Tigers Football

Founded in 2016, the football club was created to provide an opportunity for 5 year olds looking for a first experience of football in a friendly, caring & relaxed environment. Entering our fifth season, thanks to some really committed and supportive volunteers we have established Huish Tigers Football Club within the community.

In 2018 the club was awarded The Somerset FA Club of the Year in recognition of all we’re trying to achieve. This season we will run 11 teams with groups at U6, U7, U8, U9 & U10, along with a pan-disability team and a veterans team for over 35s.
