All home games are played at the Victory Sports Ground in Bury St Edmunds, a great facility offering a bar and refreshments where the whole club can enjoy matches on a Saturday.
Sporting 87 also have a great reputation for giving young players plenty of opportunities in the adult teams. Of the current First Team squad, 8 players played for a youth team at Sporting 87 before making the step into adult football.
There are also many more Reserve and A Team players who have come through the youth teams at Sporting 87.
Away from the competitive football on a Saturday, Sporting 87 also offers many opportunities to play football to keep fit or have fun. There is social football each week and walking football too. Sporting 87 also has a very active Ladies football team that trains regularly and plays matches against other local teams.
I have been part of the first team squad at Sporting for the last 4 years now and have known Jon (S87 Director of Football, Jonathan Warnock) for many years. The atmosphere around the club is unique to non-league football, players from across all three teams get on well and are close on and off the pitch. I was immediately overwhelmed by the welcome I received from the other lads and the coaching team when I first joined at the age of 18. There's something special about this club and I love spending my Saturday afternoons in this way.”
