The Essex village of Doddinghurst is situated about four miles north of Brentwood and
football has been alive and kicking in the village for many years.
Early records dating back to 1947 show the existence of two rival village teams, the first playing
on land known as 'Parkwood', the second playing opposite the village Post Office.
By 1952 a youth team had been formed and this played in the Romford League, under the title 'Doddinghurst
Rovers'. By 1962 the team had moved to the Pope and Smith League, playing under the name of 'Doddinghurst
Youth', on a pitch at the rear of the Village Hall. In 1978 Doddinghurst Olympic Football Club was born,
initially as a senior side, but by 1983 included a further nine youth teams.
Today, Doddinghurst Olympic Football Club consists of 3 senior sides, 11 youth teams and a flourishing
soccer school. All of our teams are affiliated to the Essex County Football Association and we remain at our home
ground - The Village Hall Playing Fields. In total, we provide facilities and the opportunity, for people between
the ages of four and forty nine to play in our club colours of green and yellow.
This season we have two veterans teams who play on Saturday afternoons in the Greene King Essex Veterans League.
We are attempting to play an ever increasing role in our local community. In doing so, sponsorship plays an
important role in helping to ensure the financial viability of this club and we are grateful for the assistance provided
by our sponsors. If you, your company or employer would like to support our endeavours, or to find out more information
