Walton and Hersham

Altrincham Club Crest image

After the merger of Walton FC and Hersham FC in 1945, Walton & Hersham FC worked their way through The Surrey Senior, Corinthian and Athenian Leagues before joining The Isthmian League, where they are still competing in Division One South.

Their highest Isthmian position was achieved in their second year of membership in 1972-1973, when there was only one Isthmian Division but it included the very best amateur players in the South of England.

The Surrey club had enjoyed the early seventies as one of the leading amateur sides in the country and a Wembley victory in the FA Amateur Cup really hit the headlines in 1973. The club have a long list of well known managers have who provided three spells for ‘The Swans’ in The Premier Division, since their first promotion in 1994, and are considered one of non-league football’s ‘sleeping giants’.
