Welcome to NPL Football Club

NPL Pavillion

There has been over 100 years of football at the Laboratory Grounds in Queen's Road Teddington, where Bushy House FC first played in competitive football, in 1905.

The present NPL Football Club developed from Bushy House FC and was formed in 1912 by employees of the National Physical Laboratories. In it's early years the club played in the Civil Service League, Middlesex County Amateur League and in the South West Middlesex League until 1948. At that time the club joined the Nemean League in the Amateur Football Alliance, before joining the Kingston and District League (KDL) in 1964. In the years that followed, the club expanded to reach a peak of six Saturday sides and two playing on Sundays.

The First and Second XIs were founder members of the Surrey South Eastern Combination League (SSEC) in 1991. Whilst relegated once back to the KDL, the place in the SSEC was cemented in the 00's.

In the 2012/2013 season the first XI reached new heights, losing just 1 game whilst winning the league and gaining promotion to the Surrey Elite Intermediate League. In the same season the club also won the SSEC league cup for a second time and were runners up in the Middlesex county cup

In recent years the First XI has reached the final of the Middlesex Intermediate Cup three times and the Surrey Intermediate Cup, unfortunately finishing as runner up on each occasion.

Currently First XI compete in the Surrey Elite Intermediate League which they won in the 2013/2014 season. The reserves play in the SSEC Junior Division One. The Third and Fourth XIs continue in the Kingston and District League, playing in Divisions Four and Five respectively. We also have a very active Vets side who turn out on Sunday Mornings.

The club also boasts an outstanding Youth Section with boasts a number of teams in all age groups playing on both Saturdays and Sundays.

The Football Club is now the largest of the eleven different sports sections within the parent NPL Sports Club and enjoys excellent facilities, which include two first class pitches, widely praised, new changing rooms and a well maintained pavilion, club house and bar.
