The 2022/23 season has been another successful campaign for Stoke Gifford United FC.

After securing promotion to the Gloucestershire County League for the first time last year, the first team have put in a solid first season. Finishing in 7th place and showing a lot of promise, the plan from here is to build and challenge at the very top of the league next season.

The club have enjoyed a close relationship with SGS College, where the first team now play their home games, which has lead to the club being in a strong position recruitment-wise, with young players learning their trade in adult football alongside experienced managers and coaches.

Meanwhile the reserve team achieved back-to-back promotions over the last two years resulting them reaching the Bristol Suburban Premier Division for the first time. With a blend of young talent and a close knit group, managers Ross and James made the team super successful and will look to kick on again next season.

Last but not least, the A team enjoyed a much more fruitful season. The new management team of Ian and Lewis rejuvenated the squad who enjoyed a second-place finish.

The club are looking to further build and grow, and are particularly keen the secure more local talent to take us to the next level. First team manager Dan Dunt has said:

“I don’t think that in my long time with and around the club we have been in a stronger position talent-wise. Both the first and reserves are in the highest divisions they’ve ever competed in. Also the partnership with the SGS has been great for both parties. From our point of view we have access to some very talented, young players and in return the SGS get the benefit of us giving their youngsters the experience of completing in adult football and learning the trade at a competitive level.”


From here, the club do not want to stand still, instead they want to continue to grow. Lots of work is going on in the background to aid this. However they would like to appeal to local community to come up and support games and even make yourself known if you’d like to volunteer in any capacity. There are plenty of roles and jobs in the club that could do with support.

Additionally they would like to to say to all players 16 and over who are either beginning adult football or looking for a change to get in touch and join a club on the up!

As the club continue to progress they are appealing for support from local businesses that would be interested in sponsorship. In return they will happily share and advertise businesses through their social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as in matchday programmes.

There are also sponsorship packages where businesses can show off their logos on match kit, club polos or training kit.

Club secretary Tom Burton said:

“We always support our sponsors as much as possible and in a number of different ways. If you would like to help, please get in touch. We have a number of different sponsorship opportunities and will be using a raffle system this season. Keeping a club of our size running isn’t easy so any help and support the local community and local businesses can offer would be greatly appreciated.”

The club start training in early July.
