Uxbridge Amblers are awarded FA Accreditation, the first Walking Football Club in Middlesex and one of only a few nationally.

The FA Accreditation is awarded to any club playing any type of football that meets the exacting standards of club policy, procedures and ethics set by the FA. The quality kite mark we now can proudly display demonstrates that at long last the FA recognises Walking Football as an integral part of Grassroots football in England.

Friday 17th September 2021

Today we celebrate our 7th birthday as a Walking football club. 

They say " time flies when your enjoying yourselves" and the last 7 years has most definitely been enjoyable. 

We became the first independent Walking Football Club in London , achieving FA Charter Standard status and winning numerous trophies including the European Masters in Italy.

The club has been a leader in developing the game nationally by being part of FA working groups,  Middx FA workshops and organising the Middx FA Walking Football league. 

Our Community work has seen £26k raised for local causes , coach mentoring the disability of Hillingdon football teams and establishing the Silver Fox Memories and Forget Me Not Fc award winning projects.

All our success couldn't of been achieved without the support of  our members and the Uxbridge Sports club. 

With 70 registered members playing the beautiful game our future is bright and we are proud to be a Club others follow. 

Happy birthday Foxes,
