SOUTHALL FOOTBALL CLUB

32 Lyndhurst Avenue, Southall UB1 3DU
Sports Club

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

St Mark's School Bath - love learning!

    #remotelearning Urgent Chromebook Appeal   Here at St Mark’s in Larkhall, Bath we are launching a Regular Giving campaign to raise funds to improve the environment and facilities that our wonderful school offers. In support of our school vision: ‘St Mark’s vision is to promote self-worth that inspires our students to live well, achieve their goals and be a force for good in their school and in the world.’ Love Learning – Love Life Now our more generic appeal has become more urgent as it is necessary to provide the tools for home learning for the majority of our students. To bridge the digital divide, which exists in most school cohorts, we are launching this appeal to purchase as many £200 Chromebooks as we can, by the end of January. This is to provide the much needed resource for ALL our students to be able to access the on-line lessons they need to thrive in school. So why crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is a great way to hit a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds in to 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. Please help us to make this possible by donating as much as you can 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 could also claim Gift Aid on your donation, boosting each one by 25%. 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 wish list of projects. Thank you for your support! It will really make a difference to the quality of home learning.
