Getting to Know: South Western Railway FC

Our next edition of ‘Getting to Know’ and as we always do, we are going from one end of the Non-League ladder to another.

After we’ve reached the glittering heights of Non-League covering social media famous 1874 Northwich, we are taking a look at newcomers to the footballing world South Western Railway FC.

With a squad made up entirely of members of staff from the South Western Railway Company, South West are affiliated with the Hertfordshire FA and as of 2019 will be competing in the GTR Railway Friendly Flexi League.

The Flexi league has been very successful, with only four teams participating, the league goes through 6 rounds in order to keep things interesting for all involved.

Similar leagues featuring Railway based sides are being set up across the country, for example the highly successful London Underground League which now has two divisions of roughly 6 teams.

As a newly set up team, the very organised lads who represent South Western, have a full tracksuit, home and away kit, no small feet for a Flexi League team. They’ve even found the time to produce some merchandise in the form of pin badges (yes we bought one).

We would just like to wish all the lads at South Western Railway all the best in the next round of their league and we hope you have a long and successful future.
