Badshot Lea history

Early history suggests that the village football club was formed in 1904, after a meeting at the local village hall. They initially played friendly matches before deciding that they affiliate to the Surrey County Football Association in 1907. They began life in the junior leagues before gradually progressing through the leagues. The most recent history shows the Lea playing in the Aldershot leagues and progressing through the various divisions, eventually obtaining promotion to the Surrey Intermediate League Western in 1978. Progress through the three divisions saw the Lea eventually promoted to the Surrey Premier League in 1986. This was for one year only as we obtained the dubious distinction of being relegated with the highest points total ever achieved by a side being relegated.

Season 1988 saw us again in the Surrey Intermediate League Western. The ensuing years saw the ups and downs that one experiences until season 2002/03 which saw eventual promotion to Senior Football via The Hellenic League. This was not without its problems as The FA at Soho Square tried to block the move. It was only the determination of the committee and the full backing of The Hellenic League that eventually saw us given the green light along with London APSA (Essex Senior League) and Sporting Bengal

(Kent League). In our first season we took time to adjust to Senior Football eventually finishing 4th from bottom under the guidance of manager Maurice Gregory. Season 2004/05, David Ford took over the management reigns with Nathan Fealey and in their first season took the side to a credible 7th place finish. Season 2005/06 saw the 1st team finish mid table and reach two cup finals. They narrowly lost out to Sandhurst Town in the Aldershot Senior Cup on penalties but beat Penn & Tylers Green in the Hellenic Supplementary Cup. 2006/07 saw them yet again lose out on penalties in the Aldershot Senior Cup this time against Camberley Town. On the league front they produced some fantastic football all season and after chasing Bisley Sports for most of the season ended up finishing in 3rd place. The 3rd place finish was enough to enable up to take up a promotion position and with a groundshare secured with near neighbours Farnborough we were able to do so. 2007/08 season under the guidance

of Dave Ford we finished our first season at Step 5 in a respectable 11th place and beaten finalists in the Aldershot Senior Cup losing by the odd goal against Fleet Town. The National League’s Committee then sanctioned a move to the Combined Counties Premier League for season 2008/09 where they swapped places with Reading Town. Season 2009/10 saw us reach the 2nd qualifying round of the FA Cup as well as reaching the 3rd round proper of the FA Vase. We also reached the Semi Final of the Surrey Senior Cup beating Woking on the way. Eventually losing to Sutton Utd. Season 2010/11 saw us finish 6th in the league and finally win the Aldershot Senior Cup defeating Fleet Town on penalties. Season 2011/12 saw us finish in a disappointing league position, the lowest at Step 5. We still managed to get to a Cup Final at Aldershot Town, where we lost out to Ashford Town (Middx) in The Aldershot Senior Cup Final. Season 2012/13 saw Mark Anderson replace Dave Ford as manager and he finished in an excellent 7th place and also led the team to the FA Cup 3rd Qualifying round  where after beating Ryman League sides Folkestone Invicta and Premier side Leiston, finally lost out to Southern Premier side Chippenham Town. Mark Anderson resigned for personal reasons

 in July 2013 and the club appointed Ryan Scott and Nick Sowden

as joint managers. In November 2013 Trevor Norris was appointed and he steered us to a safe position at the end of the 2013/14

season. In September 2014 Trevor Norris resigned his position as manager and was replaced by Mark Thomas. He was joined by

James Reeves and Coach Darren Barnard. An excellent run of

results left us finishing in a very credible 8th position. In September 2015, ex-Hartley Wintney manager, Ben Dillon replaced Mark Thomas and with him comes Jason Minton and Steve Saunders as part of his management team. In July 2016, ex-Reading player Neville Roach took over the management role and bought with him Matty Angell and the experienced Mick Wollen. In October 2016, Neville resigned his position and joined Basingstoke Town as their new U21 manager. The club appointed new Manager Michael Charles, who along with his assistant/coach Darryl Jelly and Luke Wheeler. Sadly, we lost our Step 5 status at the end of the season and found ourselves in Step 6. For season 2017/18 we started a groundshare arrangement at Camberley Town whilst our new ground is under construction. In October 2017, Michael Charles resigned and we turned to  ex-manager Mark Thomas who successfully led us to immediate promotion back to the Premier Division at the end of the 2017/18 season. Sadly, Mark had to resign his duties and after an extensive search and interview process, we appointed the successful Keith Hills, from fellow Premier Division team, Knaphill to lead us back  into the Premier Division for season 2018/19. In December 2018 we appointed a management team of Gav Smith/Dave Ford as Joint Manager’s along with Paul Harkness as coach and Dan Bailey as assistant. They galvanised the squad and finished in an excellent 9th place. In season 2021/22 we finished in the highest position of 5th in the Combined Counties Premier Division South and also were the only team to win in Jersey in the league. In 1997 the  first Youth Team joined the Club and this saw the beginning of the very successful Youth and Colts section of the Club. We increased from one team to over 20 and were given extra facility to accommodate this success.
