Thomas Footy   Passionate about creating opportunities for all individuals.

Established in 2016, Herts Youth Inclusive Football is a Community Group  run by representatives and volunteers from affiliated football clubs across Hertfordshire.

Herts Youth Inclusive Football aims to create opportunities for players of all abilities to get involved in football and provide inclusive teams the opportunities to play matches.  HYIF help clubs to develop their inclusive teams and also aims to create a clearer development pathway for players to progress in their football.

Herts Youth Inclusive Football provides a valuable social platform for children and young adults to enjoy sport, meet up with friends and have fun.  There are opportunities for players to play matches at premiership clubs and also represent Watford FC Inclusive and play for Herts Youth Inclusive Football.

We continue to fundraise and are always keen to hear from any companies or foundations looking to sponsor our activities.  We work closely Watford FC CSE Trust, Herts FA and for the 2020/21 season have funding from Kids In Sport, Hertfordshire FA and Communities 1st, but to be sustainable, we need to continue to raise funds.  Please get in touch with us if you think you can help in any way.
