Welcome to Euxton Villa FC, we play football at Jim Fowler Memorial Ground, Runshaw Hall Lane, Euxton, PR7 6HQ. The club was originally known as Euxton, playing in the West Lancashire League in 1907. The team led a nomadic existence playing in various locations in the village before finally buying three farmers fields in 1985. Since then the club merged with junior teams from the village and developed the current site. In 2002 we became an FA Community Club and proud to be one of the first 100 clubs in the country to attain this status.
Our new club-house was officially opened in 2009 by Chorley MP, Lindsay Hoyle. This building came about as a result of years of fund raising and a grant from the Football Foundation.
In 2012 we were voted Chorley’s Community Club of the Year.
In 2013 we were Lancashire’s FA Charter Standard Development Club of the Year and voted winners of the North West Region FA Charter Standard Development Club of the Year. A fantastic achievement of which we are very proud.
To receive these awards and are testament to the hard work and professional commitment of all volunteers at the club.
It was also in 2013 that we entered, for the first time in the clubs history, two girls teams into the West Lancashire Girls Football League this now stands at five teams.
We currently have 35 teams in addition to the Boys and Girls development groups.
We also have strong links with Chorley Ladies who currently play their football at ‘Villa’. This means we are in the unique position of being able to offer a boy and girl pathway, from the age of 4 through to adult football, where both Ladies and Men’s teams play in the FA pyramid.
All coaches are FA qualified and cleared to coach children.
Our teams play in the West Lancashire Football League, FA Womens Premier League (Chorley Ladies), Lancashire Evening Post Youth Division, Central Lancashire Football League, Mid Lancashire Colts Junior Football League, West Lancashire Girls League, Veterans Summer League.
