History of the Club


North Merchiston Boys Club was formed in 1921 as part of the local community and offered a range of activities, including football.

Football is now (and we hope will always be) a very big part of our Club. We’ve been lucky to have some very good players pass through our Club and we like to think there will be more very good players in the future.

As a Club we have become known for our youth football and recently started a Soccer School for players between 8 and 13 years. When the School started in 2008, we had six players, two coaches and half a dozen balls. Today we have over 60 kids, ten sfa qualified coaches and a fully equipped coaches room.

Our ambition at the Club is to have a team playing football at every age group from under 9’s to under 21’s and to have all our coaches fully syfa qualified up to and beyond level 3.

What we offer at North Merchiston FC is a fun filled place where everyone can come and learn football played the right way and in the right manner.

Fulfilling a dream is very hard work but hopefully, this is Where it all Begins!
