Barkingside Promotion

This coming autumn will see the start of the 2013/14 football season and will be Barkingside Football Club’s first season at Ryman League level. Last season saw the team enjoy possibly the greatest season in the club’s 115-year history as they secured a stunning 9-1 Essex Senior League cup final win over Bowers & Pitsea to go with a club-best runners-up place in the Essex Senior League behind fellow-promoted Burnham Ramblers.

It was truly a heroic effort by everyone at the club from chairman Jimmy Flanagan, to manager Matt Frew and the brilliant players, right down to the staff and the fans. It was a feat few would have imagined occurring at the start of the season as the team kept plugging away with great results being matched by great attacking performances. Truly everyone played their part in 2012/13 and now so can you!

Barkingside FC are proud to announce a society which will be known as the ‘Friends of Barkingside FC’ which will aim to strengthen the football club and reward the club’s supporters (new, present and old).

The club believe it is important to move forward into a new era to help secure the club’s future and it will be important to build on existing relationships in and within our community and to build on them to improve all aspects of the club.

The primary goal of the Friends of Barkingside FC is to help those who run, administer and play for Barkingside. These objectives include its existence and well-being, and to promote the club’s activates in an open and friendly manner to help improve the club’s standing in and around the local community.
