Blackfield & Langley F.C. are a football club based in the village of Blackfield, Hampshire. Their first FA Cup appearance was in 2001 when they were knocked out in the preliminary round. They are currently members of Wessex League Division One. They play at the Gang Warily Ground in Blackfield. Their colours are green and white and their local rivals are Fawley and Hythe & Dibden.On 3 May 2007, it was announced that former Southampton player Jon Gittens had been appointed as the first team manager.

Stadium: Blackfield play on a pitch behind a large Community Centre in Blackfield. The view is dominated by the massive Esso refinery at nearby Fawley, but it’s not a bad little ground for all that; rather functional but perfectly adequete for this level of the pyramid. One of the problems of being so close to a Community Centre is ... the local community. There are skateboarding facilities for the local youth set a little bit behind the near goal, but it would appear some of the less desirable elements prefer to congregate within the stand and vandalise the seats. As one would expect from such a venue, car parking is plentiful.

Ground: Gang Warily Community & Recreation Centre Newlands Road, Fawley, Southampton SO45 1GA 07881 991013

Directions: Leave M27 at J2 following signs for A326 Fawley. After several roundabouts, pass Holbury Public House then take right fork at roundabout signed Lepe & Fawley. At 1st set of traffic lights turn left then left again into ground.
