About Saltdean United FC
Saltdean United joined the Sussex County League Division Three in 1984. In 1989 under the management of Mr Paul Hubbard. We won Division Three and were promoted into Senior football for the first time in our history.
By 1991 with Hubbard and Walker both departed, there were a couple of flirtations with relegation back into Intermediate football. A huge cash injection by the now head of the FDM company Mr Rod Flavell in the mid-1990s led to an upturn in fortunes, promotion to the top league of Sussex county football, and a John O'Hara Cup Final victory. Investment was made in the club for a quest for a league title and promotion to the next tier of the football pyramid.
For the 2011–12 season, we were in Sussex County League Division Three. In 2011 we won the Division Three Cup Final at Fort Road, Newhaven, beating Rottingdean Village 1–0 with Steve Green and Wayne Bolingbroke at the helm.
Saltdean ladies are a newly established side who were created in the season of 2017/18. They are connected to Saltdean FC and have the full backing of the men’s team, playing and training at Hill Park. It was the first time in the clubs history that they had a ladies team and the club are now looking to progress and build the youth for the girls section. After recruiting many local players, the ladies competed in the SCWGFL in the 17/18 season where they finished in second position behind local neighbours, Newhaven Ladies. Saltdean Ladies gained promotion to the South East Counties Women’s League – Premier in 2018 and had a very successful year.
Gaining promotion yet again to step 5 in the women's pyramid but also lifting the League Cup trophy after beating Ashford 2-1 in the final. In the Summer of 2019 the club decided to change their name to Saltdean United Women FC in a statement to make a clear signal of togetherness and unity at the club but also keeping with modern day thinking on equality. The tigers will compete in the London and South East Premier in the season 19/20 competing against the likes of Fulham and QPR.
