Association History

The Worcestershire Schools Football Association has been providing football for the students of the county since a group of teachers got together and formed the association in 1948.  In addition to providing competitions for the schools within the county representative sides have always been a major part of the organization at many age groups.  Through representing Worcestershire, boys and more recently girls have been given opportunities to represent their country. The most famous Worcestershire schoolboy to play for England was Duncan Edwards who unfortunately was killed in the Munich air disaster whilst a member of that great Manchester Utd team.  More recently Robert Thompson-Brown a student at New College played for England under 18’s in 2010 and in 2011 Rebecca Lloyd (Chantry High School) played for the England Schools U 15 side after some fine displays whilst representing Worcestershire.

In 1974 following re-organization of the County boundaries much of the north of Worcestershire was absorbed into the West Midlands and Worcestershire joined with Herefordshire to form Hereford & Worcester County School’s FA.  This remained the situation until 1994 when once again the two counties went their separate ways and again Worcestershire stood alone.  The county continues to provide competitions for all schools and also gives representative opportunities for the students in those establishments.  However the association unlike many other County School’s FA’s is run by a very small band of volunteers and would be pleased to hear from anybody who would like to help them.
