COLDEN COMMON PLAYERS

The club was founded in 1898 and re-formed in 1956, supported by the Banford family. Their Sunday league team, started in 1973, won numerous trophies before moving into Saturday football, and by the 198687 season had progressed to Hampshire League Division One. In 1992, they won the Hampshire League championship, a feat repeated in 1996, and won the Southampton Senior Cup in 1994. When the Hampshire League was reorganised in 1999, the club was placed in the Premier Division, at what was then level 9 of the English football league system, but was administratively relegated two years later because the ground failed to meet Premier Division standards. In 2004, they won the "double" of the Division One title, thus earning promotion to the Wessex League, and Hampshire Intermediate Cup. Unable to apply for admission to Wessex League Division Two because of the requirement for floodlights, Colden Common were placed in Division Three, and went on to win the division title. Having finished their programme, it was still possible for Hayling United to overtake them by winning their last four games with a 19-goal swing, but they were unable to do so. In 2007 they withdrew from the Wessex League, because their inability to develop their home ground made it impossible for them to progress up the leagues, and joined the Hampshire Premier League. They won their second consecutive Hampshire Premier League title in 2010.
