Welcome to Felixstowe & Walton United Football Club

Welcome to the Seasider’s official website, 2016 was the dawn of a new era for the club with an ever growing youth section combined with the building of a new clubhouse, all with one thought in mind, To take the club and all its teams, both senior and junior, to a better place on the football map!

Hopefully 2017 will see us consolidate our place and go from strength to strength.

Join us on the Journey, there’s room for everyone!
