Crest of Hilltop Football Club



Hilltop Football Club, nicknamed “#thehilltopway,” is a non-league football club based in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

Established in 2005, they currently compete in the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties Premier Division North, which is part of the ninth tier of English football. The team calls Holloways Park their home ground.

Hilltop Football Club, based in Stonebridge and established in 2005, competes in the Combined Counties League Premier Division. Named after Hilltop Avenue, the club started in Division Three of the Middlesex County League in 2007, quickly securing promotion to Division Two. However, they left the league after two seasons but re-joined in 2014/15, only to be relegated to Division Three the following season. The club’s management overhaul led to a resurgence, culminating in promotions to Division Two and then Division One.

The 2018/19 season was pivotal for Hilltop, as they won Division One without losing any matches and only conceding 13 goals, and also claimed the Middlesex County Junior Cup with a decisive 6-1 victory over Western Athletic. Despite a loss in the Jim Rodgers Presidents Cup final to Clapton CFC, they achieved further success when the non-league pyramid reconstruction saw them promoted to the Combined Counties Football League Division One after winning the 2019/20 Middlesex County League Premier Division on a points-per-game basis due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Their first semi-professional season ended with a second-place finish and a playoff final loss, yet they were promoted to the Premier Division following Staines Town’s vacancy.

Hilltop’s growth includes the addition of a reserve team in the Middlesex County League, a women’s team in the Greater London Women’s Football League, and several youth teams. Predominantly drawing players from London’s Somali community, the club participates in international Somali tournaments and holds the Somali British Champions League title. The club’s recent success has garnered attention, with manager Abdullah Mohammed becoming the assistant coach of the Somali national team and forward Ali Mohamed earning his first call-up to the national side in 2021.
