Copmanthorpe Football Club

  • Founded in 1962 with one senior team, the club now has almost 300 members spread over 2 senior teams, 11 junior teams, 5 girls teams and 4 disability teams.

  • In December 2004 Copmanthorpe FC was one of the first clubs in the area to be awarded the coveted FA ‘Community Charter Standard’. They are one of only 653 clubs in England to hold this award.

  • Their overall principles are of sport for all, good sportsmanship and for every one of our coaches and players to reach their full potential.

  • Many Copmanthorpe FC players over the past 40 years have gone on to play professional and semi-professional football or coach professionally.

  • The 1st and reserve team play in the York and District Minster Engineering League, with the 1st team competing in the Premier Division which is the highest standard of senior football in the York area.

  • The team welcome and encourage all to come and support any of the Copmanthorpe teams.

  • There are now four very strong girls teams and their thriving disability section competes against many league clubs throughout the North. The quality of the 'Ability Counts' section has been proven, with three of their players achieving England Caps for the national Cerebral Palsy team. The first of these, Steven Brown, went on to play in the CP world cup finals in Brazil.

  • For a small village club Copmanthorpe FC have achieved a lot. The club is part of the community and the community is part of the club. They are very proud of that and are constantly looking to improve upon what they do.

  • Copmanthorpe Football Club is managed by a dedicated and hardworking committee of volunteers.
