Established in 1959, Biggleswade United FC is a Bedfordshire-based Community Club, playing in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division.

In 2014, Guillem was invited by their then chairman, Chris Lewis, to become the Director of Football, and Guillem has never looked back.

Guillem went on to be appointed chairman of the club in 2018 and then, in one of the club’s proudest days, Biggleswade United became the only club in the area to be granted FA Charter Community Club status. Guillem described this as “unquestionably the best thing to have happened since I began my involvement with this wonderful club”.



As well as his career in Football, Guillem has also co-written and released songs with artists such as Best Boy Grip and King & Scholes. Have a listen to Guillem’s songs using the links below:
