About Us

Southall FC was formed in 1871 and played its first game at Southall Park versus Uxbridge in October 1871. Southall FC is a club with a long and rich history, one that the town can be proud of, with players such as Alan Devonshire, Ted Bennett, Sir Les Ferdinand, Gordon Hill going on to play internationally, with many more following in their footsteps into professional football.

The club is one of the oldest in the country and will be celebrating its 150th anniversary in the 2021 season. The club wants to mark this milestone by holding events, charity matches, and also publish a mini-book on history the club.

The club is also in progressive negotiations with the local authority regarding potential sites so that we can bring the football club back home to Southall. The previous ground on Western Road was sold off for development in the early 1990’s since when the club has been ground sharing at various other clubs. Southall has a diverse population with so many nationalities, making such a unique, vibrant town. The High Street is blessed with many independent businesses enjoying an array of colourful clothing stores, exotic food shops, and restaurants. Sadly, whilst Southall FC has been away from the town, many generations have missed out on being part of the club and understanding its history, and special place in the heart of our community.

Southall FC has exciting plans to host events in the coming year to celebrate the 150th anniversary of our historic club and to build momentum towards bringing it back to where it belongs – in Southall. We have plans to build a sporting complex so that Southall FC is able to play in its hometown again, bringing in new supporters from the immediate and surrounding areas. More than that, we’d like to build a facility that can be a hub for sports projects, school use and educational programmes, too – an asset that the whole community can enjoy.

The committee have set up this campaign page to help raise funds so that we can achieve our goals (pun intended) by celebrating our 150th anniversary in style, and progressing our development plans.

Help us to wake this “sleeping giant” of a club. Please donate what you can - however big or small, it all helps. And whether or not you donate, please share this page with your friends, family, businesses near and far, and associates across the world so that they can be part of the Southall FC family!

Thank you,

The Committee of Southall FC

Beechen Cliff School PTA

We can’t do the following on our own, so we need your help. (Please) Supporting the children and families of Beechen Cliff School. The PTA is proud to launch this crowdfunding appeal to help our school in supporting those families most affected by this pandemic. It will take time for Covid restrictions to be lifted and we have identified three key areas where supporting our school is most urgently required. 1. Mental healthWe aim to raise £5000 to support the mental health services offered to the Beechen Cliff School Community. We would like to support the ongoing vital work for the ‘Solution-Focused Mental Health Programme’. This was launched in June 2020 for families and staff adversely affected by the pandemic. A need has been identified amongst 10% of our parent body who replied in the first wave of communication and are actively seeking support with their own and their family’s mental health. Lessening anxiety and depression within a family setting, will help to improve the pupil’s chance of achieving a good academic education whilst remote learning. 2.  Laptops We aim to raise £5000 to buy laptops and IT equipment. In this way we can provide practical support for our students who still do not have sufficient access to a laptop or adequate connectivity to be effective home learners. The provision of good technical support is essential in developing learning and ensuring that they are able to progress in line with their peers. 3. Clubhouse We aim to raise £10,000 The PTA funded a new all-purpose school clubhouse successfully installed as a shell just before the first lockdown. However, work still needs to be completed including the provision of running water, drainage facilities and electricity. During  September -December 2020 the clubhouse was used as an emergency satellite canteen to feed the masses. Supporting these vital works will bring immediate benefits in covid times and longer term resourcing for the wider community, in both social and sporting terms, as a fully functioning school facility. To ensure a level educational playing field, the PTA is starting this crowdfunding campaign now to help support every member of our community navigate the implications of the pandemic lockdowns and uncertainty. So why Crowdfunding? It’s a great way to achieve a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds into the same pot and encouraging others to do the same. The larger the group or ‘crowd’ formed, the more money we raise so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks – social media including messaging apps like What’s App. Please help us to make this possible by donating what you feel comfortable giving and please pass on the appeal details on your own social media network to family, friends and your other contacts to help spread our message. This is really important within our local community. Every single donation helps and every single share helps too! To set up a regular donation, please click on the DONATE button. You can choose how much to donate each month, and we can also claim Gift Aid on your donation, boosting it by 25%. This can be cancelled and controlled by yourself, at any time should your circumstances change. Of course, Regular Giving may not suit everyone, so if you prefer, you can choose to make a one-off donation to help fund our vital wish list of projects. Thank you so much for your support of the PTA and for sharing this campaign.
