The USRC Football Section was founded in 1995 over a few drinks and football talk in the Club’s Gunner's bar – a tradition that has long continued! Since that initial idea took shape nearly 20 years ago, USRC now boasts over 70 players and three teams: Gunners playing in the Legal League Division 1, 1911 playing in the Legal Legends League and Vitesse, our social team, playing in the Legends Over-45s.
Since joining the Legal League in 2008 USRC has never looked back, eventually forming two teams – Power and Experience – the former finishing in third place in Division One during 2013-14 via an open, attacking style delivered from a ‘United Nations’ of players from five of the world’s continents.
USRC 1911, named after the year the United Services Recreation Club itself was founded, aims to maintain its competitiveness in the League whilst never losing sight of the original motivation of the first ever USRC team formed all those years ago – to offer an opportunity to club members and friends who are both willing and able to be as involved in football as much as possible.
USRC looks forward to welcoming everyone to Friday night football at King’s Park and extends this welcome to all teams after every game to come down to the Club’s Gunners Bar which is just around the corner. Here all players can enjoy some beer, food and in-depth, post-match, (...ahem...), “analysis” in true pub footballer style.
