About the Club
East Fife Community Football Club (EFCFC) previously East Fife Youth Academy was renamed in 2017 when it was realised that we are a club catering to the whole community.
Our short video will give you first hand info on our club.
In 2013 East Fife JSC, East Fife Youths, East Fife Community and East Fife Girls & Women’s became one. The idea of bringing all the parties together was to share the same vision, direction and have one ethos running consistently throughout the club, joining all parties together also had the added benefit of creating a stronger link to East Fife FC and senior team. Players can join the club at the age of 18 months and from there can progress throughout the club. By creating a pathway children can move from the club onto Fife Elite and advance hopefully into EFFC & EF Women’s first team.
EFCFC currently has over 400 kids registered, accumulating in 17 boys youth teams which take part in CEFSSA fun 4/super 5 festivals, CEFSSA 7-a-side league and FFDL and AFYFC Leagues.
We also have a Girls and Women’s section which is run by Liz Anderson which holds a further 70+ registered members, 6 teams, and a community section which currently runs an over 35’s, walking football team and Mini Fifers.
Teams are very friendly and as a result, the club is seen as an extended part of the family, we encourage get together’s and fund-raisers to bring the community together.
By running the community teams as well as the club teams gives the children, from a young age, the opportunity to learn football giving them a good grounding on learning how to play as part of a group/team and encourages them to interact with children from all backgrounds.
Children can join from the age of 3 and from there can progress throughout the club. By creating a pathway children can move from the club onto Fife Elite and advance hopefully into EFFC & EF Women’s first team.
