Woodham Victoria Football Club
Football Joy at the Prince Albert Cup
"Woodham Victoria Football Club was founded in 2015 and we have been lucky enough to call West Byfleet Social Club our spiritual home since 2017 when we were first invited to come along and sample the sweet amber nectar on offer. You can usually see various members of the team occupying the area next to the jukebox for between two and eight hours on a Sunday as well as being able to see our beautiful home jersey framed on the wall by the television.
We hope that everyone at the social club are still happy for us to prop up the bar most weekends (and very frequently other days of the week coinciding with whenever there is football on TV!). The fact that we had a member of our squad working behind the bar at the club shows how intertwined the Social Club and football club are!
The league season runs from September to May and Woodham’s home matches are played at West Byfleet Park. The squad is primarily made up of local lads, the majority of which have been playing football together for over a decade – with a significant number of the team playing their youth football together for New Haw Boys. The team compete in the Surrey & Hants Border League structure, with the 2022/23 season being particularly successful for us as we won the second division to gain promotion to the top division. In addition to the recent league triumph the club won also won the Prince Albert Cup in the 2017/18 season at Abbey Rangers Football Club, with further successes coming in various tournaments whilst on tours in Spain. All of the Silverware the club has won is proudly displayed above the bar at the social club and hopefully we continue to add further silverware to the display!
All of us at Woodham Victoria F.C. would like to thank everyone at West Byfleet Social Club for all of their support and over the years, it makes us all very proud to have our home shirt that the Social Club gifted us on display. We are all very much looking forward to continuing our strong relationship for years to come!"
