Last time out we covered a team that’s been around for coming up to a 100 years, this time we’ve gone for a team in its infancy.
Caversham United FC were founded in 2015, after new owners took over a club called AFC Palmer, despite the club being relatively new the club hasn’t taken long to get going as they currently sit in 2nd place in the Reading and District Sunday League.
The founding of Caversham was what really caught our attention, a social media campaign to decide the clubs badge, kit and nickname, has lead to the clubs following growing very quickly for a club at this level especially on Twitter. What a kit it is by the way! mady by Kappa and available to buy on footballkitbox.com.
As many non-league clubs will understand volunteers are essential to the running of any club, but a special shout must go to the person who runs “The Billy Goats” twitter, labeled as “The hardest working admin on twitter” by none other than the Italian Giants Roma.
Caversham are working hard to develop relationships with other non-league sides from around the world, including one club we know very well, Saint Anthony’s FC. Despite these links around the world we were most impressed that the club has already formed a very important link to an amazing charity in “Balls to Cancer” a men’s cancer charity that I’m sure everyone will agree do amazing work.
The journey this club has been on, including becoming homeless after their first season is incredible and everyone here at ClimbingTheLeagues would just like to say good luck in the future to “The Billy Goats” and we strongly suggest you check out Caversham’s journey here.
