Hares Youth Football Club was formerly known as Hormead Hares FC mainly based at The Meads, Hare Street.

Officially formed in October 2000 the club became one of the youngest teams to be awarded the Charter Standard status after just 2 years, which was then closely followed with the prestigious Queens Award for Voluntary Service. Following years of growth and success both on and off the field, the club moved to our current home in Standon & Puckeridge.

The club ethos stayed strong and having now partnered with Ralph Sadleir School and the local Parish for use of the Standon and Puckeridge Community Centre facilities,  the club has once again found a strong base to both develop and grow once more.As of 2021, the club has appointed a new committee with the aim of moving the club forward for the future.

A revised Academy setup gives children the opportunity to develop their confidence before moving to competitive football, with the anticipation of newly formed team at the under 7 age group each year from this point forward.

We are looking forward to becoming a greater part of the local community
