Joining Raiders

Going from strength to strength

In 2023/24, we will provide playing opportunities for over 1,300 boys and girls in our 95 teams.

Berkhamsted Raiders has grown from its beginnings in 1996 as a collection of individual teams run by individual managers to a community organisation providing football for around 1,300 children in Berkhamsted and the surrounding areas.

The Club is a registered Charity which has the following objectives:

  • To promote community participation in healthy recreation by providing facilities for playing football.
  • To advance the education of children and young people.

At Raiders, we play competitive football but we measure our success by the enjoyment and involvement of children from our local community, not just by winning Leagues and Cups. Our philosophy can best be summed up as:

“Combining excellence in the community with excellence on the pitch”

As a club, we encourage all parents to support good play, and sportsmanship, irrespective of which team is playing and we praise effort and performance more than results.

We provide football for boys and girls from U7 to U18, We also run Mens Senior, Ladies and Veterans teams and run sections for Futsal, Walking Football and Inclusive Football.
