A Champions Club

Based in Battersea, South West London, Battersea Lions FC is a local football club created and run by Ricky Hammond. The Lions won their first Tandridge League trophy last season in 2012/13 when they completed the season as Champions of its Under-18 Division.  Rick, a fully qualified FA and EUFA football coach, had built the team over a three year period from Under-16’s in 2010/11. This achievement made the club very proud as the team were up against a number of significantly larger clubs.

For the 2013/14 season, our fourth year in the Tandridge League, we will be saying goodbye to a number of our older players,  many of whom will be going on to play for our adult team. We are recruiting new players to bolster the remaining Under-18 squad and look forward to another competitive season next year.

The club will be collaborating with Future Skills Training in the forthcoming season and in keeping with our partner’s objectives, we aim to develop each and every one of our players to maximise their abilities and help them realise their potential.  The ethos of the club is to develop a good collective team spirit and to play for each other. We also teach respect for opposition players and match officials.

We will play most of our home games on Wandsworth Common this season. We train on Wandsworth Common during the summer and  then at the Battersea Park all weather pitches as the autumn and winter months set in, (on Fridays at 5pm)

If you want to join a Champion’s club as an Under 18 player, please call Rick Hammond on 07983 729693.

Come on you Lions!
