Our Opponents

Egham Town FC was formed in 1963 with support from the local council to give them access to a recreation ground where they still play. After spells in local leagues they joined the Isthmian League system in 1977. They were moved into the Southern League in 2004, but slipped down into the Combined Counties League where they had a period under the management of ex-Diamond John Hamsher until late 2012. They won promotion back to the Southern League for the 2013-14 season.

Last season they finished in 15th place in the Southern League Division One Central.

Their website is here and their twitter feed here and they are managed by Gary Meakin. Their nickname is “The Sarnies” which appears to have originated from a simple play-on-words “Egham Sarnies”.
