Fulham FC Foundation
Fulham Football Club has been operating a community division for nearly 20 years as was officially awarded charitable status in 2005. The Foundation's mission of 'building better lives through sport' is consistently achieved through a number of projects, resulting in increased participation in high quality sport, an improvement in health and well-being which, in turn, contributes to a reduction in youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
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.
Epsom & Ewell Football Club
Epsom & Ewell Football Club started life in 1918 as Epsom Juniors Cricket Club but soon started playing football competitively, moving to West Street, Ewell in 1925 where they stayed until 1993. Presently the 1st team, who compete in the Combined Counties league, are ground sharing at Merstham FC, whilst the Reserves and Youth team play at Raynes Park Vale FC. There is also a thriving Colts section which is independently financed. One of the club's major achievements was playing in the first FA Vase final in 1975. Currently they are actively pursuing a new ground back in the Borough of Epsom & Ewell.
