Manager- Steve O'Boyle
Key Player- Chinedu McKenzie
Last Season Finish- 1st (Southern Counties East League)

Who are they?
Phoenix Sports F.C. is an Englishfootball club located in Barnehurst, in Greater London. The club plays in the Ryman Football League. Phoenix Sports spent most of its history in the Kent County Football League, with a six-year stint in the Spartan League in the late 1980s and early 90s. The club was accepted into the newly formed Kent Invicta Football League for the inaugural 2011–12 season.

In 2012, they became the inaugural runners-up of the Kent Invicta League. In the 2012–13 season, they went one better, winning the Kent Invicta League championship, gaining promotion to the Southern Counties East League.

Then last season as we all now know they came up victorious and were champions of the Southern Counties Eastern Division.

Key Player?
Next signing Chinedu McKenzie from reprieved Redbridge is a superb signing for the newly promoted side. Chinedu is a superb player and Redbridge without him last season would really have been a lot worse off from their 23rd finish which saw them reprieved.

For Phoenix Sports Club McKenzie could be the difference between what they want to achieve this season. He brings that electrifying pace that would scare any defender on his day and is a great addition to the squad.

The clubs ground...
The club now plays at Phoenix Sports Ground, Mayplace Road East, Barnehurst DA7 6JT. The club originally played at Danson Park.

This ground was constructed by the club's own members on land received from the council after they were impressed by their plans. Planning permission has been awarded to the club for a stand and floodlights in order to conform with step 5 ground regulations.
