Brookside Athletic Football Club

An introduction to Leicestershire’s fastest growing Football club based in Syston.
Brookside Athletic Football Club have only been in existence since 2020, starting with just one men’s football team. Since formation, this team have won three straight promotions and won a league cup.
At the start of the 2022/23 season, due to the success of our men’s section, we had large interest from female players, which lead to the birth of our first ladies team. In only their first ever season they gained promotion and reached the county cup final which is a huge achievement.
As the season 2023/24 came around we doubled in size adding a second men’s and ladies team. This is down to the impact the club has had on and off the pitch.
This news then lead to the club needing a new facility to play matches from and to call a home.
After a month of hard work and dedication from our backroom team, the club was able to call Memorial Park home.
The club would like to thank Catherine and Syston Town Council for being fantastic with this procedure and welcoming us with open arms. The club is absolutely delighted to call Memorial Park home.
The current campaign has started incredibly for all four of the teams at Brookside.
The men’s first team are currently fighting for a fourth straight promotion and are in a fantastic position to do so.
Men’s reserve team, in only their first ever season sit top of the league and remain in both cup competitions.
The ladies first team just like the men are fighting for a successive promotion to the women’s regional league which will qualify the team for the ladies FA cup.
The ladies development team in their first ever league campaign also sit top of the division and also remain in all cup competitions.
The club are also on the road in the summer as a club trip to Wrexham is planned.
Come on down to Memorial Park and support Syston’s biggest football club.
