Getting to know: Piccadilly FC

Following our ‘Getting to know’ of District Line Railway FC, it’s opened our eyes to a whole new world of football that being on the other side of the country to London, we never knew existed, so we did some digging and found a great club called Piccadilly FC.

Made up of people who work on the Piccadilly Line on the London Underground, Piccadilly FC were formed in 1996 as one of the founding teams as part of the London Underground League after a small cup competition in 1995 which Piccadilly FC reached and lost to District AFC.

‘Dilly Dilly’ have only one Division One once in their history, however the teams prospects have changed since manager Cem Toygar took over in 2015/16 after the club was relegated to Division Two and nearly folded all together. Since then the club has come to life, going undefeated in 2017/18 and returning to the top flight.

Fast forward to the current season and Piccadilly are on the verge of winning the Division One title all they need is a point against already relegated BTP FC, the club are also in the Semi-Final of the London Underground Cup, a cup they’ve never won and could possibly achieve the double.

Perhaps off the pitch though, is where this club is truly special. All you have to do is look down their Twitter to see that the club are strong supporters of Epilepsy Awareness and Research, furthermore have a working relationship with ‘Traveling with Epilepsy’

From everyone here at ‘ClimbingTheLadder’ we’d just like to wish Piccadilly FC all the best for their final league game and Cup Semi!
