BACK IN TIME
Peckham Town Football club was established in 1982 by Bryan Hall first as
Brimington Park FC because a group of friends held kick - abouts every evening on the play area that was known as Brimington Park which is located off Colmer Road SE 15 now called Sparks.
By the end of 1982 the Jamaican Embassy had agreed to sponsor the team and it was decided that we should change the club's name to Drovers Athletic FC as most of the players came from the Drovers Place housing estate.
At the end of 1983 the team again changed its name by popular demand to represent the Peckham community to our present name Peckham Town Football Club.
In 2003 Harriet Harman QC MP and now Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Member of Parliament for Peckham agreed to be the club's patron.
The football club 1st Team currently play its football in the premier division of the Bromley & District Football League.
The senior Sunday team won every honour in the Metropolitan Sunday Football League in clouding a premier division and league cup double.
The team had been in this league since 2006 during which time we have won the championship, the league cup and was a beaten finalist in the senior cup as well as reaching the Simi-Finals of the London Senior Challenge Cup going out on pens in 2007.
In 2008 the team again had a good season as they recorded runners - up finish in the premiership; we again won the league cup and once again bowed out of the London Senior Challenge Cup Simi-Finals going down on pens again.
Peckham Town Football Club has a year round football in the community programme delivering social regeneration in the Peckham and surrounding communities reaching over 3000 young people each year.
The Club currently offers football opportunities to Boys and Girls from various ages and abilities; we are a Football Association Charter Development Club.
In June 2009 the club form a Saturday team under the name
Southwark Borough FC.
November 2009 saw the club submit its application to the London Football Association to gain FA Charter Standard Community Club status as well as Intermediate status.
In June 2009 Bryan Hall again decided that the club should compete in senior Saturday football, however Bryan wanted players from throughout Southwark be given the opportunity to represent the new club and not just be linked to Peckham Town.
After weeks of planning Bryan asked Don Walters who was already a member of Peckham Town FC and Lee Lang who was the manager of Caribb FC who are a local Sunday club to come on board as the new team’s secretary.
In July 09 Southwark Borough FC played its inaugural game against Canning Town FC winning the game 6 - 2.
