in Saturday football. Of these the most senior continued to progress by securing membership of the Central Midlands Football League in 2009/10. Unfortunately, the club’s location – outside the League’s traditional heartlands – led to its eventual resignation from the competition in 2016. In addition to open-age football, the Club’s commitment to local youngsters saw an official FA-approved Club Link forged with local side Sporting Withernsea Wolves JFC. Currently, the club has a more informal tie-up with another junior team at Patrington. Throughout the past twenty years, the aim has been for the Club to progress as far as it can in the Grassroots game. Immediate aims on the field are First Team success at Humber Premier League level and a tilt at the East Riding County FA Senior Country Cup, a sustained challenge by the Reserves for a return to the ER County League Premier Division and a bit of success for the Awd Ezzies in the Hull & District Veterans League. However, the overriding aim is the continued development of younger players in order to ensure a long and enjoyable career playing the beautiful game. Off-the-field the Club has made significant developments to the Easington Recreation & Sports Ground (familiarly known as ‘Low Farm’) and it continues to do so in tandem with the local Sports Association. As an FA Charter Standard Adult Club, Easington United is constantly looking to further itself and build on its reputation as a ‘flagship’ club for the area. The future is bright; the future is – hopefully – green and gold.
