Raising FundsMERU logo

At the Epsom & Ewell Sports Awards 2015, a raffle was held to help raise money for the local charity MERU (Medical Engineering Resource Unit). Prizes included an overnight stay at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, Premier League Football tickets, and a FREE gym membership amongst many others. The raffle raised an impressive £523 for a very worthy cause. MERU is a charity that exists to improve life for children and young people with disabilities by designing and custom-making specialist equipment for use at home, at school or college, in hospital or at play. MERU help when no readymade solution exists to meet a child or young person’s needs. For more information please visit their website

MERU and Epsom & Ewell Borough Council would like to say a massive thank you to all the local businesses who donated prizes so generously.

Formed in 1982, we endeavoured to establish a youth football club to cater for all ages and ability. Our emphasis then, and indeed now, was based on learning and enjoying our national sport. We believe we have gone a long way to achieve this goal. After more than twenty six years we have established a full range of youth teams from under 7 and under 17 to a club first team playing in the lower reaches of the football pyramid. We also have three Sunday adult teams.
