Inkberrow Football Club was established in its current form in 1978.
The junior section was established in 2000 in response to a demand from village children to play well organised football in a safe and happy atmosphere.
In 2005 the junior and senior sections combined to provide a single club now providing football for all, irrespective of age, sex, capability or disability.
The club now provides football to over 200 children and adults across 19 teams. Children are introduced to the game within the popular Saturday morning Development Squad sessions for 5s â€“ 7s. All age groups from 8 â€“ 16 are represented in the Ambassador Evesham Football League and in order to challenge the more capable players, some teams have become established in the Midland Junior Premier Football League and the Central Warwickshire Youth Football League.
Youngsters at 16 further their footballing education in senior football and play in the clubâ€™s Academy team in the Stratford and District Alliance.
The clubâ€™s intends itâ€™s 1st team to play at the highest level possible (the new pitches have been critical to this ambition) and currently a young but talented squad play in the Midland Football Combination. In 2010 this team reached the final of the County Junior Cup losing narrowly to Archdale â€™73, a team from two divisions above.
In recognition of the clubâ€™s high achievements in administration and coaching, the junior club was awarded â€œCharter Standardâ€ by the FA in 2004 and the senior club was similarly recognized in 2006. The merged club has worked closely with the Worcestershire FA and achieved Community Club Status in 2007. The club has received further recognition by receiving both the county and regional awards for best Charter Standard Club in both 2004 and 2007, and it was recognised as the best Charter Standard Community Club in 2008.
The speed with which the club has grown has been exceptional and its philosophy has been at the heart of its expansion. It has quickly built a reputation for quality and equality. The club was constrained by poor and inadequate pitch provision and it is these new pitches which we hope will provide an enhanced surface upon which players can develop and exhibit their skills.
Ever ambitious, the clubâ€™s plan now looks forward to the development of improved changing and clubhouse facilities along with a floodlit artificial training pitch.
