They played in the Edenbridge/Caterham League from 1923-57 and the Croydon League 1958-1976.
They purchased their present ground at Parsonage Field in 1959 when the players had a whip round and bought the ground.
They won the Surrey Intermediate S.E Division 3 1978/79, Premier Division Surrey Intermediate 1981-82.
They were one of the founder members of the Surrey Premier League 1982/83 and promoted to the Combined Counties League in 1983-84. They finished mid table in their first season with a highest finish in the Combined Counties Premier of 6th in 1990/91 but were relegated to the Surrey Premier in 93/94, although they finished half way up the League. They remained in the Surrey Premier winning the Premier League Cup in 2002/03. They rejoined the Combined Counties League when the Surrey SeniorLeague amalgamated with the Combined Counties League in 2003-04.
Reached the final of the Surrey County Premier Cup 2008/09 before losing to the Metropolitan Police 2-1.
After a few challenging seasons where the Foxes finished in the bottom two for 2 seasons running a change of management was sought by the club.
For the start of the 2013/14 season Barry Regelous was bought on board as the new first team Manager with Tim Moffatt coming is as head coach.
The season proved to be a huge success with a solid 8th place finish and a leg cup semi final to enjoy. The level of commitment was superb and there we're some excellent performances as well.

For the 2014/15 season we will continue to run with 3 senior sides, a vets team and with the introduction of a local youth team the future is looking brighter for the Foxes. Ground improvements are still on-going with a new roof having been installed and funding has been applied for to replace the perimeter fence.

Season 2014/15 proved to be the most successful in the clubs history. The first team managing to complete the impossible dream, winning the Combined Counties Division One, leading the league table for almost the whole season. The reserves also got in on the winning act, securing a league and cup double in the Surrey Elite Reserve Division. The third team improved in their second season, finishing 3rd in the Redhill & District division One.
