Welcome to the website of AFC Southgate – an FA Charter Standard Development Football Club based in North London with both a Youth and Senior section. AFC Southgate offer options for children of all abilities aged 4 to 16 yrs. Whether your child wishes to play recreationally or competitively as part of a team we have you covered! Our mens team also compete at Non-League level (11 divisions below the Premier League) managed by club founder Rak Hudson and backed by our parent holding company Kalo Sport.
Established in 2011, AFC Southgate began it’s life running simple Saturday morning coaching sessions in Broomfield Park, Southgate. Word quickly spread about the sessions and before long it had an army of children all eager to compete and represent the AFC Southgate Dragon. The club entered teams into the Enfield based Cheshunt Youth League and it has since grown from strength to strength.
In August 2016 AFC Southgate was acquired by Kalo Sport Ltd to benefit from their infrastructure. Kalo Sport now help with the running of the club with a dedicated Monday – Friday office. The merge with Kalo Sport has allowed the club to grow and really offer the best service it can to the local children of Southgate, Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill. For the new 2017/18 season we will have 14 teams competing in the age groups of under 7 to under 15. We currently have over 250 weekly participating youth players at our club.
The club recently entered mens non-league football for the 2017/18 season. At the helm of this project will be Manager and club founder Rak Hudson supported by co-chairmen Tom Buzzard & Edward Harvey (Kalo Sport). Due to league requirements at this level we currently ground share with Hadley FC at their excellent Brickfield Lane stadium in Arkley, Barnet. This development will help the club provide a clear pathway for our youth players who wish to pursue the opportunity to play senior football within our ranks and our long term plan is to build our own facility so all operations can take place under one roof.
