A PARTNERSHIP agreement has been set up between AFC Solihull and Leafield Athletic FC and there will be an official launch day next Saturday, July 13, when the two clubs will meet in a pre-season friendly.

The match kicks off at 1.30pm at Rumbush Lane, Solihull, which will now be the home ground of both clubs.

The event is aimed at being a family day for all members of both clubs. This also includes the youth and junior players of Leafield Athletic FC along with the players’ families and supporters.

Admission is free for all to celebrate the official signing of the partnership agreement.

The agreement will see both clubs play their home fixtures at Rumbush Lane for future seasons. Leafield Athletic compete in West Midlands Regional League Division Two and AFC Solihull play in Midland Football League Division Two. Solihull won promotion as Division Three champions last season.

Leafield Athletic are the oldest non league football club in Solihull with a thriving youth and junior section.




The players of all teams, including both senior men’s teams are made up of many players from the Solihull community.

The partnership was also formed with the aim to provide a pathway for the development of the youth and junior players into a good standard of local semi-professional football.
