Match Report: Lions 2-6 Virginia Water

I know you’ve heard this one before but it was once again a shame that some of the Lions excellent passing and movement didn’t end with a score line that more accurately reflected the possession during the game. Whilst Virginia Water are a good side I still think that with the footballing gods on our side we could beat them, but that will have to be for another season now! A superb Beckham like goal from Sam while still in his own half was the highlight, with Ed doubling our score in the second half. A mention also for Alex Batty who is drilling the back line like Tony Adams into something resembling Arsenal’s defence in the 90’s!

  • All TAFC training and matches are cancelled until further notice.
  • There should be no training whatsoever, or attempts to train or play friendlies under the TAFC badge.

Phil Lee

Teddington Athletic FC was formed in 2006 and Phil Lee was the club's heart and soul. Having recognised that many keen but not necessarily talented youngsters had no organised football in the local area, Phil co-founded the club and worked tirelessly as a team manager, referee, club chairman, and in his last year, as Director of Football. Phil sadly died in August 2011 after a very long and extremely brave battle with cancer. Phil set out the ethos of the club to facilitate football for young players of all abilities so long as they showed the right attitude and committment towards developing and training, a responsibility to their team and respect for referees - values still at the core of what TAFC stands for today.
In honour of Phil's memory, TAFC now present an annual award - The Phil Lee Award - to an individual or individuals associated with the club 'in recognition of their dedication, enthusiasm and voluntary service behind the scenes.'

Looking for a team

TAFC adopts an inclusive policy particularly in our younger age groups. This means that we focus on player development and game time over selection based on ability.

We operate a waiting list policy and all interested players/parents should register their details using the form below. As and when spaces become available in the relevant age groups the team managers will make contact with the list and invite those listed to a training session / trial.

We are oversubscribed in several age groups but if we have willing volunteers who could be interested in becoming a manager or assistant manager then we can potentially create new teams. If you were willing to consider this then please contact us

Get in touch and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.  We look forward to hearing from you!
