The Organisation

Club Affiliation, Organisation and History

Established in May 2011, we are one of the most exciting amateur football clubs in London. We were established to serve as a base for everyone who moves to London for the first time, enabling our members to find new friends and keep fit through the club.

From May 2011 LTFC fielded 1 team in the West London Sunday League, a local unsanctioned competition running 3 monthly seasons. We continued in that league until Spring 2017.

From September 2013 LTFC fielded a second team in the West End League (London A.F.A) – this lasted one season.

From September 2017 we moved from the West London Sunday League into Central London Super Sunday League. We decided to continue with one team.

The Club seeks to promote the values of fair play, sportsmanship, courtesy and respect for each other, match officials and members of opposing teams and their coaches/supporters.
