Teams for everyone
We have ten sides for all abilities, genders and ages. Currently, we have eight mens teams that play across the Southern Amateur League, meaning players of all standards can find a suitable playing level within the club. The club at present runs eight men's teams in the Southern Amateur League playing 11 aside matches on a Saturday afternoon. Our 3 highest teams compete in London wide divisions and our 4s to 8s play in the South London divisions.
For over 35 year-olds, we also have a Vets team. We were immensely proud to also launch our Women's team, who are playing friendlies ahead of entering a competitive league for the 19/20 season.
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 CSSC Sports Ground, Chiswick every Wednesday from 7-8.30pm. All teams are welcome to train, the more the merrier! Winter training will be on a 3G pitch.
Women’s only training takes place at the same time on Mondays. We have 2 coaches running all of our sessions. Pre season begins in July.
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.
