Hey guys, got a bit bored so thought I might start a story on a team from the Combined Counties League Premier Division! The team are called South Park FC (Nothing to do with the TV show!) and basically have no squad (No contracts). I was thinking of doing it as a newspaper report style like I used to with my Southampton story. Here is the history of South Park FC. By the way, it was copied from Wikipedia :-)




The club was founded in 1897 and joined the Redhill and District Football League as a founding member. The facilities of the club were very basic to start with, with the club playing on a sports field between Crescent and Church Roads. 1925 brought a partnership with the local cricket club which formed the South Park Sports Association, the aim of the association to improve athletic facilities for the two clubs and as a result the people of South Park.
The new association found suitable land on Whitehall Lane, the current home of South Park F.C., and purchased four acres through subscriptions and door to door collections. Further purchases of two and four acres respectively insured that the ground would remain a permanent sports home by vesting them to the National Playing Fields Association. The entire allotment was renamed "King George's Field" in 1935.
The club took a hit during and immediately after World War II, however an air raid shelter on King George's Field proved to be a defining feature of the landscape for the club in its rebound after the war. Donations ensured that amenities were added to the shelter, such as a clubhouse, showers and toilets, to provide the club much needed improvements to fulfil their sporting aspirations. After this period the club remained playing in the local leagues, where they achieved some success over the years.
In 2001, nearby club Reigate Town Football Club moved into South Park and merged with the current club. As a result, the club was renamed South Park & Reigate Town Football Club until 2003 when they reverted to South Park Football Club. Even more renovations were made to King George's Field with the installation of floodlights and new changing rooms.
2006 saw the club's promotion from the Crawley & District League to the Combined Counties Football League Division One. The club's first ever FA Vase match was held in 2008–09, a second qualifying round 2–1 home defeat to Shoreham.
In 2010, South Park participated in the FA Cup for the first time. They beat Greenwich Borough and Horsham YMCA to set up a tie with Cray Wanderers. That season also saw the club gain promotion to the Combined Counties Football League premier Division, and won a cup double of the Combined Counties Division one cup and the Surrey County premier Cup.
The club has since remained in the Premier Division of the Combined Counties League.
In the 2011-12 season South Park reached the last 32 of the FA Vase competition where they were eventually overcome by the holders Whitley Bay.
In the 2012-13 season the club achieved its best ever performance in the F A Cup, reaching the fourth qualifying round, where they were beaten 3-0 at home by Metropolitan Police F.C.

Walker Unveiled As South Park Manager


The Non-League Paper 15/7/12
By Darren Atkins

Ex-pro footballer Adam Walker has been unveiled as the new manager of Combined Counties League side South Park FC. The Surrey based team announced that 25 year old Walker would become the new manager just two days after sacking boss Joe McElligot. Walker played for teams such as Millwall, Stevenage and Cheltenham, making, overall, 27 appearances. Unfortunately for him, his promising career was cut short after a horrific injury left him without the use of his left leg for five months. He had been training for his coaching badges after recovering from the injury and this is his first job. In the press conference, exclusively attended by The Non-League Paper, he said "This club has a bright future ahead of it. I hope to take the team forward, pushing them to their limits and forcing them to work as hard as they can." When asked what he thought about the team, Walker replied "I will have to evaluate the squad fully before deciding to strengthen the areas required. I expect to sign the current team on short term amateur contracts and we will see how we get on from there!"

Pre-Season


Here are our results in pre-season!




Pre-season round-up: Not bad. For a team with barely any decent players we won three games at home which is a big positive and I am planning to make the home ground a fortress. Totton and Eling should have been a win in my opinion and I think we could have beaten Romsey Town as we got absolutely destroyed! Next update I will show you my team and tactics.

August Results


Here are my results for August!



Monthly review: Not a bad first month in charge of South Park FC. Only one loss in a month which is pretty good and I am hoping for a cup run in the EL Records Challenge Cup.
