Woodham Victoria Football Club
We are Woodham Victoria Football Club. We have been playing in the Surrey and Hants Border Football League since the 2015/16 season when we were playing in the fourth division, finishing third in our debut season resulting in promotion. The leagues have since been restructured and we currently play in the second division. Our league season runs from September to April/May and we play our home matches at West Byfleet Park. Our ground is a short distance from the Social Club and would always encourage anyone to come down to watch us play, although we cannot promise Premier League standard football sadly.
The squad is primarily made up of local lads, the majority of which have been playing football with each other for over a decade beginning in youth football for New Haw Boys. We have a very close knit group of friends which is one of our greatest strengths as a team, the greatest strength of ours being our ability to drink a bar dry, no doubt what we will be trying to do most Sundays this season at the Social Club after our games!
In the 2017/18 season we got our hands on our first piece of domestic silverware, lifting the Prince Albert Cup. This is one of the three trophies which we have won which are currently above the bar at the Social Club. The other two trophies were won on our annual football tour to Torrevieja in South-East Spain, where we play against local sides and enjoy the occasional beer. The games we play whilst in Spain have been in various formats over the years, ranging from a 6-a-side tournament to an 11-a-side match. We have two trophies above the bar in the Social Club from our continental victories whilst in Torrevieja to add to our Prince Albert Cup Trophy. We are hoping to add further trophies to the trophy cabinet at the Social Club in the coming years!
We partake in many charity events throughout the year as a club as well, including but not limited to an annual Swimathon at Woking Leisure Centre in aide of a variety of local charities organising by the Woking Rotary Club. We usually play a charity friendly ahead of the season as well in support of various charities.
All of us at Woodham Victoria F.C. would like to thank everyone at West Byfleet Social Club for all of their support and help over the past year, and we look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial relationship for years to come!
