Help us with our expansion plans!

Olveston United Football Club, in conjunction with Old Down Cricket Club, are aiming to expand and improve our home facilities - The Olveston Sports and Social Club. This cannot be done without financial support and a lot of effort behind the scenes. Both sporting institutions have a growing membership base and expanding youth sections and we hope to secure their future by achieving this.

History of the Club

Olveston United Football Club was formed in 1926 and, for the first few years of its existence, played in the Bristol & Suburban League. In 1932 we joined the Bristol & District League, winning the Division 4 Championship in our first season.

In recent times, Olveston has appeared in no less than seven G.F.A Cup Finals, winning the Primary, Minor and Intermediate Cups, runners up in the Intermediate Cup in 1993, twice runners up in the Junior Cup and runners up in the 1992 Senior Amateur Cup final. The highlight was being promoted to the Bristol Premier Combination.

Interestingly, the colours worn by all our teams are the same. The Blue and Yellow you see today are the colours of the "Gloucestershire Hussars", the regimental colours of Col. C.E. Turner, our Club President from 1926 to 1962.

Two League sides play each Saturday and the U18s team plays on a Sunday.
