Balham FC was formed in 2011 in order to provide player progression into open age football for the hugely talented, high achieving age group teams of Balham Blazers FC. Having won back-to-back promotions in 2011/12 and 2012/13, Balham did the league and cup double in the Surrey South Eastern Combination in 2013/14. In 2014/15 Balham finished in a promotion position again in the Surrey Elite Intermediate League however promotion was denied due to Combined Counties League facility requirements not being met. Having moved to ground share with Cobham FC in order to meet the facility requirements Balham finished as runners up in the SEIFL in 2015/16 and as a result have been promoted to the Combined Counties League for the 2016/17 season. Having begun on Wimbledon Extension before moving to Cobham, Balham will be playing at Colliers Wood Utd for the next two seasons, ground sharing with the CCL Premier Division club. The Balham FC Youth team will be playing for the seventh season in the Southern Youth League, where in 2010/11 they were Central Division Runners Up, in 2011/12 they were SYL Invitational Plate Winners, in 2013/14 they were SYL Challenge Cup and SYL Invitational Plate Runners Up, in 2014/15 they were Central Division Winners, overall SYL Champions and SYL Challenge Cup Runners Up and in 2015/16 they were West Division Winners and overall SYL Runners Up. The Balham Panthers FC Womens team, formed in 2014/15, will be playing for the third season in the Greater London Womens Football League Division 2 South.

Balham Blazers FC, founded in 2001, is the U7-U16 age group section of Balham FC. Both are part of the same club and are managed and run by the same board of directors.

THE LONDON SENIOR TROPHY
Firsts v Forest Hill Park 3-1

Balham travelled to the Ladywell Arena in Lewisham with a nasty taste still in the mouth from the previous week’s result and first half performance. By the end of this tough battle on a heavy pitch against Forest Hill Park however in the London Senior Trophy, the taste was much sweeter.

LEAGUE
Youth v Sutton Utd 3-2

Balham made it three wins in a row with another strong all round performance against a well organised, speedy, Sutton Utd side, with whom they’d already had two very close games this season.

LEAGUE
Firsts v Fairleigh Rovers 2-2

Despite pre match warnings, following two excellent performances, not to take this game against the currently struggling, Fairleigh Rovers, lightly, that’s exactly what Balham did. The first half was the worst they played all season and Rovers deservedly went in at half time two goals to the good.

LEAGUE
Youth v Croydon Athletic 5-1

The new look Balham Youth team demonstrated their further development with a comprehensive win at home to AFC Croydon Athletic. The game was won in the first half when an electric Balham scored four.

LEAGUE
Firsts v AC London 2-1

IBalham knew that they were going to have to roll up their sleeves and show guts, grit and determination, in addition to playing very good football, if they weren’t to go the way most teams have done when playing AC London this season. On a bitterly cold night in Banstead they showed plenty of all that was required and as such emerged victorious at the end of a tough game.

LEAGUE
Firsts v South Park Reserves 6-0

If only Balham could play this well every time they emerge from the changing room. On a dank and drizzly Saturday afternoon at South Park’s lovely ground the boys from SW12 put on a sterling display of high tempo pass and move football from the first to last whistle.

LEAGUE
Youth v Lingfield 4-0

Balham’s very young Youth team continued to show great improvement in this SYL Plate Cup game against Lingfield as the new look squad gets more and more used to playing together.

LEAGUE
Firsts v Redhill 0-3

Balham lost this game, which was evenly contested throughout, because Redhill were better at both ends of the pitch. Sloppy goals conceded continues to be Balham’s undoing and on this occasion, that, in conjunction with not being as clinical as usual in front of goal, combined to make this a very frustrating night.

LEAGUE
Youth v Sutton Utd 2-2

A very young Balham Youth team, containing five under sixteens in the starting line up, played with guile and gusto and at the end of an exciting game were unlucky not to come away with more than a point to show for their efforts and the quality of football they played.

LEAGUE
Firsts v Dorking 7-1

After a slightly slow start Balham hit top form for the first time in a few games and ended up scoring a magnificent seven, one more than they scored in the cup game at the same venue earlier in the season. Playing on such a fantastic pitch clearly helps but some of the football played was of the highest order.

PREMIER CHALLENGE CUP
Firsts v Guildford City 1-2

As on the previous Saturday there was very much a feeling after this game that it was another one on balance of play and chances created that could have been won but, for other reasons, wasn’t.

LEAGUE
Youth v Fleet Spurs 3-4

For the fourth match in a row Balham’s Youth team lost a tight game that could and should have been won. On this occasion, having squandered an early penalty and another clearcut opportunity, defensive frailties came to the fore again and two goals were cheaply conceded.

LEAGUE
Firsts v Bagshot 3-5

There was a feeling of frustration and despair in the Balham changing room following this absorbing match against table topping Bagshot. Having been 1-0 and 2-1 down but then 3-2 up midway through the second half, thanks to a brace from Morgan Roberts-Watson and one from Jerome Boncoeur, when Balham were awarded what looked like a distinctly dubious penalty, the odds were on a two goal lead.

LEAGUE
Youth v Spelthorne Sports 1-3

Two second half mistakes from Balham proved to be the difference between victory and defeat in this SYL game at Spelthorne in what was otherwise a fast paced very even game. Spelthorne took the lead in the first half but Bryce Botsoi latched on to a beautifully measured curling through ball from Admir Ujkaj to make it all square at half time.

LEAGUE
Youth v Sutton Utd 3-4

Balham twice came back from a goal behind in the first half of this enthralling end to end cup tie at Sutton United’s Borough Ground. Their goals, scored by Dominic Simpson-Last and Bryce Botsoi, made the score even at 2-2 as the players left the immaculate 4g pitch for the warmth of the changing room.

LEAGUE
Cove 4-0

Balham came away from Hampshire with all three points after what in the end turned out to be an emphatic win. It wasn’t quite as straightforward however as the scoreline suggests with all four goals coming in the latter part of the game.

LEAGUE
Banstead Athletic 3-4

This game was always going to be a tough one given the away team were sitting second in the league prior to kick off. Balham started poorly and individual errors cost goals with the away side capitalising on two errors within the first thirty-five minutes of the game.

PREMIER CHALLENGE CUP
AFC Hayes 4-3

Balham took their fine form from the weekend into their Premier Challenge Cup 2nd round game away to AFC Hayes. Despite conceding, totally against the run of play, after starting like a train and putting the home team on the rack for the first twenty minutes, they soon got back on level terms courtesy of James Adebayo, who was in electric form. .

LEAGUE
Youth v Chertsey Town 3-3 (2-4 pens)

If ever anyone wanted proof that football is a game of two halves this was the one to be at. Balham were in top form for the first forty-five minutes against Ryman Youth League side, Chertsey Town, in this Surrey Floodlit Midweek County Cup game, at the Wibbandune.

LEAGUE
Staines Lammas FC 4-1

Balham put in an excellent performance on the road to run out comfortable winners away to Staines Lammas. Following a good start they took the lead when Jerome Boncoeur scored on eleven minutes and then extended it soon afterwards when Tomasz Wocial fired home from the penalty spot.

LEAGUE
Youth v Conquest 1-3

The all new look Balham Youth team suffered their first defeat of the season, losing a tight game to a talented and much more experienced team.

LEAGUE
Chessington & Hook FC 0-0

As the scoreline suggests this was a solid performance from Balham defensively however, having smashed six in midweek, they lacked a cutting edge going forward. Skipper, Grant Goodband and fellow centre back, Jake Henry, who are building an impressive partnership, were outstanding, as was keeper, Steve Harman, behind them.

LEAGUE
Youth v AFC Croydon Athletic 2-1

A last minute winner from Domininc Simpson-Last, on his debut for the Balham Youth team, sealed victory at The Mayfield Stadium. A new look Balham squad, with only two regulars from last season, is still very much finding its feet and although they’ve made a promising start in their first two games, in terms of results, they are a very much a work in progress and a long way from the finished article.

CHALLENGE CUP
Dorking 6-1

Balham were back to their imperious best in this RPM Records Division One Challenge Cup 2nd round game away to The Chicks in Dorking. Right at it from the start they popped the ball about beautifully on a carpet of a pitch and took the lead when Morgan Roberts-Watson finished on seven minutes.
