Heyside FC was founded by the late Brian Bakes in 1975 who identified a need for a local boys team in the area of Heyside, Royton. After completing their first full season with just one team, minimal facilities and equipment, the club was born. Through the support of many dedicated people volunteering their own time the club has grown and developed to become Heyside FC, the flourishing footballing community we have today.
As an FA Charter Standard Club affiliated by Manchester FA the club is now present in 8 Leagues with over 50 teams including boys, girls, open age and a major contributor to supporting the local community with grassroots and amateur football.
ALL our managers and coaches are DBS(CRB) checked and hold an FA Level Certified Coaching Football which include safeguarding and first aid certification.
