HI there, and welcome to our Storrington FC site.
To be clear, this won’t be an official site that is updated after every game (I haven’t got time for that). However I spent enough weeks when I was younger watching the team that, when I saw the site was available, I couldn’t help but buy it.
In 2004-05 a small team in Sussex did great things in bringing the Sussex County League Div 3 title home and I was there for a lot of the matches. I’ll bring some of the memories from that campaign hopefully as the site develops!
So – who are Storrington FC? Well, here are some details for you:
Storrington F.C. is a football club based in Storrington, near Horsham, West Sussex, England. They joined Sussex County League Division Two in 1976. Since then, they have been relegated to Division Three on three occasions, but have been promoted back to Division Two after a three-season spell in the lower division on each occasion. For the 2014–15 season, they are members of the Southern Combination Division One.
The club was officially formed in 1920 and started playing in the Worthing league then joined West Sussex League in 1973. The Swans then spent three seasons in the West Sussex League before being elected to join Division 2 of the Sussex County League in 1976. The club then spent the next 14 years in division two, during which time they twice achieved their highest placing of 4th.
In the 1989–90 season the club was relegated and over the next 12 seasons spent the time gaining promotion twice in 1993 and 1998 but relegated back down in 1995 and 2002. The club at the beginning of the 2002–03 season started building a new clubhouse and the club had to play a number of home games at opponents’ grounds due to the building work.
In the 2004–05 season the club gaining promotion to Division 2, but this time as champions of Division 3 for the first time in their history. The club has remained in division two since. The club has also used this stability to erect floodlights during the 2009/10 season.
For the 2011/12 season a new Management Team was put in place of James Baker and Nigel Dyer, and saw the team achieve a 9th place finish, sitting comfortably with the 8th and 7th finishes from the previous two seasons. At the end of the season James Baker quit Storrington FC to become manager of Worthing United.
In May 2015 Pete Matthews became the new manager as the club started life in a new division (the Southern Combinations League Div 1).
You can bet on Storrington to get promoted again this season as their squad takes shape for the new campaign.
