About Feltham FC
The name Feltham Football Club has been soreley missed by a number of former players and supporters and because of this, we've decided to bring the name back!

Starting with season 2021-22 we will be running youth teams to get the ball rolling(!) and hope to have adult teams going forwards in future seasons.

More updates will be added to the website in due course. In the meantime, don't forget to click on the club history tab above to see more on this site...


Designed by fan Rob Healy - the updated Feltham FC crest sees the familiar blue and white and of course the Tudor Rose, completed by the addition of the Middlesex coat of arms.

Club History


Feltham Football Club was founded in 1946 as Tudor Park FC and competed under that name until the end of season 1962-63 when the name Feltham was adopted upon being granted Senior Status by the Middlesex County Football Association.

Tudor Park played at Rectory Meadow in Hanworth, and also at the Remo Depot in Feltham, whilst Feltham FC played on the Glebelands playing fields before moving into Feltham Sports Arena in 1963. The Arena’s grandstand was opened in 1966 by former club President and Mayor of Hounslow, Edward Pauling JP.

For their first three seasons, Tudor Park were members of the West Middlesex Sunday Football League but in 1949-50 became affiliated to the Middlesex County Football Association and played Saturday football under the County’s jurisdiction as members of the Staines and District League and in turn were elected to the Parthenon League.

Feltham had their first taste of senior soccer from 1963-64 in the Surrey Senior League in which they had a successful five-season spell. In 1968, Feltham moved up the Semi-Professional ladder and became members of the Spartan League, replacing Petters Sports.

During their first season, Feltham were within five minutes of winning the championship when they were leading by 2 goals to 1 against fellow championship-chasers Vauxhall Motors. With time running out, the Motormen equalised to obtain the point needed and snatch the title from Feltham in the last game of the season.

After a few lean seasons the club were promoted to the Athenian League in 1973 after finishing 3rd, but success within the Athenian League was hard to find as the club struggled in the lowe parts of the league table throughout its four-year spell.

In 1977, Feltham along with fifteen other member clubs resigned from the Athenian League to join the newly-formed Second Division of the Isthmian League. Feltham had achieved its goal in reaching the top-flight in semi-professional football.

Season 1980-81 saw the club’s biggest achievement, when they won the Second Division Championship in a tight battle to the last after securing maximum points in the very last game of the season at Barton Rovers. In 1984, Feltham became one of only a handful of clubs to play on an artificial pitch although this later had an impact on FA cup competitions.

In 1983-84, Feltham dropped back into Division Two South of the Isthmian League and in turn, they transferred to Division 3 in 1992 after the league was again restructured. (They were to stay in this division until 1995, when due to new league rulings about ground grading, they were forced to resign).

The mid-to-late 1980s saw Feltham amongst the front-runners and success was achieved again in cup competitions with the Southern Combination Cup (twice) and the Middlesex Summer Cup. At the start of the 1990s, Feltham underwent many changes on and off the field and the club found this hard – although the results were often missing; the commitment, attitude and honour were always there to be seen.

A merger with local Southern League side Hounslow took place in 1991 to become Feltham & Hounslow Borough but this proved disastrous for the club’s fortunes and the name was eventually changed back to Feltham FC.

Season 1995-96 saw Feltham move to the Premier Division of the Combined Counties Football League due to the restructuring of pyramid football. The following year saw Feltham defeat Godalming & Guildford 5-1 in the League Cup Final.

Silverware was won again in season 2002-03 when the club won the Middlesex Senior Charity Cup, beating Northwood 2-0 in the final. The Blues completed the double that season, winning the George Ruffell Memorial Shield in an enthralling 6-5 win after extra-time against Hendon.

Constant vandalism of the ground saw the club move from Feltham Arena in 2004 and initially ground share with local clubs Egham Town, Hampton & Richmond Borough and Bedfont.

At the end of Season 2005-06, despite other clubs resigning, Feltham were relegated into Division One of the Combined Counties League. Their first season saw them finish in 9th place. They won the Middlesex Premier Cup in 2006-07. Further seasons saw the club finish in mid to low positions and 2009-10 saw the side unsettled by management changes which resulted in the club finishing 20th – just avoiding relegation. Feltham’s Reserve team lifted the Jeff Nardin Reserve Division Cup that season.

Fortunes were of a similar keel in 2010-11, which resulted in the club finishing in sixteenth place. Season 2011-12 saw manager Wayne Tisson back at the helm. The Division 1 structure now included Guernsey FC which saw Feltham play their first away ‘international’ in a number of years.

Despite a very promising start which saw the Blues attain 15 out of a possible 21 points, their form slipped and the club found itself in a mid-table position, finally finishing in 13th place. The Blues won the Middlesex Premier Cup for a second time in 2012-13.

Early hopes of resurrecting Feltham Arena fell to the wayside due to planning constraints and the club became settled at The Orchard. It was announced in May 2012 that Feltham would be joining forces with landlords Bedfont Football & Social Club to form a new club, Bedfont and Feltham FC. As Feltham's 1st XI had already entered the FA Vase for season 2012-13, the club had to wait until 2013-14 to fully adopt the new name. Bedfont and Feltham FC have continued to play in the Combined Counties Football League.

In early 2021, former Feltham players and staff were keen to resurrect the name of Feltham Football Club and early motions are currently in place to do this.

An updated version of the Feltham FC crest was unveiled by fan Rob Healy, incorporating the familiar blue and white, the Middlesex coat of arms and of course, the Tudor rose. Russell Grant, President and Patron of the Middlesex Federation said he was "delighted to see the Middlesex crest underneath the Tudor rose" and wished the club good luck.
