Football at Malvern

Football has a long and successful tradition at Malvern College, all of our coaches involved with our boys and girls football teams have Football Association qualifications.

Football is very popular at Malvern College: we have six Senior boys’ teams, four Junior boys’ teams and two Senior girls’ teams, as well as recreational football.

For our Senior pupils, football is available in the Autumn and Spring terms three times a week. We also offer co-curricular club football twice a week which is open to pupils from all year groups.

The Autumn term is predominantly focused around progressing in Cup competitions, with both boys’ and girls’ 1st XIs entering the Independent Schools Football Association U18 Cup and U18 Shield, as well as the English Schools Football Association U18 Cup.

We also regularly play local schools and clubs in the Autumn term and have opportunities for our Recreational XI to play in matches.

The Spring term is our main football season. We have block fixtures for all year groups, with up to 12 teams playing in a given week. Our Girls’ 1st XI completes in the ISFA National 7s and we also hold inter-House Football Tournaments, so there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to play.

Club Links

Malvern College has strong links with local clubs, and talented footballers can train and play outside of school for Worcester City Football Club and Leigh & Bransford Football Club. There are also opportunities for pupils to trial and play for the ISFA representative team, either at regional or national level.
