Links United & Beechwood Community Football Club is a newly formed club, merging Beechwood FC - a youth football club in Edinburgh - and Links United AFC - a reputable amateur team in Edinburgh - to form a community football club that brings football and the community together.
Formed by Gary McCardle, Tom Chalmers and David Smith in 2012, the club is based at Tall Oaks and Gyle Park, with an influential presence on the Gyle Recreation Grounds Committee, which managed the Tall Oaks pitch and astrotruf that we use.
David Smith, Beechwood FC Club Founder, has been with the club for 27 years and he insists his original value of using football as a social tool is still relevant. We provide football to people who want to succeed in football, who want to make friends in football, who want to get off the streets, who want to be active. We offer football to anyone. But we also take our football seriously and provide players with the top level of coaching.
