Banstead Athletic

Currently Playing In:

Combined Counties Division One


A club that emerged after The Second World War playing as Banstead Juniors in the Epsom & Ewell League, before moving through The Sutton & District Competition and into The Surrey Intermediate League as Banstead Athletic in 1947.

Two years later the club were given senior status as a Surrey Senior League club and then in 1965-1966, the ‘A’s ‘ joined The Spartan League where they enjoyed a successful period which enabled them to be accepted by The Athenian League in 1979.

Five years later when the Athenian League closed down, Banstead were elected to the Isthmian League Division Two South and remained an Isthmian club until 2006. The club found football at this level difficult despite the inspiration of an FA Vase Semi-Final in 1997.
However, long serving manager Bob Langford kept the club competitive, until in 2006, the club decided to cut costs and join the very local Combined Counties competition where sadly, they have now slipped into Division One.
