Maldon Saints was founded in 1970 by our current Club President Albert Kilby. In the 70’s youth football teams were not as prolific as today, so Albert, decided to increase the number of teams in the area by one, not realizing at the time just what he was starting.
The Master of the Gables Boys Home in Maldon, saw the benefits of this scheme to his boys and sent a number of them along to Albert for training and also provided the team’s first kit.
After a few friendly games at the Warren, the team moved to Promenade Park when Maldon Borough Council provided a pitch adjacent to the tennis courts. The changing room was an octagonal shelter, with the upper portion being glazed all round. This was replaced and restructured into the current Clubhouse.
46 years later, MSYFC has an adult team, 14 mini soccer and youth teams, a girls’ team and run a Soccability programme. Membership is in excess of 300 which is expected to rise considerably in the future
