Forrestfield United Soccer Club is one of the largest football clubs in Western Australia and continues to grow every year. The club provides competition, fun, fitness and development for players of all abilities and ages.
We start at 6 years old and we have players who are still playing in their 50’s. We have a mix of social, development pathway, Amateurs, Masters, Women and NPL teams. We truly are an inclusive club for all.
The highest level played at the club are the three NPL teams who play on Saturday.
In all, Forrestfield United Soccer Club has over 600 players and close to 800 adult members.
The continued growth of the club is a great tribute to the efforts of the committee, players and parents who all make FUSC the fastest growing sporting club in WA.
The club has a long history in WA football (soccer), and was originally known as Cottesloe SC when first admitted into the State League competition in 1962. Cottesloe SC then merged with SMA (Swan Migrant Association) in 1971 to become SMA Cottesloe SC. As SMA were based in the Ascot area it was decided to change the club name to Ascot Soccer Club” the following year.
In 1974 the club became WA Champions when we won the State Premier Division title by nine points. In 1978 Ascot won the last Ampol Cup, and that trophy is still proudly on display in the club house at Hartfield Park.
The latter stages of 1978 is probably the most significant part of the clubs history. Ascot SC entered into merger discussions with fourth division club, Kalamunda United SC, who were based at Hartfield Park, Forrestfield. A third small club called Manning Rovers also came into the mix because of requiring a home. The merger went ahead and we entered the State Competition in 1979 as Forrestfield United SC.
Ascot was a state league 1st div (premier) team at that time but were losing their ground to baseball and they did not have a junior base. Kalamunda had juniors, an amateur team and a ground.
The new Hartfield complex was being built and FUSC became part of the premises with our own clubroom.
All the lighting started with Forrestfield volunteers erecting 2 poles with 2 small rectangle lights close to Hale road. Those lights have long been replaced and 2018 will another improvement thanks to a $200k grant from Stephen Price MLA member for Forrestfield and the Department of Sport and Recreation.
The crest of The Club is a composite of the historic background of Ascot Soccer Club and Kalamunda United Soccer Club, the principal features being a lion rampant, a black swan, the Kalamunda Shire emblem (the Leschenaultia flower), and a representation of the three major hills – Kalamunda Hill, Gooseberry Hill and Lesmurdie Hill.
