Uxbridge FC were founded in the year 1871, and made their debut as a team 2 years later in the FA Cup with a win in the first round. They were founding members of the Southern League in 1894, before the club was disbanded in 1902, but reformed in 1904 after their debt was paid off. The club joined the Athenian League in 1919-20 as Uxbridge Town.

The Reds’ most notable tournaments to date are the Middlesex Senior and Charity Cups, with 28 finals between the two competitions and 11 wins.

In their most recent seasons, Uxbridge’s first team finished 3rd in their league in 19-20, before the season was curtainrailed. They only managed to play 6 games of the 2020-21 season before games were cancelled, and so far this season find themselves unbeaten after three games in the Isthmian League South Central Division.

Standings:

The Lions found themselves getting off to a slow start in the Cup last week, losing heavily to Kings Langley U18. They will look to rectify this result and get the League off to a positive start. Uxbridge however have made a slightly more positive start in the league, beating Northwood 4-1 at home in their cup opener. Despite the recent results, an open match is to be expected for the first League matchday.

Current Form:

Wembley U18 – —-L

Uxbridge U18 – —-W
