At the Epsom & Ewell Sports Awards, 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, Basketball tickets to see London Lions and gym membership amongst others. We managed to raise £372 for a very worth 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.
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!
It is exciting to see such passion for sport in Epsom & Ewell. The awards demonstrate how various partners can work together to provide opportunities for people to engage in sport in the borough. Many activities would not be available if it were not for the willing coaches and volunteers and conversely there would be no need for coaches and volunteers if we did not have the athletes with a desire to participate in sport! The Sports Awards continue to be a celebration of that partnership.
Thank you to all our sponsors who supported the event and presented the awards.

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.
