Staines Town

Altrincham Club Crest image

In 1973 Staines Town became an Isthmian club and remained in the top London league until 2009. It’s true, that sounds a steady record but before that era ‘The Swans’ certainly took a long time to settle.

After formation in 1892 the club played in:

Great Western Suburban League
Hounslow & District League
Spartan League 1924-1935
Middlesex Senior 1943-1952
Parthenon League 1952-1953
Hellenic League 1953-1958
Spartan League 1958-1971
Athenian League 1971-1973
Isthmian League 1973-2009

One of the highlights in the clubs history was their appearance in an Anglo-Italian Barassi challenge cup which was won in 1975-1976.

The club has always given their managers good support and plenty of time to build a successful squad.  In 2008-2009, his sixth season, Steve Cordery took Staines Town into the Conference South where they are keen to consolidate.
