Fantastic to see our new SMFC Seniors’ team in action in Raynes Park on July 24th for their first official game, a pre-season friendly ahead of their debut season in the Southern Sunday League in September. 14 players, no hangovers and a 7-1 win! A big thank you to Barnes Stormers FC for hosting.

The Seniors’ team is a direct result of our Game of Two Halves Programme, run in partnership with the Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP). The programme was set up with the aim of raising awareness of key parenting and wellbeing issues highlighted in open discussion sessions. Outcomes included enhancing knowledge, relationships, helping future generations – along with supporting the ‘Elders” turn-up-and-play football group.

The Seniors team will also provide an additional exit route, alongside Tooting & Mitcham United FC, for 16+ SMFC players who want to continue playing after youth league football.
