FIRST TEAM 2017-18: Balham FC was formed in 2011 in order to provide player progression into open age football for the hugely talented, high achieving age group teams of Balham Blazers FC, which was founded by Greg Cruttwell in 2001. Having won back-to-back promotions in 2011/12 and 2012/13, Balham did the league and cup double in the Surrey South Eastern Combination in 2013/14. In 2014/15 Balham finished in a promotion position again, in the Surrey Elite Intermediate Football League, however promotion was denied due to Combined Counties League facility requirements not being met. Having moved to ground share with Cobham FC, in order to meet the facility requirements, Balham finished as runners up in the SEIFL in 2015/16 and as a result were promoted to Division One of the Combined Counties League for the 2016/17 season. The club had an exceptional first league campaign at Step 6, finishing in a promotion position for the sixth consecutive season and winning the London Senior Trophy. In 2017/18 Balham will be playing at Step 5 in the CCL Premier Division. Having begun on Wimbledon Extension, before moving to Cobham, Balham are currently ground sharing with Colliers Wood United at their Wibbandune Stadium..

In 2014/15 they were Central Division Winners, overall SYL Champions and SYL Challenge Cup Runners Up. In 2015/16 they were West Division Winners and overall SYL Runners Up.

PANTHERS TEAM 2016-17: In terms of performance it was another mixed season for Balham Panthers. As opposed to the previous campaign which started very well but tailed off towards the end, this time it started poorly but finished very well. The signs looking forward are encouraging though with good recruitment having taken place in the summer and pre season having started much earlier. The aim is to be more consistent from beginning to end and to push for promotion in 2016-17. The Panthers play in the Greater London Womens Football League Division 2 (South). During the season the squad trains on Wednesday nights at Kennington Park, Oval from 7.45pm and plays on Sunday afternoons at 2pm in South West London. If you are interested in joining and would like a trial please get in contact and join us at training to see if BPFC is the club for you.
