After formation in 1906 this Surrey club has played in local football for the majority of its competitive life. The Surrey Intermediate League (1962-1982) was followed by The Surrey Premier League (1982-1986) and then, as ambitions developed, the club moved up to compete in The Combined Counties League where Chipstead must have been one of the country’s most consistent clubs.

In their first sixteen seasons at this higher level ‘Chips’ never finished below eighth position they won the league in 1990 and often contested the League Cup Final. Long serving manager John Sears certainly created a club who were highly regarded in the home counties and Steve Bangs carried on the consistent run.

However, although promotion to the Isthmian League was achieved in 2007, the club experienced a period of inconsistent managerial appointments, which didn’t help the club to settle happily in the senior league until Mark Tompkins took over and helped the club consolidate at the highest level in its history.
