All players need to be properly registered with the club before being able to take part in matches but this is a simple form filling proceedure and can happen relatively quickly. Click here for the forms.

The players contribute to the renting of the winter training facility and pay a small match day sub if picked for the team.


Being a ‘Charter Standard’ club we are required to observe the FA’s Respect Agenda.
This covers three main areas:

  • Abuse of referees – by players, officials and spectators.
  • Racism.
  • Behaviour – by players, officials and spectators.

The club has a formal code of conduct which adopts the FA Charter Standard Club Programme Code of Conduct principles, and asks that the guidance is observed at all times – most of which hopefully goes without saying, but where it isn’t written down common decency prevails!

The club also adheres to a formally agreed Health & Safety policy.


If you want to register with the club then there are two forms to complete.Click the links below to download the forms.

The club registration and consent form
The RCD signing on form.
The RCD photo ID form.

Hand the completed forms to your age group manager.

Club History

The current Cumberworth Football Club is a representation of 3 or 4 different football teams that played in the immediate vicinity of Upper Cumberworth in the 1900’s.

Lower Cumberworth FC were very successful in the early 1900’s and won the Huddersfield league on several occasions. Their colours in that era were Amber and Black stripes, white shorts, which is reflected in today’s Amber and Black colours.

Around the First World War, there were teams based at the Forresters pub, the Star, but also at the long defunct Sycamore pub in Lower Cumberworth and the Crown at Birds Edge.

Towards the end of the 20th Century, Birds Edge Football Club merged with what was by then known as Cumberworth Football Club and the club we know today was born, the senior teams being based at the Star in Upper Cumberworth. In recent seasons the senior club had been turning out 4 teams every Saturday, making it one of the biggest clubs in the whole of Kirklees.

The history above helps explain the club badge, which has a crown in the middle of it, from the Crown pub, formerly at the head of Park Lane Birds Edge, next to the Crown Field. The tree represents the Forresters, the Star is self-explanatory and then the three brass balls being the symbol of St Nicholas, the name of the Church at the centre of Cumberworth village.

In terms of Junior Football, the club has successfully turned out sides continually since the first one was introduced in 1983, although the current representation of over 12 teams turning out in Cumberworth colours every weekend represents the strongest that the Junior section has ever been!

On a separate matter and relating to more recent events; Having worked closely with several charitable organisations in order to generate funding for the Changing rooms, which were opened in 2003, there were many stipulations achieved which mean the club was one of the first in the country to achieve Charter Standard status from the FA and subsequently has increased the number of FA Qualified Football Coaches on the clubs register to over eight, across the age groups.
