Description

We are Thorntonians Football Club and our 7 adult mens teams are looking for new players to join us.

We have open training sessions at 8pm on Thursday nights in Earlsfield, SW18 4SS. We also have pre-season friendlies throughout August and early September each Saturday.

For more information and to contact us please reply to this ad or visit our website.
Or check out our socials: Facebook/Twitter/Instagram: @oldthorntoniansfc

Who are we?

Formed in 1928 Old Thorntonians FC are an FA Chartered Standard club with 7 successful Saturday 11-a-side teams playing in Europe’s biggest adult football system, the Amateur Football Combination. Our 1st team play in the AFC Premier Division, the highest level of amateur football in the UK at the equivalent of Step 6 in the football league pyramid. We also have a +35 Vets team playing on Saturdays approximately once a month.

Who are we looking for?

• Committed and quality new players of any playing position, aged 18+
• Someone who is sociable, enjoys the camaraderie and a strong team spirit that goes hand in hand with any successful football club
• We are an ideal club for local youngsters looking to move into adult football and university graduates who have just moved to London, with reduced half price match fees and no annual registration fees for under 23s.
• Step 5/6 level players who maybe want a fresh start still wanting to play a very high standard of football with great facilities, but without committing to as much travel and midweek games.

What do you get in return?!

• Qualified coaches for both outfield players and goalkeepers.
• Training takes place on Thursday evenings at one of south London’s best all weather 4G floodlit pitches – the Aspire, based at Southfields Community College – a 5 minute walk from Earlsfield train station (4 minute train from Clapham Junction) or Southfields tube (District Line).
• Dedicated training sessions for goalkeepers
• Opportunities to progress – you play for the club, not a single team, so you are always able to move up the teams, as your on-field performances and dedication merit it.
• We’re a very sociable club. There are always plenty of lads going for post-match beers whether playing home or away.
• Regular official club socials including a Christmas Quiz and annual awards day, as well summer tours to play other football teams; recent tours include The Algarve, Berlin, Galway, Nice, Tilburg, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Gibraltar and Malta.
• Old Thorntonians branded Nike tracksuits and training kit available from our very own online club shop.
• Strong social media presence, to keep you informed of everything going on at the club.

We play on Saturday afternoons at Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields in Roehampton (SW15 3PQ) with exclusive use of high quality pitches, changing facilities and our very own clubhouse bar to socialize in after games (its where the old Wimbledon FC 'Crazy Gang' used to train!). We even brew our own beer which you can drink there - Old Thorntonians Pale Ale!!

We look forward to hearing from you about joining us in our quest for more silverware in 2024/25 and the seasons ahead!

Cheers

Old Thorntonians FC

Perfectly located for players based in Earlsfield, Wimbledon, Tooting, Putney, Clapham, Brixton, Wandsworth, Barnes, Colliers Wood, Kingston, Roehampton, Merton, Lambeth, Croydon and beyond!
