Clevedon United Football Club is a football club based in Clevedon, Somerset, England. Affiliated to the Somerset County FA, the club are currently members of the Somerset County League Premier Division and play at Coleridge Vale.


Clevedon United was formed in the early 1970's as a merger between Clevedon Sports AFC and Tickenham United.

After years in the Somerset County League, they achieved promotion to the Western Football League Division One after a 3rd place finish in the 2002–03 season. In their four completed seasons in the Western League, they always finished in the middle third of the table, and remained members of Division One until 2010.

Since their move to share Clevedon Town's Hand Stadium, they have become eligible to compete in national competitions — their best performances being a run to the Second Round Qualifying of the FA Cup in 2003–04,[1] and reaching the Second Round Proper of the FA Vase in 2000–01.[2]

After enjoying spells under the managerial guidance of ex- Bristol City F.C. defender Andrew Llewellyn, and more recently playing duo Mark Selway and Andrew Woodlands, Clevedon United appointed Alan Smith as first team manager.

In 2010 changes in usage charges meant that the team were no longer able to play at the Hands Stadium.[3][4]


Clevedon United play their home games at Coleridge Vale, Clevedon, Somerset, BS21 6HG.
