Thinking of Joining the Eds?

3 years ago By James Nurse

The Eds have never been bigger, more successful or more full of fun, so come and join us for our best season yet

The London Edwardians is now 17 years old and whilst we may now be in the driving seat, we're always looking for top quality players and GKs both male and female all season round.
Our 16th season was a good one, seeing two sides promoted and now we're older, wiser and even more fun. This year sees the formal launch of a new men's side, so we now offer 4 men's, 4 ladies' and a mixed team, allowing us to cater to almost all standards of player (we've at least one player who once played for England, possibly due to a clerical error, and we've plenty who have only played at school prior to joining us).

Last season saw most of our sides finishing in the top half of their tables, with the Ladies 1s coming agonisingly close to winning the Surrey Premiership title, just a year after the men's 2s and 3s earned promotion and the men's 1s reached the Surrey Cup final for the second year running.

The men's 1st XI are currently playing in Southern Prem B and the ladies' 1s play in the Surrey Premier Division. Our other sides all play in Surrey Leagues with games taking place almost every Saturday between September and April. The mixed side have fortnightly fixtures on Sundays, always at Battersea Park.

The Club trains twice a week; we've our traditional slots on Thursday evenings across two south west London venues - Battersea Park and the Bank of England Sports ground in Roehampton. This season will also see a 'trial' session on Monday nights at Raynes Park to support the expansion of our men's section. Training will restart in September with fitness training beginning in August.

Membership Fees
We're very proud to have some of the cheapest subscriptions in London, a recent survey found that no comparable club was cheaper, and we've frozen subs for another year. Currently the price you see includes all match fees, insurance, training costs, mixed hockey and teas after games, as well as entitling you to discounts at our local pub.

  • - Full members for 1 season (half season rate available): £325
  • - Student membership for 1 season (half season rate available): £137.50
  • - £15 match fee for ad hoc players (playing less than or equal to 8 games over the season)
  • - fees for goalies have been waived once again this year

How to get involved
While we've secured most of our teams for this season, we're always looking for new top talent to help us in the pursuit of promotions and new Goalkeeping talent, where we remain one of the few clubs in London to offer £0 annual subs.
If you're interested in joining us, then why not get in touch via our contact page or drop us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
