Burgess Hill Town

Altrincham Club Crest image

After over a century of local football, Burgess Hill appeared to get a new driving force within the club and after a steady period of top six finishes under the managership of Jim Thompson from 1988 -1992, the club became a real power in the county.

A glorious seven year spell was enjoyed, with Alan Pook manager in four of the campaigns, when ‘The Hillians’ finished as runners up twice and actually won the title on five occasions, the last of which, in 2003, led to promotion into The Southern League.

After just one season, the league re-structuring took Burgess Hill across to the Isthmian League, where the club has consolidated in Division One South with Gary Croydon enjoying three spells as manager.
