BRING US HOME!
We are your local non-league football club and have been for 103 Years, we want to come back to the borough. Our Vision is to create an inclusive community-based multi-sports complex for all. Epsom & Ewell Football Club was founded in 1918 making the club 103 years old. Our last home ground of 68 years was in West Street, Ewell which sadly, we vacated in 1993. We have not played in the Borough of Epsom & Ewell for 28 years and counting. Since then, we have been a nomadic club, playing at various different grounds outside the borough. Our intention now is to bring the club home to be at the heart of the community.
The aim is to establish a community focused Football Club & Sports Hub in the Borough for the provision of sports for the whole community to enjoy. We want to achieve and promote, not just a home for the football club, but an inclusive centre of excellence for all sports in the borough. We hope that this will encourage those who live or work in and around the borough to participate in a healthy lifestyle and improve mental wellbeing through participation in all sports. We have identified the Hook Road Arena as the only viable site in the borough suitable to accommodate our needs. The key to achieving our objective is to obtain permission from Epsom & Ewell Borough Council over the tenure of the site, be granted a lease and then gain planning permission to develop the site. Despite the difficulties and restrictions of the pandemic, the committee has been busy over the last 9 months and we are currently having informal discussions with Epsom & Ewell’s Head of Planning regarding the Hook Road Arena.
We are well advanced with our plans for the site and our partnership with the other sports bodies in the borough that will form part of this Community Development. Our progress depends on the outcome of our discussions with Epsom & Ewell Borough Council and their willingness to help and support us to achieve our goal.
