About Us

Sandown and Lake Football Club came into existence on the 1st April 2021 when two long established football clubs in the south east of the Isle of Wight amalgamated to make one club. Sandown FC who were established in 1880 and Sandown and Lake Youth FC in 1973 joined forces to make a bigger more inclusive club for the bay area. 

The club now comprises 9 youth teams ranging from U8 – U16, and 2 Men’s teams. The club has been set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC) to ensure that all money is regenerated into the club to improve playing facilities and opportunities.


We currently play football across 3 sites in Sandown. The youth play at Fairway Park and Station Approach and the seniors at The Bay Academy.

Club Officials

We are run by an executive club committee of 6 directors whose job it is to push the growth, infrastructure and finances of the club and two football committees covering the youth and senior sections. All directors and committee members are volunteers.
