In 1888 St Andrew’s football team played their inaugural football match against Eton Mission in Lambeth Palace Fields – we won 1-0.
132 years later our football provision is still very much part of our Club programme and we are pleased to report we are still winning matches!
Football is an excellent team building activity. Members have to take great responsibility for themselves and their team mates. Dedication to the game, and the team, is essential, and members have to be committed to attending training during the week and committing a day of their weekends to matches.
Playing football is an excellent form of physical activity – and through our programme our members keep fit; off the pitch, Managers encourage members to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
