Blackfield and Langley

Currently Playing In:

Wessex League

 

After formation in 1935, the club played their first competitive football in The Hythe & District League before joining the Southampton Junior league and were offered a place in Division Three West of The Hampshire League in 1950-1951.

The club experienced mixed fortunes in the county competition, but the league’s restructuring in1980 enabled them to enjoy a Third Division place and promotion was quickly gained as runners-up in 1982. Three seasons later as champions of Division Two, the top Hampshire division was achieved, where the club remained, always finishing in the top ten, until being elected to join the newly formed Wessex League in 2000.

Initially Blackfield & Langley found life tough at this level, but in 2004 they were placed in a new Division One where the club rebuilt confidence and gained promotion to The Premier Division as runners up in 2009. and then, after a very shaky campaign in 2011-2012, they surprised most experts with a championship winning season.
