IsthmIan League Division One South


For a club formed in 1881 and having experienced seasons competing in The West Sussex Senior League, The Sussex County League and the The Metropolitan, Corinthian and Athenian Leagues,  it is surprising that Horsham Football Club are one of the very few teams to have competed in just a single league for the last 35 years.

Joining the Isthmian League in 1973, ‘The Hornets’ fortunes have varied as spells in the first, second and third divisions haven’t brought many memorable league achievements, but in 2004, third place in Division One South led to an exciting season in Division One and promotion into the Premier Division as runners-up in 2006.

Horsham enjoyed six campaigns at this level, the highest in their history, and will be aiming to improve even further having recovered from relegation in 2012
