Team Profile

Coney Hall FC was formed by Jeff Fowler 1972 with two Junior teams competing in the Shirley and District League and two senior teams competing in the Croydon Sunday League. The club continued to expand when Brian Downs joined as the under 11 manager in 1978, having previously run the successful Hawesdown School team. Brian Downs remains today as the Club Chairman.

In 1981 negotiations were entered into with the London Borough of Bromley for a lease to be granted at Tiepigs Lane and for some form of clubhouse to be constructed on the site with the facilities of a licensed bar. After a lot of hard work the lease was granted and planning permission was also granted for the clubhouse to be built in roughly the form that it is in today, but it was a long hard battle.

The building commenced in July 1983 and the main players of the construction team, along with Brian Downs, were Brian O’Leary, Mike Welch, Bill Whistler, Tony Rowbotham, John Walker, Graham Reading and Tony Smith and bearing in mind work was only carried out at evenings and weekends, the club was ready for opening on 24th January 1984.

Shortly after the opening of the club, approximately 18 months, an approach was made by Fairchilds Old Boys to bring along their Saturday side and with them joining the club a new era opened for Coney Hall Football Club, as Fairchilds brought along two Saturday sides competing in one of the local leagues and with a number of people playing prominent roles such as Eddie Mark and Peter Fieldwick and Michael Bedford.

Brian Downs role at the club still continues after 35 years as the president of the club and also the chairman of the disciplinary committee.

We are a progressive club offering football for players from ages 4 years old to adult. Coney Hall mini soccer school is held every Saturday morning along with several other junior teams training at the ground.

The Club is looking ahead for stability to future the needs of our kids by undertaking some massive ground improvements during the summer of 2013 where we hope will equip us to progress in the coming years including Astro turf facilities to also facilitate the local Community and Businesses.
