2016 Punjab United Football Club
Punjab United Football Club



Achievements to date

  • 2016 - FA Charter Status
  • 2015 - New U8 team established
  • 2002 - Punjab United FC began

Over the past 13 years Punjab United Football Club has gained much strength and recognition in its local leagues, and is ready for an unprecedented move into the National League System at Step 7.

Punjab United has had a very promising season on the North Kent Youth League, for our U11 and for the 2015-16 season we had an U8 team competing, who have been very successful. Our Youth set up has expanded rapidly with almost 50 boys training every Saturday morning. We have three FA Level 1 coaches with all of them moving onto Level 2 next season, and an additional coach preparing for the FA qualified Goalkeeping coach. The proposed spend of the funding received will be used to help encourage further FA Level 1 support as we look to expand teams.

FA Charter Status was achieved in the spring, which has accounted for the influx of players, and we are hoping to achieve an advancement to this status over the next year.

Punjab United are ready to play in the FA National League System’s competitive Saturday structure, as we have an opportunity to provide stability and a long term football philosophy to teenage players currently looking for a club. This has always been our ethos and committee’s aim.
