Ruishton Football Club started very informally in the spring of 2010 when a group of dads and their children gathered in the local park for a kick around on a Sunday morning. They soon realised that there was a demand for a football club in the village so they moved to Ruishton School so they could have two goals and a proper marked pitch.
The Dad's -v- Children match soon turned into a proper training session followed by a match.
Over the course of the summer more and more children started turning up and they eventually realised that if the club was to continue then it really needed to be formally setup. With 15 to 20 children turning up every week they finally registered with the Somerset FA in October 2010.
As the club grew we soon ran out of space at the school so moved back to the village park with two newly marked out pitches.
