Teams for everyone
We have twelve sides for all abilities, genders and ages. Currently, we have nine men's teams that play across the Southern Amateur League playing 11 aside matches on a Saturday afternoon, meaning players of all standards can find a suitable playing level within the club. Our 4 highest teams compete in London wide divisions and our 5s to 9s play in the South London divisions.
For male over 35 year-olds, we also have a Vets team competing in the Southern Amateur League with one game a month and for over 38 year-olds we compete on a fortnightly basis in the West London Vets League. We were immensely proud to also launch our Women's team in 2018/19, the team has made great progress and compete in the Greater London Women's football league with games on Sundays, 2pm kick offs for home games.
Players can join at any point in the season. All players need to be registered with the league and also join the Civil Service Sports Council www.cssc.co.uk
We are fortunate to have a fantastic riverside development just over Barnes Bridge in Chiswick, with 6 pitches excellently maintained by our full time groundsman and a recently refurbished clubhouse. Good transport links means the club is only 20 mins from central London. After the game there are plenty of excellent riverside pubs in which to conduct the post match analysis!
Training sessions every week
Mens training takes place at the Kings House Sports Ground, Chiswick every Wednesday from 7-8.30pm which planneed sessions run by qualified coaches. All players are welcome to train, the more the merrier! Training is always on a 3G pitch.
Women’s only training takes place at the same time on Thursdays. We have 2 coaches running all of our sessions.
The years leading up to the First world war were the most successful in the clubs history, winning the Middlesex Senior Cup in 1908 and 1913, the Southern Amateur League two years running from 1912-3 to 1913-4 and the AFA Senior Cup in 1910 - which was coincidently won again in 1920 and 1930. The clubs modern successes came with two league triumphs in 1968-9 and 1970-1, having first won the SAL title in 1937-8, all the club's honours are here.
In 1989 and 1990 the first XI gave the club a reminder of those halcyon FA Cup runs against professional sides in the early part of the century. In the 1988-9 London Senior Cup competition service disposed of two Spartan league sides and Vauxhall league side, Feltham, before narrowly losing to cup holders Fisher Athletic, of the Vauxhall Conference.
The bar is where all teams get together, presentations take place, and tales are told. We have many events and parties to mark important times in the season such as the start, Christmas (it would be rude not to) and the end of season bash. The Kings House Grounds' bar is open after training sessions on Wednesdays and match days.
