About Fencibles AFC

Fencibles United AFC is one of the largest Football clubs in New Zealand. We are based in Pakuranga/Howick, Auckland, New Zealand. We have a long history of serving and representing the East Auckland community. Our roots go back to Pakuranga Town AFC and Howick AFC.

We support and provide Junior, Youth, Senior Men and Women grade soccer and at all levels. Riverhills Park is our main home ground. The Riverhills club room has bar service, big screen TV entertainment, and kitchen facility. Of course, we also have all the essentials such as changing rooms, showers, referee room, etc. Our main training facility is at William Green reserve, a fully lit state of the art artificial surface opened in 2013

Fencibles Organisational Structure


This new organisation chart now cleanly separates “On-field” & “off-field” roles so that we can maximise our focus.



Key decisions include:

  • A Project Manager Role to head up a team focusing on our buildings, the AMETI project and club assets.
  • The Director of Football will now be directly responsible for 1st team, Metro & Conference coaches (both Male & Female) incl. a focus on creating a woman’s pathway at the club.
  • We have highlighted (green) the positions where we are looking for experienced people to help fill these volunteer roles. If you would like to speak to someone about helping in these positions or any other positions please contact for a confidential chat.

We know that you know we know you want to volunteer! Hehehe.





Fencibles UFC Uniform

The new Nike Kit has been rolled out in recent seasons with all teams now adopting it following its launch in 2016 

Information for purchasing this is on the front page of the Fencibles Website and a uniform day is held close to season start date.

Some Senior Teams field an optional team away kit. These are approved individually by the board, they must have some historical connection with the club or its affiliates and feature the official Fencibles crest 

In the instance where the team you are playing has a similar uniform colour if you are the away team you must have a change of strip.  A spare set of shirts is held with the Youth Club Captain Jeannine Melville  Your team manager needs to make contact and collect a kit and return it clean on the following Monday.  Any un returned kits will be charged for so please ensure that you sign the book to confirm its return.

A full list of clashing clubs will be published prior to season start.

If you are in a team with numbered shorts you must provide your own away kit as the numbers on the shirts and shorts must match.  If you do not have numbered shorts and must have numbered shirts for your playing division a few sets of shirts with numbers are available.
