Club History  

Berrow Football Club was founded in 1969 by a few village residents and after a few friendlies, played its first official game in the Weston & District Football League in August of that year.

They played their first season at Unity Farm then moved onto a pitch near Church House Road.  1971 saw the start of Berrow Reserves and the present club colours with the first team changing its kit to Red & Black stripes.  When this area was used for housing a couple of seasons later the Club returned to Unity Farm until they eventually moved to their current home at Red Road Playing Fields in 1978.

The Club slowly grew in numbers and commitment from members of the Club, past and present, have meant that facilities have greatly improved.  The acquisition of the Millennium Field by the Parish Council and the completion of the new changing room complex in 2004 mean that Berrow now has some of the best facilities in the area.

The 1st team were promoted to the Somerset County Football League at the start of the 2004/05 season, after manager Brian Read lead the first team to back to back Weston Super Mare League Championships. They did well, finishing 6th in their first season in Division 3.  The Reserves are currently in the Weston and District League and as numbers are still growing the Club entered a third team (Berrow Colts) in Division 6 of this League in the 2006/07 season. However due to the strain on the personnel and the financial commitment involved the Colts were scrapped after 2 seasons.

Berrow won their first piece of Somerset County League silver ware during the 2008/09 season, under the management team of Chris Warner and Pete Harris, when they lifted the combined Division 2 cup, that season also saw them narrowly miss out on promotion to Division 1.

However the next season (2009/10), under the stewardship of current manager Louis Dean, Berrow first team did the double winning the Somerset County League Division 2 West title and retaining the combined Division 2 Cup. Thus earning the first team promotion to the first division of the county league.

This promotion saw Berrow take their place along side local rivals Burnham United, who had once been 7 divisions senior to Berrow. The first ever competitive meeting of the sides at Red Road. The game ended in a 2-2 draw despite Berrow trailing 2-0 with only 10 minutes remaining.
Despite the expansion in numbers the Club tries to keep the village atmosphere and friendliness that it started with in 1969 by after match drinks at the Berrow & Brean Recreaction Club and by holding fund raising events for the whole Club.  At the end of the day the Club wants to be successful but without forgetting where it came from and that the game is there for our enjoyment.
